Reindeer Rice Krispie Treats Ingredients

To make these fun treats you only need a few simple ingredients that are probably already in your pantry.

How to Make

If you are familiar with making crispy treats, this is the same procedure.

Spray a 9” cake pan with cooking spray and set aside.

In a large pot, melt the butter over medium heat.

Add the marshmallows and stir to coat with butter. Continue stirring until all marshmallows have completely melted. Remove pot from heat and pour in the crispy rice cereal. Stir cereal into marshmallow mixture until fully incorporated

Transfer the mixture to the prepared cake pan and press to flatten it into an even layer. Allow the Rice Krispie treats to cool completely.

Once cooled, gently run a butter knife around the edge of the pan. Lay a large cutting board or platter on top and flip the cake pan over – carefully transferring the treats.

Use a large sharp knife to slice into 8 even servings.

Melt the white chocolate according to package directions. You are going to use it as a type of glue to adhere to the decorations.

  • Spread a small amount on the back of chocolate covered pretzels and press two onto each treat for the antlers.
  • Add white chocolate to the back of candy eyes and press two onto each treat.
  • Do the same to add an m&m nose to complete each reindeer rice krispie treat.

Enjoy!

Gluten Free

To make these treats gluten free you just need to make a couple of substitutions.

Use gluten-free chocolate-covered pretzels and use a gluten-free rice cereal. If you have an Aldi nearby they have an affordable rice cereal that is gluten-free.
