These were hands down my kids’ favorite treat of the whole series. They were actually Kate’s idea — she saw the peppermint marshmallows in the grocery store and totally shouted “We NEED to make krispie treats with THESE!”
That’s my girl.
And so we did. We made a test batch but decided the peppermint marshmallows weren’t peppermint-y enough. We made another test batch including the Andes white chocolate peppermint pieces. Good, but still not peppermint-y enough. One final batch later, we added the peppermint extract and voila — the perfect holiday krispie treat!
Don’t let the jolly pink color fool you — these treats are for more than just kids. They are surprisingly flavorful and delicious. A perfect addition to your holiday cookie platter. And the best part? They’re super easy!
This recipe calls for 3 cups more cereal than the standard rice krispie treat recipe. I like mine to be thick and sturdy (not thin and wimpy), so be ready for these to go right to the top of the pan.
