Ingredients

  • 3 tbsp butter (unsalted)
  • 10 oz. bag of mini marshmallows
  • 6 cups gluten free crisp rice cereal
  • green food coloring
  • 3 tbsp sprinkles
  • 18 mini peanut butter cups
  • 3-4 tbsp. frosting (for adhesive (I used a can of Duncan Hines - look to see if it's gluten-free.. mine was!))

Instructions

  • In a large pot, melt the butter over low to medium-low heat.
  • Add in the marshmallows and mix until combined.
  • Add in a few drops of green food coloring and mix until you get the desired color. You may want to use a combination of blues, greens, and yellows to achieve the right color.
  • Pour in the rice cereal. Mix until combined.
  • Take the pot off the heat. Let cool for a few minutes as it will be easier to work with.
  • Take 1/3 cup of the rice krispies and with your hands form into a cone shape. Place on a piece of parchment paper and with your finger dab a few sprinkles in key areas to make it look like ornaments.
  • Leave to dry and repeat with remaining rice krispies until you have about 18 trees.
  • Once the trees are a little harder take a peanut butter cup and attach it to the cone shape with the frosting.
  • Let dry for awhile and then place in tupperware or cover with plastic wrap so they don't dry out.
