Christmas Rice Krispie Trees

Every year I love making festive treats and this year I discovered a recipe online for Christmas Rice Krispie Trees! They are SO easy to make and look really pretty and effective!

The ingredients you need to make them are:

200g  White Chocolate ( I went for Milky Bar!)

200g Rice Krispies

Green powdered food colouring

White icing tube

Star sprinkles

Icing sugar

Parchment paper

You can make 6 trees out of the above ingredients and maybe even more depending on what size you make the tree moulds.

Here’s how you make these delicious treats:

STEP ONE: Make tree moulds out of the parchment paper

Cut out  8-inch circles and cut them in half. Each semi-circle is one mould. Roll them into a cone shape and secure with tape. There is a video here where I found the recipe showing you the technique to make the cones.

STEP TWO: Melt the white chocolate

STEP THREE: Add the food colouring to the white chocolate

STEP FOUR: Add the Rice Krispies to the mix

200g is quite a lot of Rice Krispies so I added a bit at a time until they were all green.

STEP FIVE: Spoon the Rice Krispie mixture into your parchment paper cones and press down the base with the back of a spoon.

STEP SIX: Place the cones in a glass to keep them upright and put them in the fridge for one hour.
