Candy Cane Cereal Treats & diy Treat Tray

Time for some snap, crackle and pop with these 
Candy Cane Cereal Treats! These treats are not only on the healthier side, they can be made up pretty much last minuet to use as party favors or gifts and just munching with the family.

Recipe for Candy Cane Cereal Treats

Cereal treats {we used Trader Joe's Organic Brown Rice Cereal Bars. Of course you can always make your own}

{soy, dairy, gluten, nut free}

Soft candy canes

Festive sprinkles

Directions for assembling treats

If using pre made cereal treats, cut in half and using a candy cane, gently at one end of the cereal square, begin inserting the candy cane making a indentation. Do not go too far the cereal square will break. Just enough to place melted chocolate in to hold the candy cane.

Melt chocolate with 1 tablespoon coconut oil on the stove in a double boiler. {we are trying to avoid the microwave as much as possible.}

Dip one end of the candy cane in the melted chocolate and insert it in the cereal square indentation made. Hold for a couple seconds and either lay it down on a parchment lined tray or stand it up if it will stay. Leave to set up.

Once the candy canes are set up dip the cereal square in melted chocolate and decorate with sprinkles. Set aside to set up.

Festive little pretties aren't they!

Of course you want to display and serve these treats are a special Christmas tray don't you?

We pulled out an old tray and happied it up for the occasion. This tray is an old one that started off as a Dollar Store silver tray that we spray painted white back than.

With a roll of gift wrap tape we found at Target, we brought the tray to life!

Don't spend money needlessly when you can make over an old tray you have around with some decorative tape.

We think you could use of cereal teats right about now... please, help yourself. Enjoy!

You are a lion's cub, O Judah; you return from the prey, my son. Like a lion he crouches and lies down, like a lioness--who dares to rouse him?The scepter will not depart from Judah, nor the ruler's staff from between his feet, until he comes to whom it belongs and the obedience of the nations is his.
Genesis 49: 9-10
