Who doesn’t love Rice Krispie Treats? I know I do. As soon as I saw the pre-made, ready to decorate pack of treat sheets at Party City… I knew I had to add festive rice Krispie Treats to my Easter dinner menu. These festive rice Krispie Treats are simple to make and taste delicious!
Festive Rice Krispie Treats
I’ll be honest; I struggle to make Rice Krispie Treats from scratch. My treats never mold together and often turn to sludge! My post on Frankenberry Monster Treats explains my issues! Instead of making the treats from scratch this holiday, I opted to purchase the pre-made treat sheet. Purchasing the pre-made treat sheet ensured that my treats would be perfect!
The first step in making these treats was the hardest! I had not anticipated how difficult cutting the treats out of the sheet would be! The process was not pretty but did work. After each cut, I opted to wash the cookie cutters in hot water and dry them between uses. Following this process simplified the cutting process and helped ensure perfectly formed shapes.
The next step in the process was to melt the chocolate. I melted half the chocolate from the bag in 30-second increments until the chocolate was smooth. Once the chocolate was melted, I dipped each treat in the chocolate and placed it onto wax paper to dry. While the treats were drying, I lightly spread sprinkles on top of the treats. I let the treats dry/harden for 2 hours and then set them on a display tray to serve.
The treats turned out great! I love how colorful and festive they are, and they are sure to be a hit this Sunday! This dessert could easily be made with the help of children.
