Rudolph The Red Nose Reindeer Krispie Treats

Part of our holiday fun every year is watching Christmas movies on TV. I love making special treats for our little viewing parties. For Rudolph I made some Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer Krispie Treats. While I'm not a food blogger, I do love all kinds of crafting, and sometimes that crafting occurs with food...I even used paper straws from my paper crafting stash for this project!

I only wanted a small batch (1 serving per person, no leftovers!) so I made a small batch of Krispie treats (the batch makes 4 total).
8 x 8 Pan of Krispie Treats
1 Tbs Butter
2 1/2 Cups Mini Marshmallows
3 Cups Rice Krispies Cereal

Melt the butter and marshmallows in pan over medium heat. Add rice krispies and mix until combined. Press into a greased 8 x 8 pan.

 While the bars are still warm, pop them out of the pan and cut them. I cut mine in half (shown above) and then in half again (shown below). After cutting them into 4 pieces, I shaped them a bit more to make them a little more rounded at the bottom and pressed on the top to make "ears". Then I inserted a paper straw.

To decorate these, all I used was some chocolate. Melt about 1/2 cup chocolate chips and 1tsp Crisco. Pipe the chocolate on to create the antlers and eyes. Use some as well to stick a red M & M on for Rudolph's nose.

My kids loved these, and I hope you do too! I'd love to hear about your favorite Christmas movies and what you do when you watch them.
