  1. Start by cutting the Rice Krispie Square bars in half. Mix up the icing sugar with a few drops of water to make a thick paste - this will work as your glue.
  2. Pop one half of the Square on top of the other and sandwich together with a thin layer of icing.
  3. Meanwhile roll out the green fondant ½cm thick. Make sure the fondant is as bigger than your Rice Krispie Squares stacks. Spread some icing over the stack.
  4. Flip the fondant onto the stack and smooth down around the square with your fingertips. Once you're happy with the covering, cut off the rest of the fondant and repeat until you've covered all 3 presents.
  5. Cut a piece of ribbon for each, and tie around like you would a normal present and finish with a bow. Add the little silver balls by sticking down with the icing sugar mix or spray with gold edible spray to finish.
  6. Leave to dry before placing on your Christmas tree. You can string to the ribbon to hook it up on the Christmas tree too.
