A classic treat, these Christmas Tree Rice Krispie Treats take on a holiday look and feel for a fun Christmas baking project!
Turn your favourite Rice Krispie treats into Christmas trees trimmed with icing and sprinkles. These are fun, easy and everyone will love them!
The coloured Rice Krispie treats are available for a short time during the holiday season and I snatched up a few boxes as soon as I saw them in stores.
These treats are often one of the first things I make when I start Christmas baking, along with shortbread cookies, sugar cookies and peppermint meltaway cookies!
