Three Words to describe Rice Krispies Treats.. Sticky, Gooey and Delicious! What is better then all of that is you have a chance to win.. $100 GC to help make your own Rice Krispies Memories! But first let me let you enter my world of Rice Krispies and my Challenge of Stickiness of making my special Snowman for this recipe challenge. Here is how I did it… or tried atleast. ┬áRemember it was a sticky gooey situation. A little melty as well.. lol.

Rice Krispies (TM) Snowman
By Shannon Snow (hence the Snowman Idea)


3 Tablespoons of Real Butter
10 oz of Marshmallows
6 Cups of Rice Krispies (TM)
1/2 Cup of Peanut Butter
1 package of Almond Bark (white)
Other items needed.. Raisins, Chocolate cookie, pretzels for Snowman


Melt Butter and Marshmallows in Large Microwave safe bowl for about 2 to 3 minutes. Then Stir with a buttered cooking utensil. Mix in Rice Krispies (TM)

Cool in rectangle pan. Use Parchment paper if needed to press into pan to cool. When cool, cut into squares, and frost with peanut butter, put another square on top and form into circles.

While the treats cool, heat almond bark in pan until melted.

Dip round balls into almond bark. This is kind of messy, but it made the treats extra yummy, especially with the peanut butter surprises!

Make different shape balls, and then make the snowman. Add eyes, buttons, arms, and hat. I used raisins for eyes, nose and buttons, cookie for hat, and pretzels for arms. You can use your imagination. I cooled the snowman outside so it would cool faster.

With the extra treats, I made snowballs with peanut butter inside. I did not dip all of them. My sons ate the ones I had dipped before I could take a picture!

  • Jean D. December 14, 2010, 8:26 pm

    Besides baking, I think my kids’ favorite tradition is playing and singing Christmas carols at the piano. When I was a kid, my mother played, and I sang along. Now I play and my kids sing along. Somehow it makes the house feel wonderful.

    Thanks for a great giveaway!

  • amy December 14, 2010, 8:56 pm

  • Nancy Lancet December 14, 2010, 9:19 pm

    We take my granddaughter to see all the beautifully decorated houses, one is a place that used to be a funeral parlor so is huge, and they go all out with Disney characters, tons of moving, musical displays, really beautiful. A bit cold now to take her but hopefully next week will be a bit milder.

  • Megan December 14, 2010, 9:54 pm

    At my house we always got to open a present up on Christmas eve. Now we have a party on Christmas eve since we’re all grown up.

  • Some Lucky Dog December 14, 2010, 10:28 pm

    Our holiday baking tradition is Peanut Butter Kisses! The recipe I use for the cookie uses just peanut butter, eggs, and sugar…no flour. They are yummy!

    One of our family traditions is having a big Christmas breakfast after opening gifts on Christmas morning. I think it’s my favorite part of the day because I enjoy spending the time with my family before heading out to visit relatives. Thanks!

  • Sonia December 16, 2010, 5:50 am

    My favorite tradition is that we go out for dinner after church on Christmas Eve – since I have just exhausted myself with shopping and wrapping and will cook my heart out on Christmas day it’s so nice to be treated to dinner out! Thanks Mom for a great tradition!

  • Adrienne December 16, 2010, 10:13 pm

    Cute snowman — I love how he’s kind of melty…a typical occurrence in this state! One of our family traditions, passed down from my mother’s parents, is to bake fresh homemade nutbread on Christmas morning to eat while opening presents.

  • Aly Martinez December 17, 2010, 7:17 am

    My mom makes Monkey Bread every year on Christmas morning. I have made it since I have grown up and have my own family now, but it is NEVER as good as hers.

  • Kasey December 17, 2010, 9:17 am

    One of my favorite holiday traditions is going shopping the night before Christmas, when the mall is quieter but it’s still Cjristmasey, and there are all kinds of interesting people watching things to do.

  • Carol W. December 17, 2010, 7:16 pm

    We drive through various neighborhoods to enjoy the dazzling lights.

  • Kim December 18, 2010, 8:57 am

    We like to make hot chocolate and popcorn, then drive around different neighborhoods to look at all the decorations!

  • Anne December 18, 2010, 7:55 pm

    Every year for Christmas we make a bunch of fancy cookies, and everyone eats the chocolate chip cookies and rice krispie treats first. We still love to make lots of cookies though.

  • Cindy December 19, 2010, 1:52 am

    We have dinner at home, chat, play a few games on Christmas Eve and then go to Midnight Mass. Then we will have a gathering of all the family on Christmas day.

  • Mari December 19, 2010, 3:32 pm

  • Natalie J. Vandenberghe December 20, 2010, 12:08 am

    Our holiday traditions have more to do with music than with food–because we enjoy all sorts of wonderful goodies year long. The original Rice Krispies Treats recipe is one of my favorites. During the Christmas season, I enjoy going to a performance of Handel’s “Messiah” and the Trans-Siberian Orchestra Christmas show. Thanks for the giveaway.

    We always like some Christmas cookies and a good movie to watch.

  • Tamara December 20, 2010, 5:49 pm

    One of our traditions that we do before Christmas, is that we love to bake cookies. We like to make up several batches of different kinds and flavors so that we have plenty of cookies to last for a few days during Christmas.

  • Liz December 21, 2010, 3:50 am

    We have awesome cakes and pies every year–usually cheesecake and coconut cream pie–as well as a variety of special cookies!
