A few Christmases ago, while my kids were still quite young, we made some edible crafts that kept them occupied long enough to allow me some peace and quiet for an hour or so and also helped fill their little tummies. At that time, I wanted them not just to enjoy making something with Mommy but also have a sense of fulfillment with the work of their hands. So, we made these easy rice krispie Christmas wreaths.

I have totally forgotten that I took pictures of our finished goodies and remembered these only last night when I was transferring some photos from my old and now almost dying computer to my flash drive. I wanted to rescue the few remaining photos in the computer before it totally conks out on me. Thankfully, I found these and thought to myself I ought to add these photos to a blog post. After all, it’s the perfect timing for these photos as it’s already Christmas season.

Ingredients

  • 6 tablespoons Butter
  • 4 cups mini-Marshmallows
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • 4 cups Rice Krispies
  • Sprinkles, candy canes, dried fruits, etc. to decorate

Instructions

  1. In a large saucepan, over low heat, melt the butter. Add the marshmallows and stir until melted.
  2. Remove the pan from the heat and add the Vanilla extract. Stir in the rice krispies and mix well until fully coated.
  3. Pull out roughly about 1/4 cup clump from the mixture and form into wreaths about 2 1/2 inches in diameter. Use buttered or greased hands for easy handling. Place the formed krispies on wax paper or parchment paper.
  4. Decorate with sprinkles, candies, colored sugar or whatever you fancy. It is better to decorate the wreaths as soon as they are formed to ensure that the decorations stick properly. Can be made ahead and freezeable, too. Simply thaw in a cool room.

    Great way to keep kids occupied. I don't have any kids around, so I may have to rent one or two to justify making these.

    These are so cute. These would go over well at any holiday parties. Especially with kids. And letting kids make them is brilliant. Keeps them busy and allows them to be creative.
