Cheerio Xmas Tree Treats

Cheerio Xmas Tree Treats


3 cups marshmallows (white or pink)
3 tbsp. butter
Green food colouring
3 cups Cheerio’s
Mini M&M's (just the red and green ones)
Jaffa biscuits
Vegetable fat spray


  • In a bowl, place the marshmallows and butter together and melt in the microwave on high for 40 seconds.
  • Mix well with a spoon.
  • Add green food colouring until you have the colour you like.
  • Pour Cheerio’s into the marshmallow mix and stir well to coat. Leave to cool until the mixture becomes tacky.
  • You may need to put it in the fridge if it is a warm day.
  • Cover a tray with baking paper. Spray your hands with canola spray and shape the Cheerio’s mixture into cones and place on the tray.
  • Place in the freezer for 20 minutes to firm up.
  • Remove and decorate with red and green M&M's and place a Jaffa on top.
  • The trees will still be sticky enough for the decorations to adhere but you may need to use a little icing to stick the Jaffa on. You can use a tube of ready-made writing icing.
  • Little ones will need help with the microwave step of this recipe. A light dusting of icing sugar will make it look like you have snow on your trees.
