peppermint rice krispie treats....!

peppermint krispie treats

...so i think i'm on a rice krispie treat kick....i didn't realize how simple they are to make....!...i made cinnamon ones here for the kids thanksgiving day feast at school....and also made them for thanksgiving day but didn't even bother with a post for them...

.....and i found these at the food store the other day....


....jumbo peppermint mallows!.....so of course picked them up to figure out something to make with them...since my kiddos love mint stuff....

...if you've never made rice krispie treats...they are so so so simple....you need a 10 ounce package of marshmallows (that's the normal size--since this bag is bigger i just guestimated)...3 tablespoons of butter....melt butter and marshmallows....then add 6 cups of rice krispies to the mixture...and mix well.....add to a pan (press it down firmly---spray wax paper or parchment to press down---or just spray your hands with non-stick spray and that works great too!).....


....when cool....slice them up into squares....or whatever  shape you like.....


...added a little snowflake to fancy them up....made with some royal icing i made for another project....and a shiny pearl non-pareil....
