Rice Krispie Treat Christmas Lights!



Rice Krispie Treat Christmas Lights


Whenever I think of hanging Christmas lights,
my thoughts always turn to Chevy Chase
and National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation.

Hilarious. 

Cousin Eddie....we all love Cousin Eddie.

To honor the annual tradition that is watching
this side splitting, hilarious folly, I decided to 
make some Rice Krispie Christmas Lights. 







I was inspired by an idea seen HERE!

You can either shape your own lights or I used
a Wilton Christmas light candy mold I bought earlier 
this season. The how-to is super simple; just make your
marshie treats the usual way and split the melted marshie 
mixture into separate bowls and add food coloring to make
the different colored lights. Add your krispies and 
then mold into a sassy Christmas light shape!




I used a tootsie roll softened in the microwave for a few seconds and shaped around the bottom for the base of the light.




And last but not least...string up your lights with
a little help from some Twizzlers. YUM!

to support St Jude Children's Research Hospital this 
Holiday Season, please check it out and enter - CLICK HERE!


I am joining a new linky party this week with
Mrs Fox's Wednesday Sweet Party

Christmas Vacation is one of my daughter's favourite Christmas movies and her two little girls and their cousin would love these little lights! Their Nana (me) would enjoy them too and she loves your platter they are displayed on :)

Love these! Just posted a link on Edible Crafts. I always think of the sparking outlet on A Christmas Story.

Oh my gosh, wouldn't these be adorable on a holiday buffet? These have Isabelle's two favorite food groups: marshmallows and tootsie rolls!

Beth said...

those are awesome!!! and we love that movie too! definitely a family tradition!

Lavender Cottage said...

Trisha, these are so cute! I was wondering what the bottom of the lights were but didn't really care since I know chocolate when I see it. LOL
If I were to even make rice krispie squares, I'd have to eat them all since hubby doesn't like them - I'll just enjoy yours and think of the calories I'm saving.
