Christmas Tree Krispie Treats

Holiday baking is SO fun – even more so I think when you have excited kids around! My boys love helping in the kitchen, especially when we’re making tasty holiday treats! Christmas cookies are usually a staple. But, sometimes it’s fun to change it up a bit! Rice Krispies treats are ALWAYS a hit with my kids – no matter how we shape them. And we do like to get creative with shapes – we’ve done copycat Disney Mickey treats, Easter egg treats, and even Star Wars Rice Krispies Treats! So why not make some cute Christmas trees in December? I LOVE these! And kids will LOVE to decorate them!
