When it comes to Santa’s best, it has to be Rudolph. His red nose lights the way for Santa’s Sleigh on Christmas Eve delivering toys to all the good little boys and girls.

Let me show you how I made this No Bake Classic treat that can easily be made as a fun Holiday Craft too. Did I say CRAFT? I sure did! Why not let the kiddos help make them. Think of the possibilities. Maybe a family Christmas Party, or maybe as a fun activity at an elementary school classroom. So fun.

How to make Rice Crispy Treats Christmas Reindeer

Making a batch of Rice Crispy Teats is quick and easy to throw together. But feel free to use the pre-made rice krispy treats. They are also a great option.

In a large saucepan melt butter and marshmallows together. Once melted remove from heat and add Rice Cereal and mix together. Pour into a 9×9 baking dish sprayed with cooking spray. Allow treats to cool to room temperature before cutting.

Pro TIPs

I find it best to press cereal into pan firm. This will help create a good solid base to work with for pop treats.

Once cooled, cut into rectangles approximately 2 inch by 3 inch or smaller. Press a wooden popsicle stick into one end making a Krispie Treat Pops.

Pre-made Rice Krispy Treats

If using pre-made Rice Krispy Treats, unwrap each treat and press wooden stick into treat.

How to make Rice Krispie Treat Pops

Time to make a fun Rudolph Rice Krispie Treats. In a small bowl melt milk chocolate in microwave. Heat for 30 seconds and stir, add an additional 15 seconds and stir until smooth.

I find it easiest to pour melted chocolate into a Wilton Piping Bag or use a Quart size Zip-loc Bag. Snip only a tiny pit of the corner and carefully pipe chocolate antlers on each square treat.

Adding Chocolate antlers to rice krispy treats

Use a small dot of chocolate add eyes and red candy nose. Allow chocolate to cool and set holding candy garnish in place.

These fun and easy pops are fun to eat, adorable to make and deliver to neighbors and so fun to use as a craft activity for Holiday Parties as a fun treat recipe.

Holiday Baking

When it comes to holiday baking and making treats I’ve got many ideas for you. I love making a variety of fun cookies, candies and treats to make a cookie box or tin and delivering to neighbors. A friend of mine suggested to focus on no-bake recipes as they will last longer as you prepare other tasty treats.

Rice Krispies Cereal vs Generic Brand ~ I have found that most generic brands work just fine in this recipe.  The only downfall I have found is the rice puff cereal can break down easily which makes it difficult to stir ingredients together without breaking and crushing the cereal.  
I prefer to butter or spray pan before placing Rice Krispie Mixture.  It helps prevent sticking
Store Covered or wrap individually to keep freshness
