Snowman Rice Krispie Treats are a fun holiday activity for kids that doubles as a tasty treat!
Calling all cool moms! Are you ready for a fun winter activity that your kids are going to LOVE?
Snowman Rice Krispie Treats are a great way to entertain the kids at class parties, playgroups, or just for a fun afternoon snack! You can make the snowmen ahead of time, and then let the kids decorate them when ever you’re ready!
Snowman Rice Krispie Treats
- one batch of your favorite rice krispy treats cooled but not hardened
- pretzel sticks
- candies for decorating
- mini m&m's eyes & buttons
- fruit rolls scarf
- candy corn nose
- peppermint patties hat
- peanut butter cups or Rolos hat
- vanilla frosting in a piping bag or use a ziplock bag with one corner snipped
- cupcake liners
- sucker sticks
- sandwich bag
Line a cupcake pan with the cupcake liners.
Form 3 balls per snowman using the cooled (but not hardened) rice krispy treats. Use approximately ½ cup for the base, ⅓ cup for the middle, and ¼ cup for the head.
Place the ½ cup ball in a cupcake liner and insert a sucker stick, then slide the next two rice krispy treat balls over the sucker stick, so they're all stacked one on top of the other.
Cut the top of the sucker stick off.
Decorate with the candies, as desired, using the frosting to help the candies stick to the snowman.
Spray your hands with cooking spray to prevent the treats from sticking to your hands as you roll them into balls. Form the snowmen while the rice krispy treats are still warm and malleable. If they cool too much before you form your snowmen, the rice krispy mixture will harden and be difficult to work with. Sucker sticks add a lot of stability to the snowmen, especially while they are still warm.
… and that’s it!
So simple, but festive!
