We are excited to share a little Rice Krispies Treat idea with you today. Reindeer Rice Krispies? Yes please. They are SOOOO easy to put together and might the cutest thing we’ve made in a long time. I just love them.
We used to always have a baking day with all the girls in our family. We’d just each bring the stuff for one or two Christmas treats and bake together all day. It was always so much fun, but we’ve missed it the past year or two. I’m happy to report that it is on the calendar again for this year and adding these adorable Reindeer Treats would be perfect for the kids to help with.
Here’s what you’ll need: (affiliate links included)
- Premade Rice Krispies Treats (or of course you could make your own)
- Candy Eyeballs
- Red M&M’s or other red candy
- Dark Cocoa Candy Melts
- Craft Spoons – or just regular popsicle sticks
Unwrap your Rice Krispies Treats and carefully push your craft spoons into the treats. Melt your chocolate following the instructions on the package and then spoon it into a plastic baggie. Cut a small hole in the corner of your bag and you’ll be ready to make the antlers. Also use a small dot of chocolate under the candy eyes and m&m nose to attach them to the Rice Krispies Treat.
So super simple, but so super cute! If you wanted to you could package them up individually in cellophane bags and tie some bakers twine around them. Then your kids could hand them out to their friends. Or just stand them all up and serve them on a platter or cake plate. They’ll be super cute for holiday parties or just a fun Christmas movie night with your family.
