Rice crispy treats are one of my childhood favorites and these easy gingerbread man rice crispy treats give this classic treat a tasty holiday twist.

My kids love them too, even though they keep calling them “Christmas trees” instead of crispy treats. It’s one of those adorable mispronunciations they both do that I’ll miss some day.

One reason I love to make rice crispies is because they are super easy to make. With my daughter asking to help with holiday baking this year, I love how kid-friendly these are too.
