Christmas Rice Krispies Treats

I love making festive, pretty treats during the holidays, but I also want to keep things simple. Inspired by my kid (who adores rice krispies treats and Airhead Xtreme candy), I created these "presents," which are a fun variation of regular rice krispies treats.

You can quickly whip these together to add flair to a Christmas cookie tray or dessert table, or give these as a gift to friends.

These would also be fun to make for a kids' school Christmas party.

Should I use homemade or store-bought rice krispies treats?

You can make these using homemade rice krispies treats, but if you want to make things even easier on yourself, opt for store bought variety. In fact, I prefer the store-bought kind because they're cut into absolutely perfect rectangles, perfect for wrapping candy bows around them!

Once you get the hang of creating the candy bow, these little present treats come together really fast. I've posted a video below on the bow making process, which will help you understand the steps.
