"One of our favorite things to do during the holiday season is decorate sugar cookies. It seems like everywhere we go during November and December we're decorating cookies. It IS a lot of fun - for sure, but you know what else is fun? Decorating sleds!"

Ingredients:

  • For Crispy Rice Cereal Treats
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 4 cups miniature marshmallows
  • 6 cups crispy rice cereal
  • 1.65 oz box WONKA® Frosty NERDS® (approx. 1/4 cup)
  • For Sleds:
  • 1 tub store bought vanilla frosting
  • Assorted WONKA® Candy Canes
  • Assorted WONKA® Holiday Candies to decorate

Directions:

Step 1. Melt butter in a large saucepan over low heat. Add the marshmallows and stir until melted. Remove from heat and stir in cereal. Pour into a greased 9x13 baking dish. Sprinkle Nerds® on top.

Step 2. Use a piece of wax paper to press into baking dish. Let cool.

Step 3. Cut into rectangles approximately 4 inches x 2 inches. You should be able to get 12 rectangles total.

Step 4. Place frosting into a plastic bag and cut off the corner on one side. Make a bead of frosting along the top of two candy canes and place crispy rice cereal treat on top. Let set for 30 minutes or until it hardens. OR, don't wait and just be careful as you move forward with the next steps. It would also be a good idea to have an adult do this part in advance and leave the decorating to the kids.

Step 5. At this point it should look like a sled with the candy cane "runners" on the bottom. At this point it's ready to decorate.

Step 6. Use the frosting to "glue" the candies to the sled. To have Santa drive the sleds, the Nestlé®Chocolate Medallions work perfectly! Just get creative and have fun.
