  • 5 tablespoons salted butter
  • 1 10 ounce package marshmallows
  • 2 cups mini marshmallows
  • 6 cups Rice Krispies Cereal
  • 1 10 ounce package White Chocolate Melting Wafers I love Ghirardelli!
  • 1 cup red sanding sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded coconut
  • 24 candy eyes
  • 12 red hot candies
  1. Melt the butter in a large pot over medium heat.
  2. Stir in the large marshmallow. Cook until melted and smooth, stirring to combine with the butter.
  3. Add in the mini marshmallows and stir until almost melted (some small lumps may remain).
  4. Add the cereal in a large bowl. Pour the marshmallow over the cereal and stir to combine thoroughly.
  5. Transfer the mixture to a buttered 13x9 inch baking dish.
  6. Using a spatula coated with cooking spray, press the mixture into the dish to form an even, flat layer.
  7. Set aside to cool.
  8. Cut the Rice Krispie Treats into 12 rectangles and set aside.
  9. Melt the chocolate in a microwave dish at 30 second increments, stirring after each interval until smooth.
  10. Place the sanding sugar and shredded coconut each in separate bowls.
  11. Dip each end of the Rice Krispie Treat bar into the chocolate being careful to leave about 1 inch in the center uncoated. Dip one end of the treat bar half way into the sanding sugar and the other end into the coconut. Add more coconut to the edge of the red sanding sugar side to form the hat.
  12. Place the treat on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and allow to cool. Repeat with the remaining bars.
  13. To make the face, dip each eye in the melted chocolate and place on the bar. Dip one red hot into the chocolate and add to the bar for the nose.
  14. Allow the chocolate to harden before serving, approximately 30 minutes.
Recipe Notes

You can decorate your santas any way you like, feel free to add decorations to the hat or substitute the coconut for white sanding sugar.
