Peppermint White Chocolate Rice Krispie Treats

The base of this festive recipe, the rice krispie treats, is my go-to recipe any time I make them.  (affiliate links provided for your convenience)

Rice Krispie Treats

Anyone else love homemade rice krispie treats?  There is just something magical that happens when you melt butter, add marshmallows and some of the beloved crispy rice cereal.  I love how easy the recipe is to remember.  You just have to remember the number 6.

  • 6 tablespoons butter
  • 6 cups of marshmallows
  • 6 cups of rice krispie cereal

Melt butter in a large pan over medium-low heat.  Once butter is melted add the marshmallows.  Stir continually until marshmallows are melted.  Once marshmallows are melted, remove from heat.  Add the rice krispie cereal and stir until evenly combined.

Press into a greased 9″x13″ pan and allow to cool.

Melted White Chocolate

I love white chocolate melted onto treats!  It’s so creamy and adds a great flavor.  I personally like using vanilla, white chocolate melts.  I find they melt and spread easier.

  • 1 1/2 cups of vanilla white chocolate melts

I put my melts into a glass measuring cup and microwave at 30-second intervals, stirring after each time to see how melted it is.  Once the white chocolate is melted pour on top of the cooled rice krispie treats and spread until the top is evenly coated.

Crushed Candy Canes

Peppermint Dust Sprinkles is my favorite for topping treats during the holidays.  It’s a fine, crushed peppermint which helps to spread it more evenly.  Add as much as you’d like as soon as you’ve spread out that melted white chocolate (it will start to set up quick).
