We just spent a fun afternoon building snowmen using our favorite Kellogg’s® Rice Krispies® treat recipe and it is sure to become one of our newest holiday traditions.
Traditional Kellogg’s® Rice Krispies® Treats has always been an easy and delicious treat for our family. It's an easy three-step recipe that is one of our go-to recipes and we love to look for variations of this family snack.
These Kellogg’s® Rice Krispies® Treats Snowmen take the traditional recipe and turn them into a fun craft that are not only edible but delicious! This is sure to become our new favorite family tradition from a much-loved treat.
These adorable little snowmen with their bright colored scarves, stovepipe hats, little round eyes, and big smiles are an easy project for a cold snowy afternoon with the children.
It's fun to assemble everything on a table and let the fun begin. Depending on the ages of the children, they can assist in making all the snowballs, hats and scarves or if they are very young, an adult can have everything ready and the little ones can decorate their very own snowman.
Hats are made from dipping marshmallows into dipping chocolate and immediately placing them on a chocolate cookie.
Scarves can be quickly designed from fruit snacks, cut into lengths and sliced at the end to create fringe.
Then the "snowballs" are Kellogg’s® Rice Krispies® treats shaped into balls.
These guys are super cute and easy to assemble. The hat is attached using marshmallow cream and mini chocolate chips make great eyes, a mouth, and cute buttons.
This little guy's scarf is folded (just the part that touches his neck) and tied in the front in a sassy manner. He's finished off with pretzels for arms.
It's that time of the year that memories are made and last a lifetime. So many of our fondest memories from raising our children were centered around holiday recipes and crafts like this one!
Kellogg’s® Rice Krispies® can be found in the cereal section of your local Walmart in abundance and be sure to do what we did and grab the Family size so you will have plenty of these Rice Krispie Snowmen!
(To find a Walmart near you, visit their Walmart Store locator page)
We made a few of the snowmen with dried cranberries for lips (green scarf) and also used regular pretzels (blue scarf) for curved arms.
