Dairy Free Rice Krispie Christmas Trees
Get your ingredients together.
Melt the chocolate. I do mine in the microwave, or you could do it over boiling water. Whichever option you go for, remember to keep stirring it so that you don't burn it!
Add your Rice Krispies to the bowl with your melted chocolate
Mix well with a wooden spoon until all of the Rice Krispies are covered.
Lay the mixture onto a tray covered with baking paper. Use the back of a spoon to spread out the mixture until it is even. I made mine about 2cm thick, as their only for a toddler. Though be careful if you make them too thin, as they break easier when cutting! Once even, use the side of a knife to straighten out the sides. Then pop it in the fridge for about 20 minutes.
After 20 minutes, take your mixture out of the fridge, and using a sharp knife, cut into triangles as per the picture. If you cut the piece length-ways first across the middle, you can then cut triangle segments both top and bottom.
Using your icing pens, draw on your decorations. If you have older children, you could use M&M's or mini smarties to create your baubles. But as mine are for a young toddler, I've used writing icing.
All done! Pop your creations in a covered tub the fridge, and enjoy!
Allergy Advice: This recipe is Dairy, Lactose and Egg Free.
Unfortunately it's not vegan due to the Rice Krispies containing Vitamin D and B2. However you could easily substitute these for a vegan friendly alternative. Same goes for a gluten-free version.
