For Halloween this year, I made Candy Corn Rice Crispy Treats I was craving them again recently and decided I needed something festive for the holidays. I thought about making Rice Crispy Treat Candy Canes, but in the ended decided on a wreath, and I must say it turned out so cute!
This would make a great addition to your holiday table for your holiday party! Add a few Cinnamon Imperials (a.k.a. Red hots for some added decoration and it will be picture perfect!
Rice Crispy Treat Wreath
- 4 Cups Rice Crispy Cereal
- 3 Cups Mini Marshmallows
- 3 Tablespoons Unsalted Butter
- Green Food Coloring
- 2 Cups Rice Crispy Cereal
- 1 Cups Mini Marshmallows
- 1 Tablespoons Unsalted Butter
- Red Food Coloring
1 .Line a large cake pan with parchment on the bottom and grease the edges. You can either use one large cake pan or two 8-inch pans.
2. Measure out the rice crispy cereal into two separate bowls; one for the ring and one for the bow.
3. Starting with the green layer, in a large saucepan, melt the 4 cups of marshmallows and 3 tablespoons butter. Keep over medium heat until melted and smooth. Once the marshmallows have melted stir in the green food coloring until desired color, it might take a few drops.
4. Pour melted marshmallows over the bowl with 4 cups of rice crispy cereal. Stir until cereal is coated.
5. Pour into the cake pan (or divide into the two cake pans) shape the rice crispies until the green ring is packed tight around the edge of the pan.
6. Repeat steps to form the red bow using the second set of ingredients. Once it has been mixed and the cereal has been coated, shape the cereal into a tightly packed bow. Place in desired spot of the wreath. I did mine at the top. I also pressed a few cinnamon candies into the wreath for decoration.
7. Allow the rice crispy treats to cool before removing from the pan.
8. Store in an air tight container.
