2. Stir in the rice cereal and then dish out the mixture into a 9x13-inch pan. Pat it down to an even thickness. Let it cool and set for 15-20 minutes.

3. Put the white chocolate chips in a microwave-safe bowl and microwave them in 30 second increments, stirring each time, until fully melted.

4. Use the round cookie cutter to cut out treats. Drizzle them with the melted white chocolate. Then grab your sprinkles, edible glitter, and any other toppings that call to you, and add them to your ornament. Remember, it reflects your personality, so there’s no wrong way to do this part! Chill in the refrigerator or freezer for 30 minutes, so that all your decorations will stay where you want them.

5. To finish, let’s get these ornaments ready for the tree! Using the smaller end of a chopstick, poke a hole in your ornament and loop a strand of ribbon through. Tie the ends of the ribbon together in a knot, and your ornament is all done! Want to share it as a last-minute gift? Wrap it in cellophane and stick on a bow. Would you rather have a snack? That’s okay—these are treats to enjoy right now, too!
