Arbor Day Tree Krispie Treats

This year, April 24th is Arbor Day. It’s a day where everyone is encouraged to plant a tree. While we have been updating our landscaping recently, trees are something we have an abundance of.

So instead of planting a real tree, the girls and I made some yummy tasting trees instead. They’re super easy to make and kids can make most of it themselves (minus the stovetop part for young kids). So grab a spoon and a bag of marshmallows and start making those trees!

  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 1 package (10 ounces) marshmallows
  • 6 cups Rice Krispies
  • Green food coloring
  • 20-24 pretzel sticks


  1. In a large saucepan, melt butter over low heat.
  2. Add marshmallows and stir until melted.
  3. Remove from heat, then add rice cereal and stir until well coated. Mix in green food coloring until desired green color is reached.
  4. Lightly spray hands with non-stick cooking spray. Gently flatten rice krispies into a rectangle shape and cut out ‘tree tops’ using  around cookie cutter or biscuit cutter. Repeat until all the tree tops are made. img_4793
  5. Gently stick the pretzel rods into each round to make your tree and let rest for a few minutes while the krispie treats firm up. Then, enjoy! img_4800
