How to Make Snowman Rice Krispies

  • First, you make the Rice Krispies putting them in an 13″ x 18″ rimmed half sheet baking pan lined with parchment paper or tin foil and spray with non-stick spray.
  • Prepare the Rice Krispies, then let them cool.
  • Cut out  snowmen with cookie cutters, 2 sizes, one smaller for the head, one larger for the bottom. I got 14 snowmen, but you might get more or less, depending how big you make yours.

  • Use a popsicle stick and make sure it’s long enough to go through both circles and not going through the top.
  • Smush the top of the head and the bottom the stick together gently, keeping their snowman rice krispies shape when inserting your popsicle stick.  Line your tray up with all your Rice Krispie treats.

About Pillsbury™ Filled Pastry Bag Cream Cheese Frosting

  • Everything is conveniently ready to go, and it’s super cool because, Pillsbury™ came up with a genius idea and went ahead and put cream cheese frosting in a pastry bag with a star tip already included. Love how easy this is!
  • Take the pastry bag out of the Pillsbury box, take the plastic off the top of the tip end and pipe away.  All you do is guide it and fill it in with your frosting, starting from the outside in a circular motion like shown.

  • NO mess!  The end is even sealed so it can’t go everywhere!  (You’ll need 2 of these bags btw, you’ll have some left too.)
  • Here’s how the Rice Krispies look once they’ve been frosted.

  • Now for the creative part!  Using M&M’S, found in the candy aisle!!!
  • Everyone will be delighted with Milk Chocolate Candy M&M’S adorning these sweet little guys!  Red M&M’S buttons and a green scarf is created by cutting Green M&M’S in half.

  • Lastly, each needs a mini orange M&M’S button nose, mini chocolate chips for his eyes of coal and some sprinkles for the fringe on the scarf and a mouth.  You can improvise as needed.  I just used what I already had around the casa.

  • Let them set until the frosting is set. A couple of hours or overnight is good.

Rice Krispies in a 12 x 18 pan

  • 7 tablespoons butter

  • 12 cups Kellogg's® Rice Krispies® cereal
  • 14 4 1/2 or 6 inch Popsicle Sticks


  • 2 Pillsbury™Filled Pastry Bag Cream Cheese Frosting


  • 1 11.4 oz bag Milk Chocolate Holiday M&M'S®

Per snowman

  • 2 Red M&M'S for buttons
  • 2 Green M&M'S for scarf
  • 2 mini chocolate chips for eyes
  • 1 mini Orange M&M'S
  • 3 chocolate sprinkles for mouth
  • 6 green sprinkles for scarf
  • Optional: Sparkling sugar


  • In large stock pan melt butter over low heat. Add marshmallows and stir until completely melted. Remove from heat.
  • Add KELLOGG'S RICE KRISPIES cereal and stir until well coated.
  • Using buttered spatula or wax paper evenly press mixture into an 18 x 13 x 1-inch half sheet pan coated with cooking spray. Cool.

Snowmen Cut Outs

  • Using a cookie or biscuit cutter, cut out 14 smaller and 14 larger circles using 1-7/8" and 2-1/2" or something comparable.
  • Using 4.5 or 6 inch popsicle sticks, push the stick through the larger krispie circle, then place the smaller krispie circle on top of the larger krispie circle, pushing the stick until it's just half way through the snowman head.
  • Place on parchment paper for frosting.
  • Pipe frosting onto each krispie circle using the Cream Cheese Pillsbury Filled Pastry Bag, starting on the outside of the circles, start piping the frosting onto the snowmen in a circular motion working inward until you get to the center. Frost all.


  • Starting with the Milk Chocolate Holiday M&M'S, place 2 red M&M'S on the snowmen's belly (larger circle), like buttons.
  • Place 2 mini chocolate chips for the eyes and 1 mini orange M&M'S for the nose and strategically place 3 chocolate sprinkles for the mouth.
  • Cut 28 green M&M'S in half, for the scarf, placing 2 between the 2 circles with the cut part facing down. Place 2, with the cut part facing down, beside each other on one side of the snowman's scarf. (see photos for placement)
  • Place 3 green sprinkles on the end of each scarf.
  • Optional: Sparkling sugar, a sprinkle for a little glistening.
  • Let sit until frosting sets to use for your party tray or as a memorable gift wrapped up with some ribbon.
  • 1-2 hours for set-up. To speed up the frosting process you can set in a cool dry place or refrigerate for 20 minutes or so.


You can substitute the nose, eyes, mouth sprinkles and scarf sprinkles with whatever you want.
