Isn’t this Winter Wonderland made of Rice Krispies Treats adorable?!?!
I could not be more excited to share our final Kellogg’s Rice Krispies Challenge with y’all after what has been such a fun and creative year! For the last challenge, we wanted to focus on the kids again! During this time of year, we all get to reclaim the magic, joy, and excitement of the holidays so this project was really for everyone!
There is nothing more important than making memories with your kids and making this project with your kids will definitely do that! So, forget the gingerbread and whip up some Rice Krispies treats this year while you let your imagination run wild! From reindeer to snowmen, houses to trees, there are no limits to what your very own Rice Krispies Winter Wonderland can hold!
Let’s not forget a yummy treat to snack on while you work! Featured in our Winter Wonderland as giant lollipop trees, y’all will love the taste of the Swirly Peppermint Roll-Ups! With only a few easy, kid-friendly steps these versatile treats are perfect for parties, gifts, and holiday snacks!
Swirly Peppermint Rice Krispies Roll-Ups
3 tbls butter
6 cups Kelloggs Rice Krispies
4 cups mini marshmallows
6 regular candy canes, crushed
1 can cream cheese frosting
Red Food Coloring (Opt)
Melt margarine or butter in a large sauce pan on low heat. Add mini marshmallows and stir constantly to avoid burnt marshmallows. Remove from heat and stir in 6 cups of Kelloggs Rice Krispies. Set aside for about 5 minutes or until the Rice Krispie treats are comfortable to handle. They need to be warm so they are easy to work with.
Spray hands with non-stick spray or coat with butter, add more as needed. Flatten Rice Krispies onto a greased baking sheet to create a thin flat layer of Rice Krispies Treats. Evenly spread a thin layer of cream cheese frosting on the Rice Krispies and top with crushed candy cane. Starting at one end, gently lift and begin rolling your rectangle long ways until you have a finished roll.
Allow roll set in freezer or fridge before slicing.
yield: 1 large roll/6-8 Slices
Everything in our Winter Wonderland is edible and made out of Rice Krispies! We used only Rice Krispies and food safe materials when creating our display. From cotton candy snow to Rice Krispies presents with licorice ribbon, we really mean that it is ALL edible!
We had so much fun getting together and creating such a delicious recipe and festive display this challenge! We are excited to share how we made the rest of our creations with you too! Each member of our team has agreed to share detailed instructions on how to make all of the projects in our Winter Wonderland. Stay tuned to all of our blogs over the two weeks so you can create a Rice Krispies winter wonderland of your own.
We hope you are inspired to get in the kitchen with your kids and start making memories! Have a wonderful holiday season!
