Today I’m sharing a fun festive holiday treat.  Reindeer Rice Krispies Treats.  I always thought it was Rice Krispie Treats, but I googled that shit and I’m wrong.  Rice Krispies Treats just sounds funny to me.  Right?!?!

Anyway this kid treat is super easy.  Bailey can make them all by herself, from start to finish.  I always make a demo for her to follow then she makes the rest.  I love having a kitchen helper!  I guess I should just call it a fun treat, not kid treat.  God knows I killed a couple of them too.  So good:)

Normally I’d be chatting about the Elf on the damn Shelf.  But, Holly (our Elf on the shelf) didn’t make her grand entrance this morning.  I’m so NOT ready for that little fucker.  I’m totally going to move her ass all over the house again this year though.  I keep reminding myself, there are only a handful of years left that Bailey is even going to believe:(  I’m going to suck it up and just make shit happen.  Holly will arrive tonight.  With Bay’s Christmas PJ’s that I’ve been waiting patiently for since I placed the Old Navy order on November 22nd.  Yes, you read that right…November 22nd.  That’s 10 days.  How can the Elf of the damn shelf show up with out Christmas PJ’s?

Honestly, Bailey didn’t even notice this morning.  She was too busy texting and making Muscially videos…LOL!

Ok, back to Reindeer Rice Krispies Treats…..

  • Candy eyeballs (Target + Amazon)
  • Red M&M’s
  • Chocolate candy melts

I found these handy-dandy Wilton Mini Squeeze Bottles.  I painfully melted my chocolate then filled the bottles (such a pain in the ass).  Afterwards, I realized you can actually heat the chocolate in the bottles….brillant!!

Here’s what you do:

Unwrap each Rice Krispies Treat.

Melt your chocolate (following package directions).  Using either the squeeze bottle above or a plastic bag with a tiny hole cut in the corner.  Pipe the chocolate antlers.

You can use a small dot of chocolate under the eyes and nose to adhere.  But, I found that they stuck pretty well just by pressing into the Rice Krispies Treat.  Your call!!

And there you have it.  Yummy, super cute holiday treat that EVERYONE will love 🙂  I think they’d be super cute wrapped in a celephane bag tied with ribbon.  Hmmm.  I may have to do that next!!

 

Bailey made these last night for our Annual Timothy Christmas Caroling at GG’s house tonight.  Remember I wrote a post all about it last year?  You can find it here {christmas caroling}.

I have all the printable song sheet that I used in our Timothy Caroling Books that you can print directly from the blog.  I pack them up with our Christmas Decor to reuse each year!
