Kellogg’s Rice Krispies Holiday Treat Recipes

Rice Krispies treats are really simple to make. The one thing that is great about home-made Rice Krispies is that you can mold and cut them out into any holiday shape you prefer. Spread on some store-bought icing and a few candies and sprinkles and you have a quick, simple and delicious holiday treat. Below are two recipes compliments of Rice Krispies website.
