Christmas is a time we should all be enjoying together, making memories and having fun. Today I am bringing you a tutorial for these super easy and fun Rice Krispie Cone Christmas Trees! I first made these when I was a kid, and I remember how much joy I got out of creating something so cute, so I knew I wanted to do a little video for you all! Why not have a cosy afternoon with a hot chocolate and some Christmas music on while you make these!
I chose to decorate my little trees with some sugar stars I found at my local grocery store, but you could go nuts with any kind of decorations. Equip yourself with a squeezy tube of icing (this is definitely not a make your own kind of recipe!) and get some bowls full of candies and have fun! As you can see from the video above, the dusting of icing sugar at the end transforms the trees into a snowy winter wonderland. It reminds me of what the Black Forest in Germany looks like in the winter!

Rice Krispie Cone Christmas Trees
3 Ingredients is all that’s needed for these cute little Christmas Trees
200g Vegan White Chocolate, (can substitute for dark chocolate)
200g Rice Krispies,
Green Oil based or powdered Food Colouring (Do not use water based food colouring).
Parchment Paper cut into semi-circles,
White Icing in a tube for decorating,
Various Sprinkles for decorating,
Icing Sugar for dusting.
1. Roll the parchment paper semi circles into cones by using the middle of the flat side to create the point. Fasten with sticky tape. Full demonstration in the video above.
2. Melt the white chocolate and add green gel food colouring until you have the colour you desire. Add the rice krispies and mix until they are evenly coated.
3. Spoon the mixture into the cones, pressing down with the back of a spoon as you go to make sure it is as compacted as possible. Stand the filled cones point side down in a glass to hold them, and refrigerate for 1 hour.
4. Once refrigerated, peel off the parchment paper to reveal your beautiful Christmas Tree! Decorate however you like. I used a squeezy tube of white icing to stick on some stars, but you can really use any kind of decoration you want, or leave them plain. It’s totally your creative project!
