It wouldn’t be the holidays without making a yummy treat with your kids and this Snowman Rice Krispie Treats recipe fit the bill. They are fun, festive, and delicious!
We ended up using both the traditional Rice Krispies and Cocoa Krispies for this recipe. We also used gumdrops, icing, pretzels, and candy eyes to decorate our snowmen.
How to make Rice Krispie Treats
If you’ve never made Rice Krispie Treats before, it is super easy.
1. You start with a little butter and a bag of mini marshmallows in a pan cooking over medium heat.
2. Melt the butter and marshmallows and then mix in the Rice Krispies.
3. Press them into a baking dish, let cool, and enjoy.
How to make Snowman Rice Krispie Treats
Since we made Snowman Rice Krispie Treat, we took the mixture directly from the pan and formed them into balls for snowmen.
Then, we used our frosting as glue to add the decorations. If we make this again, we will use brown frosting. The red frosting made the snowmen look a little scary (in my opinion). No one seemed to care, because we all gobbled them up pretty quickly!
We also had some fun decorating the kids’ noses with frosting. 🙂
