Holiday Wreath Rice Krispies Treats

Thursday, December 3, 2020
Rice Krispie treats are so versatile to make into shapes and this wreath was the perfect idea for the kids to make it was so easy.

Using a springform pan and a glass, the treats cooled perfectly to look like a wreath and viola, we just have to give it some cherries for decoration.

We love to mold Rice Krispie treats into creative shapes and usually, we even make small little wreaths with the mixture during the holiday, this was so much easier all in one pan.

This makes such a perfect centerpiece on the Holiday tables with the pretty tinted green marshmallows.

If you need a fast and festive dessert to bring to a party, this is always loved by everyone.

Fun and Creative Ideas

I love to make some easy festive projects with the kids during the holidays and of course, Krispie treats are always the best choice because they are so moldable.

We love to bring these creative platters to parties or office functions so everyone can feel a little holiday cheer with this pretty edible centerpiece on the table.

This can be decorated any way you like, I left it simple and easy for the kids virtually there is no mess involved.

Just think of all the possibilities, snowman, stars, Christmas trees are just a few to shape for Christmas.

It's so much easier making one big wreath to cut in slices than mold each wreath separately that's why I love this idea!

Holiday Wreath Rice Krispies Treats

Prep time: 10 MinCook time: 10 MinTotal time: 20 Min
This is a really easy fun Christmas wreath made with the Rice Krispie treat recipe. The marshmallows are tinted green and decorated with red and green cherries around the ring.


  • 6 cups Rice Krispies cereal
  • 1 stick (1/2 cup) butter
  • 40 marshmallows
  • green food coloring
  • decorative sprinkles and red hot candies, candied or maraschino red and green cherries


  1. Prepare your springform pan by spraying it lightly with cooking oil.
  2. Note: If you have a flat angel food tube pan, that works fine also but you would have to cut to fit parchment paper first to get this to come out of your pan.
  3. Place a 12 to16 ounce glass in the center of the pan and set this aside.
  4. Melt the butter in a heavy-duty saucepan.
  5. Add the marshmallows and stir until melted.
  6. Stir in around 4 to 6 drops of food coloring (I am not fond of super green so make it as dark and bright as you like it.).
  7. Add the cereal and coat evenly using a spoon.
  8. Spread the cereal evenly around the glass.
  9. Let cool completely before removing the glass.
  10. Decorate the ring to look like a wreath with cherries.
  11. The ring will easily slide off the pan onto a plate or plastic cake carrier container for easy transporting.
