25 Days of Xmas - Day 13 - Christmas Rice Crispy Treats

By 2:14 PM , , ,

The simple rice crispy seems to find a way of making itself into a treat for every season! While this bake isn't exactly Christmas seasonal, with a few extra touches, you can instantly transform it into a holiday treat. And they are so simple to make and would make a great snack at a Christmas party or perfect for a Christmas movie night!

Christmas Crispy Treats

You will need:

  • 200g Rice Crispys
  • 300g Marshmallows
  • 50g Butter
  • A Selection of Decorations (I use Crispy M&Ms)

Grease and line your pan of choice with butter and baking paper. I used two shallow brownie pans so I got nice thick treats, but any pan will do.

On your hob on low, melt the marshmallows and butter together till smooth and runny. Make sure to do this slowly, otherwise your marshmallows will burn. I would advise on a hob rather than the microwave to get the best consistency.

As soon as it is melted, instantly pour the mixture into your rice crispys and mix until it is all combined. You need to do this quickly, so that the marshmallows don't go all stringy. TOP TIP: Have a boiled kettle of water ready to pour into your pan so that any remaining marshmallow will melt off.

Pop the mixture evenly into your pan and gently press down with a spatula to level it off.

Finally, it is time to decorate. I went for red and green M&Ms (yes, I picked them out of a bag of regular ones, only to go to town the next day and see festive red and green M&Ms!!!). Other great decorations could be edible glitter, smashed up candy canes and silver balls. You can really go to town - well, it is Christmas. Make sure to press your decorations firmly into the mixture so that they stick!

Then all you have to do is leave them in the fridge to set (I would say a day preferably, but a few hours is good if you are impatient!), then chop them up into bite sized pieces, o my preferred method, big old chunks. This are incredibly moreish and are that simple to make, you could whip up a batch each day! Let me know if you make these and how you decorate them by leaving a comment below or tweeting me a pic @prettyedu88.
