Christmas Rice Krispie Truffles are a fun spin on the kid-approved treat. Rice Krispie treats made with holiday Rice Krispie cereal are rolled into truffles, dipped in white almond bark, and decorated with holiday sprinkles.
I love finding treats to make with my kids this time of year. Sure, it gets a little messy but I tell myself the mess is worth the memories made. When I spotted holiday colored Rice Krispie cereal at the store, I immediately had plans to make Rice Krispie treats with them. Originally I was thinking normal Rice Krispie treats, but somehow I came up with the idea of Christmas Rice Krispie Truffles.
I'm really glad the idea popped in my head because these were super fun to make!

How to Make Christmas Rice Krispie Truffles
Start by making a pretty typical rice krispie treat mixture. I use a higher butter to marshmallow ratio than the recipe on the box, which helps keep these soft and not turn super hard.
The rice krispie treat mixture is then rolled into truffles - you can really determine what size of truffles you want. Mine were about 2 tablespoons-sized.
Next, you'll melt the almond bark (or you can use white chocolate) in a bowl, and dip the truffles in the melted almond bark.
Working quickly before the almond bark sets up, you and the kids will decorate the truffles with festive sprinkles.
That's it! Let them dry completely and then dig in!
Turned out very cute and pretty and perfect for Christmas. They are a little tedious rolling them into balls then dipping them..just make sure you aren't in a hurry if you are making them. It makes a lot which is great so you don’t have to double it. Just a tip when rolling them into balls to put vegetable oil on your hands after rolling each ball as the mixture will stick to you and not roll into balls like they should. I used a cookie scooper as recommended. Worked perfect!
