Cheerios Christmas Trees

When I was a little girl, I remember my Mom making these super cute Cheerios Christmas Tree treats for me to take into school and share with my class. Now I am the Mom and I knew these would be a big hit in my son's Kindergarten class this holiday season.

Cheerios Christmas Trees


  • 6 cups of Cheerios (can use regular or honey nut)
  • 4 1/2 Cups Mini Marshmallows
  • 6 T Salted Butter
  • Green Food Coloring
  • Gumdrops
  • Cooking Oil Spray

  • In a medium saucepan, melt the butter and marshmallows over low heat, stirring constantly, until fully melted and smooth.
  • Add green food coloring until desired shade is reached.
  • Place Cheerios cereal in a bowl and add the marshmallow mixture, stirring until all the cereal is thoroughly coated.
  • Place a sheet of parchment or wax paper on a cookie sheet.
  • Spray your hands with the cooking oil and take a handful of the Cheerios mixture and form into a Christmas tree shape. Be sure to press it firmly together so the tree doesn't collapse.
  • When you are finished forming each tree, set it on the cookie sheet.
  • Once all of your trees are formed, slice your gumdrops and just stick the little circles on the trees as ornaments.
  • Place the trees in the refrigerator to set for about an hour, then take them out and cover them up until they are ready to be served!
