I love making these little Rice Krispies Treats Gifts for the holidays. But how come every time I make Rice Krispies Treats, they’re gone in like an hour? They’re just so light, crispy and full of irresistible-ness!
So this time I made two batches at once.
Besides, I wanted to support Kellogg’s in their #Treats4Toys holiday campaign. For every Rice Krispies treat photo shared on social (through Jan. 1, 2016), Kellogg’s will donate a gift to Toys for Tots to help bring a little extra joy to a child in need.
So share your own Rice Krispies Treats photos with the #Treats4Toys hashtag on Twitter or Instagram, and a gift will be donated!
So about those Rice Krispies Treats gifts… let’s make some!
To make the gifts, spread a mixture of marshmallow creme and cream cheese onto the top of a treat. Then stack another one on top of that. All that’s left is tie a pretty bow of licorice!
Because there is cream cheese in these, you’ll want to serve them right away. Leftovers can be refrigerated of course, but the licorice will get brittle and come untied. The treats themselves will still be scrumptious!
