Puffed Rice Reindeers

Involve your kids while making these cuties. Adding marshmallows keeps the treats chewable, yet crunchy. You can replace puffed rice ( charmuri, murmura or pori) with Rice Krispie cereal for even more crunch. Once you prepare the base of this recipe you can create a lot of fun shapes and decorate it your way. Best way to keep your kids engaged is to let them get creative with the shapes. This is a fun recipe. Make sure having lots of fun is your main focus. Don’t worry about perfect shapes or patterns 🙂
