The week before Christmas my kids and I love to hang out in the kitchen and make Christmas treats. Rice Krispies treats are always fun because they are quick and easy to make and you can make them into so many fun shapes to celebrate any holiday. We made some fun Gingerbread Men with Kellogg’s Cocoa Krispies. This week at Target you can choose a Kraft Jet-Puffed Marshmallows 10 oz item FREE when you buy 2 select Kellogg’s Rice Krispies, Crispix or Corn Flakes cereal items. This offer is valid through 12/23/17.
Here is what you need to make some fun Gingerbread Men of your own:
Cocoa Krispies Gingerbread Men:
- 6 cups of Kellogg’s Cocoa Krispies cereal
- 3 TBSP butter
- 5 cups Kraft Jet-Puffed mini marshmallows
- package of ready made icing
- gingerbread man cookie cutter
- mini chocolate candies
- 1 fruit leather (I used red)
Make the Kellogg’s Rice Krispies treats using Cocoa Krispies as directed on box or the Kellogg’s website. I personally love using the microwave method, because it is super easy and saves you some time so you can get straight to the to the fun stuff, like decorating and eating. You simply add marshmallows and butter into a bowl and microwave for 1 minute, stir and microwave for another minute. Remove from microwave and stir until marshmallows are smooth. Add Kellogg’s Cocoa Krispies and mix until the cereal is evenly coated with the marshmallows.
Once the cereal and marshmallows are combined add the Cocoa Krispies treats into a 13×9 inch pan lined with parchment paper or sprayed with cooking spray. Press firmly into pan and let them cool for 30 minutes.
Next, use a gingerbread man cookie cutter and press into the pan of Cocoa Krispies. You should be able to make about 8-10 gingerbread men depending on the size of your cookie cutter. You can eat all the leftover pieces too (the kids love this part).
Your next step is to decorate your gingerbread men with frosting, making the squiggly lines on their arms and legs. Also use the frosting for the eyes and mouth. Use fruit leather to make the scarf and mini chocolate candies for the buttons.
Don’t forget, through 12/23, you will receive a FREE bag of Kraft Jet-Puffed Marshmallows when you buy 2 select Kellogg’s Rice Krispies, Crispix or Corn Flakes cereal items at Target.
