Christmas Tree Krispie Treat - this is easy and funny recipe that will make your kids happy.  XOXOXOXO

I know, it’s not yet Thanksgiving and I have the Christmas trees ready. It surely looks a little crazy, but that is one of the advantages of the food blogger. If you are like a child jumping around waiting for Christmas to come, you have the perfect excuse to enjoy the Christmas magic even one month earlier. But still, I want to share the recipes with you, my dear and avid readers, just in time.

And of course, there is my little son, who has already for days been planning what Santa could bring him and he is very inpatient to get the Christmas tree and decorate it. Since it is really too early, these Christmas Tree Krispie Treat will be a really sweet comfort:)

Ok, enough, it’s time to be frank and stop hiding behind my son and the role of „food blogger“. I’m the one who is worse than a five year old child waiting for the festivities. As soon as the first decorations lit up the shops, I began buying them in secret and began planning the Christmas celebration this year.

These sweet little Christmas trees I have in mind since I saw those adorable Rice Crispie Pumpkins this autumn. That sweet mix of marshmallow and Rice Crispies is like play dough, perfect for making whatever you wish of it. With the help of the foam which comes in a waffle cone pack to protect the cones, the trees are easily shaped. After that, you melt the white chocolate and pipe it like a garland around each tree, and the rest you use as glue to hang the candy and pearls as decorations on the tree. And yes, there are the Mini Reese’s Cups which are glued as the trunk of the tree, and instead of the star, you put the peppermint candy on top. Your trees are now ready and you can wait in piece for Santa to come through your chimney and leave the present you wanted for years.

    1. Hi Yvonne, they last for no more than two days at room temperature in airtight container, but in airtight container in the fridge you can keep them longer or freeze for up to 6 weeks.
    1. Hi Chanda, you could roll it with you hands just grease them well before you start modeling the tree, or make a cone from a carboard overlayed with parchment paper.
    1. Hi Jen, You can transfer melted chocolate into ziploc bag, cut the corner off and pipe the chocolate around the tree.
