bybmg: Christmas Rice Krispie Treats

Christmas Rice Krispie Treats


If you know me, you know I love a simple recipe. I was perusing the grocery store a couple weeks ago and stumbled upon holiday color Rice Krispies and peppermint marshmallows. I just knew they were meant to be together.

One day after school, the boys and I whipped up these easy treats. We followed the traditional recipe:

4 cups of rice cereal
3 tablespoons butter
4 cups mini marshmallows

I microwaved the marshmallows and butter for a total of 1 minute 30 seconds. Stirring a little after 1 minute. Then we gradually added in the rice cereal.

The result was... pink with some dashes of green, and surprisingly, the peppermint flavor was pretty subtle. I think if you really wanted peppermint, you could add some crushed candy canes on top or even in the mix. Drizzling them with some chocolate or white chocolate might be good too!

I've been trying to do some sort of Christmas activity with the boys each week, and this fit the bill for last week when I was under the weather! Quick. Festive. Delicious!

What's your favorite simple Christmas treat?
