Rice Krispie Christmas Wreath

Yum
I woke up at 5am this morning to bake my cookies for Christmas. I had a lot to get done today and I did not want to be disturbed by little kids asking me for a taste or a husband sneaking off with cookies right out of the oven.  I was on a mission. Bake, bake, bake.  I was done by 9am and it looked like a bakery exploded in my kitchen.  Of course, the kids were down around 8am and they were thrilled with what they saw on all the baking trays.  The sweet treat that really caught their eye was what I made in a moment of craziness around 7am... this Rice Krispy Christmas Wreath.  I had all the ingredients just sitting there and while I waited for a batch of cookies to come out of the oven I made this on the stove-top.  I told you I was a little crazy.  Actually rice krispies treats are very easy and I know most of you have probably made them and could make them with your eyes closed.  I thought this Christmas Wreath would be something special and from my kid's reaction it was worth the moments of multitasking and running around. I free formed this wreath and decorated it with what I had around (red and green M&Ms and sprinkles).  I think this will make a great centerpiece for my dessert table.

Ingredients:
1 box of Rice Krispies (9oz or 8 cups)
1 bag of mini marshmallows (10oz)
1 stick of butter or magarine (8 Tbs worth)
green food coloring
M&M, sprinkles etc.. for garnish










Directions:
On medium low heat melt your butter, marshmallows and food coloring.  Stir until fully melted and combined.






Add your rice crispy cereal  and stir well until everything is fully coated in the marshmallow mixture. Place a glass or can in the middle some wax paper and free form your wreath shape. Decorate with sprinkles and M&M.  Allow to set for 1 hour.
                           Enjoy.

  11. Great minds must think alike! Me and the kids made something similar earlier this week. I just finished posting it and sharing it on Foodbuzz when I go to check my inbox and see your post. Too funny! I love your large version! And the m&m's are a great touch. I bet your kids were happy to have this! I hope you and your family have a very Merry Christmas!!!!

  12. I love this wreath Ramona! I never thought to shape rice krispie treats into anything but squares before! How very creative and even though you got up early to bake, bake, bake...I think the lovely aromas coming from your kitchen would have me up early too! This is so festive and your kids must be thrilled with all the goodies coming from your kitchen! : )
