WHAT ARE RICE KRISPIE TREATS?

Rice krispie treats are primarily made of rice krispies cereal, melted butter and mini marshmallows. These Christmas pops are made even easier by simply using pre made cereal treats, dipping them in chocolate and then covering them in candy and sprinkles.

3. Place the treats on a parchment paper lined baking sheet.

4.  Add candy to the melted chocolate before it cools – I like to have it ready in small bowls. Press the pretzels on the top of the rice krispie, eyes in the middle and nose below.

5.  Place the crispy treats in the fridge and allow the chocolate to harden completely before serving.

TIPS FOR MAKING THESE REINDEER TREATS:

  • Use candy melts for best results, the wafer chocolate melts the best. Add one teaspoon of coconut oil to other chocolate to help it melt and pour better.
  • Lay the chocolate covered treat on a parchment lined baking sheet for easy moving and transporting before the chocolate has hardened.
  • Place the chocolate in the fridge or freezer to completely cool before serving.
  • Store these yummy treats in a large freezer bag or airtight container for up to three months at room temperature. They can also be stored in the fridge to prevent the chocolate from melting.
