Crispy Christmas Tree Lollipops


Christmas Tree Lollipops

So, hands up, who's finished their Christmas shopping? I almost have (just two more presents to collect, which I've already ordered) so there's just the wrapping left to do here (boo).... that will be a fun day! I try and be as organised as possible and get everything sorted before the start of December so the kids and I can enjoy some festive holiday baking, crafting and days out without the stress of buying and wrapping presents still on my mind. I'm also working right up to the 20th so I don't have much time to do anything after that, unless I want to drag 3 children around the shops with me (no thank-you).

These Crispy Christmas Tree Lollies are one of the recipes we like to make over Christmas.The kids love getting creative with the decorations so we raid our local supermarket cake decorating aisle before we start. Sprinkles, mini smarties, dragees and edible glitter are all used with copious amounts of icing! It's a fun festive rainy day activity for kids of all ages. Enjoy!

TOP TIPS FOR MAKING THE CHRISTMAS TREE LOLLIES

  • We used a natural green food colouring for these crispy lollies but if you wanted a stronger green colour I'd advise using a gel colouring which will give a more vibrant, brighter green.
  • The lollies will keep for up to 3 days in an airtight container and would be fine to freeze too.
  • Perhaps leave one of these out for Santa on Christmas Eve instead of the traditional mince pie.

instructions


  1. Line 2 x 20cm round tins with baking paper.
  2. Put the marshmallows and butter in a large microwaveable bowl and melt (I do 10-15 second bursts and stir).
  3. Let the mixture cool slightly before adding the puffed rice cereal and green food colouring (add a few drops at a time until you get required colour).
  4. Spoon the mixture into the prepared tins and press down firmly. Place in the fridge to chill for 2 hours.
  5. Take the baking tins out of the fridge before removing from the tins and cutting into triangles (as you would cut slices of cake).
  6. Push 1 lolly stick in the bottom of each tree triangle and decorate.
