Let’s bring back the nostalgia with some rice cereal treats! You can cut or form them into any shape. Don’t forget about the decorations 🤩 Ready?! Let’s do this!

It is a sticky mess, but I promise the results are well worth it!

I use wax paper to push down the rice cereal mixture.

The wax paper is easier to pull off the sticky marshmallow mixture. Now let it cool completely before flipping it over and cutting or using cookie cutters.

To make the treats even flatter, I use a metal bowl with a flat bottom. What is even better is the bowl served a dual purpose.

I turn the cooled treats over onto wax cut this into squares or use cookie cutters.

It is a little hard to push down the cookie cutter with your hands. It is way easier to use the bottom of a metal bowl.

I dipped bottom half of the in candy melts, let them cool on wax paper, then poured it and smoothed it on top.

It is very easy to drizzle the candy melts across the rice cereal treat and add sprinkles to them.

Depending on how you want to cover these rice cereal treats, the possibilities are endless! These came out so cute and they taste amazing!
