Christmas Tree Treats

Author Morgan


  • 4 tablespoons of butter 1/2 stick
  • 4 cups of mini marshmallows
  • 6 cups of krispie rice cereal
  • green food coloring
  • mini peanut butter cups
  • mini chocolate candies
  • tube of premade white icing


  1. In a large saucepan, melt butter on medium/low heat (be careful not to burn it!).
  2. Then add in marshmallows and wait for them to completely melt.
  3. Add in food coloring until desired green color is reached.
  4. Pour in krispie rice cereal and stir gently until evenly coated in marshmallow mixture.
  5. Remove from heat and let set for 3-5 minutes.
  6. Coat hands in cooking spray or butter (this is so that the marshmallow krispie mixture won't stick to them), take a handful of the krispies and shape into a cone. Mine turned out to be 4-5 inches tall and it made about 10 of them. Lay onto a lined cookie sheet and pop into the fridge after you've shaped all the cones.
  7. Once in the fridge for about 10 -20 minutes, take them out and they should be completely cold. Then you can decorate! I took a tube of icing and piped it into a swirl on each cone, added mini chocolate candies (I gently stuck them into the tree/icing completely on their own), and then sprinkled a few edible star decorations on the trees.
  8. Finally, carefully place your tree on top of a peanut butter cup and your edible Christmas trees are done!
  9. Then pour a glass of Chocolate TruMoo, heat it up and enjoy with your Krispie Treat Christmas Tree!
