During  my brainstorming for fun Christmas food ideas, I came across a picture of a stocking stuffed with fun goodies. I thought that it would make a cute fun food. My kids couldn’t have agreed more!  So here it is…A Christmas Stocking Rice Krispies Treat stuffed with candy canes and finished off with a simple fruit roll up bow. Gee…I wonder what the excitement from the kids was all about?!

I’m always thinking of ways to make my stuff even easier. So, I got to thinkin’ – If you wanted to make this super simple, and still super cute…you could skip the candy canes and still have a stocking with icing and a bow on top. Still  adorable either way. 🙂 

Here’s my “how to” on the stocking with candy canes. 

For this Christmas Stocking Rice Krispies Treat, You’re Gonna Need: Yields about 6-8 Stockings
  • 6 cups of  Crispy Rice Cereal 
  • 4 cups of fresh mini marshmallows
  • 3 Tbsp. butter
  • Green Dye – about 1/2 tsp. gel
  • Mini Candy Canes
  • Frosting – Vanilla

  • Make your rice krispies by melting the butter in a medium saucepan over med-high heat
  • Stir in the marshmallow and the food coloring, and stir until melted
  • Add the cereal and stir, and stir some more
  • Grab your pan, and place a sheet of wax paper inside, spray the wax paper with a little oil
  • Spoon your rice krispy mixture in to the pan and spread out – roll it out with a small rolling pin if you can’t get the top flattened 
  • Let it cool off for a few minutes
  • Pull the wax paper and cereal spread out, and begin cutting the treats with your cookie cutter

  • Place your candy canes in the middle of the stocking like the image above – you can criss-cross 2 or just use 1
  • Take another stocking and match it up to the one with the candy can on top
  • Press the stockings together, pushing the cereal around the candy cane

Storing:

The marshmallow and the fruit roll up tends to harden at a remarkable pace! Be sure to cover these fun treats in an air tight container for storage. You can probably get away with making these up to a few days in advance. 

  • Happy Holidays!
