Earlier this month Rice Krispies and The Motherhood contacted me about participating in another Rice Krispie Treat Recipe Box Challenge with the goal of creating a Rice Krispies Treats™ Holiday Table Show-Stopper.  (See my winning recipe from the July 4th Rice Krispies Treats Recipe Box Challenge here.) I am very impressed with the other entries that I’ve seen which you can view here.  You will find a complete list of all 30 participating bloggers at the bottom of this post.  Judges will choose and announce the winner of this Rice Krispies Treats Recipe Box Challenge December 21st, so check back here to find out who won!

Below is a photograph of all of the ingredients and supplies I bought for my Rice Krispies Treats recipe, not knowing what I was going to make at the time.  The funny thing is.. my final Rice Krispies Treats™ Holiday Table Show-Stopper recipe doesn’t include ANY of the ingredients in the photograph below, except Rice Krispies and marshmallows… oh, and icing.

I love your mis-matched dudes! So adorable and fun!

My favorite Rice Krispie Treat recipe is my mom’s – traditional with green food coloring and red cinnamon dots.


Betty C December 21, 2010 at 1:43 pm

What a cute idea. My favorite is still the traditional treat with little things added such as chocolate chips or M&Ms.


Michelle B. December 21, 2010 at 10:07 am

These are too cute! I love that they’re separate pieces to be mixed & matched!


Mami2jcn December 21, 2010 at 9:42 am

Wonderful creations!


Susan E. December 20, 2010 at 6:25 pm

I love your gingerbread men, they are so cute and what a lot of fun! My favorite rice krispies treats are the ones made with chocolate and peanut butter.

Tamara December 20, 2010 at 6:04 pm

They are so cute! What a really fun idea!


Milcah December 20, 2010 at 5:21 pm

I think that kids will have fun with these for sure! They get to play with something they want to eat :)


Nicole-Lynn December 20, 2010 at 4:19 pm

Very nice! I love your mis matched krispy treats! They are too cute. They look like little men, and would be cute to bake for Father’s Day or something too :)

My favorite rice krispies treat is their original rice krispy treat recipe. Every now and then I like to drizzle some chocolate on top. It’s so easy to make and great to give to family and friends for all occasions.

Winning this would be so wonderful. Not only would I bake some yummy Rice Krispy treats, but since my fiance and I are saving for our upcoming wedding this gift card would sure be a big help. Thank you for the opportunity!



Tawnya Sather December 19, 2010 at 11:03 pm

They are adorable! I think the kids will love them! I like plain old rice krispie treat squares, but sometimes it is fun to mix it up!


Amber Gi December 19, 2010 at 10:51 pm

so cute! hopping these blogs is making me hungry!

Donna B. December 19, 2010 at 7:06 pm

Reminds me of paper dolls :) it’s cute!


Mari December 19, 2010 at 5:16 pm

This is a really cute idea that kids would love. I imagine the children in my home would have such a fun time mixing and matching “outfits”.


Natalie J. Vandenberghe December 19, 2010 at 5:16 pm

I think your Mismatched Rice Krispies Treats Gingerbread Men are adorable! I’ve been making Rice Krispie Marshmallow Treats for more than 40 years. I’ve tried many variations, including ones with peanut butter, chocolate, or caramel (three of my favorite foods); however, my favorite recipe is the original :)
In fact, I think I’ll go make some now.
Thanks for the giveaway.


Laura C December 19, 2010 at 3:23 am

I think they look cute .


Cindy December 19, 2010 at 3:15 am

What fun for the kids to match! I like rice krispie treats drizzled with chocolate.


ACMommy December 18, 2010 at 10:19 pm

I love your recipe idea! I think children especially will enjoy putting together their own special treat, the mix & match idea is awesome! :-) And one of my favorite ways is to just make the original recipe, but shape into fun shapes — I’ll have to try your idea!


Anne December 18, 2010 at 10:05 pm

Wow, they are cute. We aren’t very creative, and we usually just make the basic ones, although sometimes we put sprinkles on top.


Julie S December 18, 2010 at 9:37 pm

My favorite recipe with Rice Krispies is Scotcheroos, but i LOVE those mismatched gingerbread men!! Definitely need to make those this year :)


won December 18, 2010 at 6:53 pm

Those are so very cute! They are unique and don’t look too intimidating to try to make. Just my style.

Thank you.


Sandy Jordan December 18, 2010 at 10:43 am

I like your idea and I like my rice krispies with chocolate chips!


Carol W. December 17, 2010 at 10:50 pm

The mismatched gingerbread men are terrific. The kids can “play” with their food before eating!


Jacob LaFountaine December 17, 2010 at 5:55 pm

I’d have to go with the best being off the Kellogg’s Rice Krispies box. I’d tried various other rice cereal and toppings but always go back to the original.


Charity S. December 17, 2010 at 5:32 pm

I really like the Mismatched Rice Krispies Treats. It’s something I would love to try.


SaraJC December 17, 2010 at 4:05 pm

What a fun idea! The Mismatched Rice Krispies Treats Gingerbread Men are just the cutest thing to make. This would be fun for kids because it gives them the opportunity to dress their own little gingerbread man. I’ll definately be making these for my daughter and her little guests.
