Snowmen Rice Krispy Treats

These are the fun Snowmen Rice Krispy Treats I made last year with my daughter’s kindergarten class. I made the snowmen the night before the class party and asked the other parents to provide the candy for decorating. The kids love these, and they were very simple to create. Here is how:


-Rice Krispy Cereal, Marshmellow, Butter, White Cupcake Liners, Sucker Sticks, Pretzel sticks, Candy & White Frosting


Make Rice Krispie treats according to the package direction, but instead of spreading the treats in a 13×9 dish to cool, just keep them in the mixing bowl and set inside the refrigerator for about an hour. (It may not take a whole hour, I just got busy doing other things and didn’t get back into the kitchen until then.)

Line a cupcake pan with white cupcake liners.


*Tip: Spray your hands with cooking spray so the treats can form into balls and not stick all over your hands.

1. Form your first ball and place it inside a cupcake liner.

2. Stick your sucker stick into the center of the ball.

3. Stack 2 more balls onto the first ball by sliding them over the stick.

4. Let the kids decorate them! Give them each a spoonful of frosting and they can “paint” the snowman and stick the candy on, or just have them dip each piece of candy into the frosting to act as an adhesive to the rice krispie treat. We used Skittles for the face and buttons, Twizzlers for the scarf, pretzels for the arms and candy corn for the nose. I thought it would be cute to make a hat out of a York Peppermint patty and small Reeses PB cup (upside down) but the parent volunteer didn’t bring these, so we made do with what we had!
