Looking for an easy Christmas treat for kids? These cute, edible Christmas Rice Krispie Treats have candy bows made from Airhead Extremes. It’s a fun candy craft that’s quick and simple, and no baking is required!

I love making festive, pretty treats during the holidays, but I also want to keep things simple. Inspired by my kids (who adore rice krispie treats and Airhead Xtreme candy), I created these “presents,” which are a fun variation of regular rice krispie treats.

You can quickly whip these together to add flair to a Christmas cookie tray or give as a gift to friends. These would also be fun to make for a kids’ school Christmas party.

Of course you can create these using from-scratch rice krispie treats, but if you want to make things even easier on yourself, opt for store bought variety.

Once you get the hang of creating the candy bow, these little present treats come together really fast. I’ve posted a video below on the bow making process, which will help you understand the steps.
