Rice Krispy Treat Ornaments

 

***If the mixture is too sticky and not shaping easily, add a bit more cereal.

***Work quickly.  The sprinkles stick better when the ornaments are freshly molded.

***These ornaments make a beautiful edible centerpiece.  They would also be fun to hand out to guests as edible party favors.  Simply place each ornament in a decorated cellophane gift bag and tie it off.

  5. Christy Brossman says:

  6. I agree, I love to eat them right out of the pan before they cool! Yummmy!

  7. Love these!

    I like to eat them when they’re still warm. You know like out of the pot. Mmmmmm

  8. Those are very creative!

  9. My favorite way to eat Rice Krispie Treats is hot and gooey! But I also like them drizzled with chocolate! Yum!

  10. I like dark chocolate and peanut butter drizzled over the rice krispies top.

  11. I love adding a bit of peanut butter to make them extra yummy!

  12. I love them in awkward, kid-formed pieces. ;) (And you claim you’re not creative– LOVE this idea!)

    • I kid you not, I came up with these at 10:30 the night before I posted it. Lance says that is NOT good reinforcement for my procrastinating ways. ;)

  13. When I was in my early teens my brother brought home a Chinese exchange student. He was very nice and we all loved him, but he absolutely fell in love with Rice Krispies Treats. :) I remember him just standing in the kitchen watching me make them and then he would eat half the batch. Fun Memories.

  14. I have had Rice Krispie treats in a LONG time and these look so yummy I will have to make some with the girls today!

  15. Oh I love them warm with little mini-marshmallows in them!

  16. That should be I have NOT had them in a long time.

  17. I like them w/ peanut butter & chocolate chips mixed in. Yum!

  18. Adorable! Great activity for this snow/ice day we are having here in central Kentucky!

  19. There’s nothing like Rice Krispies Treats right out of kettle. I don’t even let them set in the pan :P

  20. Amy Fleeker says:

    I love adding peanut butter to the recipe and then melt semi sweet chocolate chips to pour over the finished product.

  21. Deena Ellington says:

    Love making a fresh batch and then sitting by a fire with the family and watching a great Christmas movie like Elf..

  22. I like to eat them drizzled with chocolate

  23. I like to pick pieces out of the pan while it’s still warm :)

  24. Favorite way to eat Rice Krispie Treats…with my kids!! Much funner :)
    Great ornaments!!

  25. Absolute best Rice Krispie treat recipe involves spreading them, mixed with chocolate and peanut butter, over brownies. It’s crunchy, gooey, chocolatey, marshmallowy – definitely a kid (and adult) favorite!

  26. What a cute idea? Love it!!

    My new favorite way to eat Rice Krispie’s is this recipe: http://amysfinerthings.com/rice-krispy-roll We make it with Peanut Butter chips instead of butterscotch – heavenly!

  27. Oh–I LOVE them made with peanut butter, and then sprinkled with mini chocolate chips after they’re in the pan. And eat them while they’re still warm. Delish.

  28. I love the original. Plain and simple.

  29. In any form that includes peanut butter.

  30. I love topping them with chocolate chips while they’re warm and then spreading the chocolate once it melts, like a frosting. SOOOO yum!

    Those rice krispy ornaments are too freakin’ cute!

  31. Lisa in SC says:

    I just like them the old fashioned no-frills way

  32. So cute! I must admit that half of my rice krispie treats never make it to the pan — I love to eat them right out of the bowl.

  33. I like the individual packages – that way I won’t eat half a pan. ;)

  34. Too cute! I love them just by themselves – straight out of the oven! Thanks for the chance!
    Kelly D. ~ dkad23(at)gmail(dot)com

  35. There’s not a way I don’t like them, really. the best though is when you happen on a random bake sale and get one that’s nice and yummy – a nice surprise!

  36. I like them as cereal!

  37. Nothing beats the origional Rice Krispie Treat! One can never eat enough!:)

  38. I like to eat them one, right after another…

  39. I like to eat original rice krispies treats, just as they are!

  40. I’m not very creative when it comes to RKT, but covered in chocolate is my preferred way!

  41. Oh my goodness, that is SUCH a cute idea! I love it! And how perfect as a giveaway or for a kids party! I love to eat rice crispy treats covered in chocolate. :-)

  42. Wow! This is so imaginative! Pretty, AND yummy! Great job!

  43. So cute Amy!! Seriously – before the all the RK bloggers I thought the only thing you could make was square bars:) But now I’m thinking a creative way is a lot more fun:)

  44. My favorite way to eat rice crispies treats is one in each hand!

  45. I have to admit that I’ve only had them the original way and I love them! Now I’m going to have to try these!

  46. Sarah Nutter says:

    i love s’mores rice krispy treats!

  47. Yum , with chocolate over top is my favorite way

  48. Haven’t tried a lot of variations of this yummy treat. We usually just love them warm out of the pan.

  49. Straight out of the pan!

  50. Peanut butter krispy treats. Ya’ll know the marshmallow treats only with peanut butter added.

  51. love to eat them warm from the pan!

  52. I like to eat them warm!

  53. april yedinak says:

    I like regular treats, but the way my mom makes them. She follows the recipe, but for whatever reason, hers come out so much better than anyone else’s!
    ape2016(at)aol(dot)com

  54. I love these treats!

  55. I love to eat them while they are still warm and gooey. Another favorite way to eat them is with chocolate frosting and sprinkles covering them.

  56. My favorite way to eat them is right out of the pot on the stove like a stray hungry animal. Ahhh, bliss!

  57. I just eat them normal, but I’m going to start adding things!

  58. I love the scotch-o-roo version. Peanut butter mixed with the cereal & marshmellow with a generous layer of chocolate melted on top.

  59. Those are so cute! Admittedly, I don’t think I’ve ever had any kind of homemade rice krispies treats aside from the standard ones. Those are pretty good, though!

  60. Lydia Kleit says:

    I like Rice Krispies Treats made with all ingredients incredibly fresh (like fresh butter from a local dairy) and pressed into a 9″ x 13″ pan but the VERY BEST part is eating the little bits and pieces left in the pot while they are still warm, covered in buttery marshmallowy goodness.

  61. AllieZirkle says:

    plain and simple in traditional RK treats. Yum!

  62. I like to eat them warm, with chunky peanut butter dabbed on top

  63. Love them original and still warm, but I also love them with mini-chocolate chips and peanut butter in them.

  64. I always have trouble molding them into different shapes so I’ve just taken to adding a food coloring to dye them a color to match the holiday (orange for Halloween, red or green for Christmas). Boring but the kids get a kick out of them! :)

  65. Best way to eat them is warm :)

  66. My favorite – the old-fashioned original way. So good!

  67. I add extra-extra butter and smoked sea salt to mine . Oh my ganache!
    evrywoman@yahoo.com

  68. Gotta love rice crispies eaten out of a bowl of vanilla almond milk. Yum.

  69. They are best made thick and rich! Oh, the best thing ever created!

  70. I like to eat them with M&Ms mixed in. Not warm out of the oven, but just after they’ve cooled off in the refrigerator a little, so that they they’re not hot, but still bendy.

  71. I love to eat colored rice crispies treats…they seem more magical that way :)

  72. VERY creative! I love them!

    My favorite way to eat rice krispie treats is with nuts and hersheys syrup.

  73. Hi Amy! I just got your email and I did respond right away to yours…guess it did go to spam. Thanks for letting me know. I am going to email you again from my personal and business email address and hope you get it.

  74. Very cute. I like RKTs the only way I’ve ever had them – the “out of the pan” kind!

  75. I like to cut a row and eat that row only!

  76. I love to eat them with peanut butter and topped with chocolate… with my fingers and a glass of cold milk.
    andrea.kruse at gmail dot com

  77. I love this idea. I like with the plain with some festive sprinkles on them. You can make them “go with” any occasion or holiday. My go to receipe!

  78. I’m so glad I’m not the only one who eats them before they get to the pan! Sometimes they make it that far, but it’s my little guilty pleasure if they don’t! Thanks for the giveaway!

  79. I love them still warm and gooey with a little bit of melted chocolate drizzled over them!

  80. Anne Marie says:

    I love plain Jane rice krispie treats – just the original recipe – yummy

  81. These are soooo adorable! My favorite to eat? I’m simple–I just like the plain ole rice krispie treats fresh made and lukewarm in the pan!

  82. Summer Darbyshire says:

    I like them original, or, to make them special, I sometimes add chocolate chips.

  83. I’m so glad to hear that I’m not the only one who eats them hot and gooey out of the pan. I feel much better now :)

    Your ornaments look very cute and I agree that they would make great party favors.

  84. Favorite way to eat them? Any way that involves me eating them.

  85. I love scotcharoos- similar to your rolls, but in a bar form. Very yummy!

  86. I love this recipe! I love to eat them warm and out of the pan too!

  87. Debbie Houk says:

    Mixed with Peanut Butter and Chocolate on top. The best!!

  88. I like them made with peanut butter and a chocolate frosting.

  89. I like the old fashioned bars!

  90. I love these. My favorite way to eat them is dipped in chocolate in the shape of Mickey’s ears at my favorite place in the whole world – Walt Disney World.

  91. With peanut butter added and chocolate on top!

  92. I love to eat rice krispies treats while they are still slightly sticky and warm – YUM! Thanks for the recipe — they look great!

  93. My favorite way to eat them is when they’re still warm in the pot.

    What a fun way to use Rice Krispies treats! I hope I can remember to do this next year!

  94. Bethany Jones says:

    I love “licking the spoon” :)

  95. Becky kozlowski says:

    In the bowl they were made in, with a spoon!

  96. Every Valentine’s Day, I make rice crispy kisses! I shape them like the chocolate Hershey kisses and put aluminum foil around it with a white strip hanging out at the top. I love unwrapping them and munching on them! Yummy!

  97. I find simple is best – original recipe, while still a bit warm!

  98. Slightly gooey is my favorite way to eat them!
    This is a lovely idea. Thanks!

  99. Sadly, other than the original way, the only thing I’ve ever done to a RKT is dye it green for St. Patrick’s Day or Orange for Halloween. I can’t wait to try chocolate chips ;)

  100. I love mixing 2/3 Rice Krispies with 1/3 Fruity (or Cocoa) Pebbles. It give extra flavor and sweetness! YUM!

  101. Karri Tarsha says:

    I think the Rice Krispy roll looks delicious… can’t wait to try it!

  102. I like them dipped in dark chocolate !! YUM!!

  103. I have never tried anything different with my rice krispie bars.. I love them still warm and falling apart :)

  104. These are beautiful!
    My favorite way to eat them is in a bar, topped with a generous coating of dark chocolate and chopped hazelnuts. I used to have these as a kid (30-40 years ago) and we did not know what a hazelnut was, they were called filberts before they became the ‘cool’ nut.

  105. What a wonderful idea, love it! I love making treats to share with family and friends. My favorite are probably the regular with chocolate on top or the Christmas Wreaths with Red Hots!

  106. I love to eat them right out of the bowl. I’ve done that for 34 years and Still enjoy every bit of it. I can see myself doing that at 90!!

  107. Favorite way: made into scotcheroos!

  108. Cute idea! I love the original treats, simple and warm! :o)

  109. Stefanie Boe says:

    so cute! I like them right out of the pan.. but I’m going to have to try this!

  110. A little dab of peanut butter makes the treats even better.
    Great giveaway!

  111. I like this idea for the holidays! My favorite is the original with a smidgen of mini chocolate chips sprinkled on top after they’re pressed into the dish.

  112. I like the good old traditional Rice Krispies treats. They are best right after they cool.

  113. Gina Kelley says:

    I love the original treats. It was always great when I found one wrapped up in my lunch box!

  114. Sommer Emery says:

    LOVE THESE! Adding to my baking list for the season!! Thank you!

  115. I love them out of the pan but we have been creative with these. They make great gingerbread houses and are wonderful with mini m&ms on the top

  116. I like the plain rice krispies treats, with peanut butter added. Warmer is easier to eat than cold.

  117. This is such a cute idea! We love to cut our rice Krispies out with cookie cutters.

  118. these are amazing! I just eat them out of the blue package from walmart. otherwise they seem to get stale so fast they aren’t worth making.

  119. I like RKTs best when they’re still warm and gooey right out of the pan.

  120. Straight out of the pot is always best! While still warm in the pan is a close second though!

  121. Thank God for this posting and reading over the comments. I have now found I have to stop being so boring and expand my world! I have only ever had the “traditional” rice Krispies treats so for now, that is my fav.

  122. Awesome idea! I have a bag of marchmallows – now all I need are the rice krispies :)

  123. I like Rice Krispies Treats with melted chocolate and chopped nuts.

  124. I like then straight from the pan before they’ve cooled and firmed up.

  136. I like a good old fashioned square rice krispie treat. Yum.

  143. What a darling idea!!

  144. I love warm Rice Krispie treats! I also like to add food coloring to the marshmallow mixture and then take cookie cutters to the bars instead of cutting them in squares :)

  145. This is a wonderful idea! Looks like something I will be doing with the kids for Christmas!

  146. What a great idea … I especially love the gifting idea!

    My fav Rice Krispies treats are peanut butter flavored. :)

  173. I’m going to have to say original treats just because I haven’t tried any of these cool adaptations yet. The Roll looks awesome!
