Rice Christmas Tree

I wasn't sure whether to put this one in the recipe section or in the craft section. So if you consider this a recipe well, you're right, but I used this as a craft at my daughters Christmas/Birthday party and it was a real hit.



  1. Melt margarine in a 3 qt. saucepan.
  2. Add 4 cups marshmallows and cook over low heat stirring constantly till syrupy.
  3. Remove from heat, add green food coloring till a fairly dark green color.
  4. Add cereal and stir until well coated.
  5. Shape into conical forms with buttered hands (kid LOVE to do this part, but make sure the mixture is not too hot)
  6. When cooled, stick a toothpick through a marshmallow and stick into the bottom to serve as the tree's base. (optional)
  7. Decorate with colorful candies.
  8. One note don't expect the tree to be beautiful when children are making them. Usually they are on their way to being eaten on the spot!
