Rice Krispies Christmas wreaths are an easy, fun festive dessert that’s perfect for the holiday season and always a hit at parties!
Hi friends! Are you all full on in the holiday spirit? I sure am after this weekend!
M and I had our mommy-daughter date at the Nutcracker and it was so fun to see her experience it. She loved watching the ballerinas and did a great job making it through her first major performance. (Granted, Act 2 was spent sitting on my lap but that was kinda sweet too!) She did ask a few minutes into the show, “Why aren’t they talking?” 😊
And she had her first dance recital yesterday. She’d just done a little ballet-tap class this fall but they had a show at a theater uptown. She did one song with her class and it was adorable! She was so focused on the teacher and making sure she was doing the right moves. And can I just say, girl has some groove in her!
I also made my gingerbread house at the party with my girl friends Saturday night. We had lots of laughs, lots of good eats and lots of alcohol. Fun times 🙂
And tonight is the holiday dinner and Santa visit at J’s preschool, so we are ALL kinds of in the middle of Christmas fun!
Speaking of Christmas fun, these Rice Krispies Christmas wreaths are pretty much the most fun ever.
Granted, they are not my usual healthier dessert. And they just may be the only recipe you see from me on this blog that uses food coloring. Our food coloring is used for sidewalk chalk paint, not for eating.
Still, this is a classic family recipe and the holidays just wouldn’t be the same without them. (Kinda like my grandmother’s 4-ingredient chocolate chip brownies.)
My mom and I do a big baking day each year where we get together and make all of our favorite holiday desserts – and usually a new one we want to try – and these are on the “MUST HAVE” list every year.
They are always one of the first things to get eaten up and they’re a huge hit at cookie exchanges and Christmas parties.
And they are how my mom found out I was pregnant with J….
