Rice Christmas Trees



  • 5 cups rice krispies
  • 1/4 cup margarine or butter
  • 4 cups mini-marshmallows or 6-10 oz. bag of regular marshmallows
  • 10 - 12 regular size marshmallows and toothpicks
  • green food coloring
  • red cinnamon candies, smarties, or any other small colorful candies

Melt margarine in a 3 qt. saucepan, then add 4 cups marshmallows and cook over low heat stirring constantly till syrupy. Remove from heat, add green food coloring till a fairly dark green color. Add cereal and stir until well coated. Shape into conical forms with buttered hands (kid LOVE to do this part, but make sure the mixture is not too hot) When cooled, stick a toothpick through a marshmallow and stick into the bottom to serve as the tree's base. Decorate with colorful candies.
