Making Rice Krispie Christmas Trees
When you are shaping your Christmas trees you do not have to worry about them all being the same size. I love the look of different size trees. If your hands get a little sticky all you have to do is wet them a little with water and you can keep on shaping your Christmas trees.
Decorating Christmas Tree Rice Krispie Treats
There are a two different ways to get the Christmas tree decorations to stick on these Christmas Rice Krispie treats. Use whichever way works best for you.
The first way is using corn syrup. Put a little dot of corn syrup on the back of the decoration and then stick it on the rice krispie tree.
The second way is to use homemade frosting and put a small dot of it using a piping bag on the candies you are using to decorate them with. I personally use either chocolate buttercream or vanilla buttercream when I am using frosting.
You can also decorate the rice krispie with lines of buttercream to look like garland on the tree and stick the candy pieces on it to hold the decorations in place.
