If you follow me on Instagram you might have seen the box of Rice Krispies and the bag of Marshmallows that I posted over the weekend. The caption read “Do you know what THIS means at OUR house? This means my baby sister will be here soon! Her favorite.”

In fact, when my oldest saw the Rice Krispies and Marshmallows sitting on the counter in the kitchen he immediately asked what day Auntie would be here. He knows all to well that a visit from my sister means that it is time for a batch (or two) of her favorite treats!
She says that my Rice Krispies Treats are better than hers.
And I say that is her way of getting me to make them for her.
Since my sister’s visit was to attend our little guy’s Christmas Program I decided that Rice Krispies Snow Capped Christmas Trees were in order.
Rice Krispies Snow Capped Christmas Trees
Rice Krispies Cereal
Butter or Margarine
Green Food Coloring
2 Cups White Chocolate Chips
Optional: Sprinkles and/or Candy Pieces
Follow your recipe (or the recipe on the bag of marshmallows) to make Rice Krispies Treats.
Add Green Food Coloring to the melted Marshmallow and Butter mixture before mixing it with the dry cereal. Place parchment paper in the pan before pouring in the mixture. Allow time to set.
Lift the Rice Krispies out of the pan by picking up the parchment paper. Use a Christmas Tree Cookie Cutter to create your festive holiday trees.
Melt 2 cups of White Chocolate Chips (either in the microwave or over the melt setting on the stove). Dip the tips of the trees into the melted chocolate then place on wax paper to set. If desired add sprinkles or candy before the chocolate sets.
