On the 3rd Day of Christmas, my kids and I made really simple, yummy and super festive Rice Krispies Cut-outs!
We shaped our treats into gingerbread men but you can use whatever shape you love the most (a Christmas tree or snowman would be really cute too!). These little treats are such a snap to whip together but yet they look so fun and festive!! This is the perfect “make with your kids” Christmas treat!
It’s as simple as 1-2-3!
My kiddos decorated these!
The perfect little treat for my little man!
3 tablespoons butter
5 cups mini marshmallows
6 cups Rice Krispies cereal
Your favorite cookie cutter
1 can of Vanilla Frosting
Festive sticks for your treats (optional)
Because of the size of my cookie cutter, I was able to get 5 gingerbread men out of one batch. The amount per batch will depend on the size of your cookie cutter.
Grease (I used Pam) a 9×13 baking dish.
In a microwavable bowl, melt your butter (about 60 seconds or so). Once melted, add in your marshmallows and coat with melted butter. Microwave another minute and a half or so until marshmallows are melted. Remove from microwave and immediately pour over cereal. Toss until all of your cereal is covered and then pour into your baking dish. Using a spatula that has been sprayed with Pam, press your treats down until everything is flat and smooth in your baking dish.
Allow this to set at least 30 minutes before you begin cutting them into shapes.
Spray your cookie cutter with Pam and then use it to cut shapes out of your 9×13 pan. (I was able to get 5 out of mine). Place on wax paper.
Once removed to the wax paper, use your frosting and sprinkles to decorate. If you want, add a stick for easy munching!
Happy cut-out time!
