Peppermint Holiday Rice Krispies Treats

Rice Krispies Treats are great for the holidays.  You can decorate them, use bright holiday colors, experiment with different  flavored marshmallows.  I also enjoy making them because they are quick, easy, and fun for kids to make. I found a box of Holiday Color Rice Krispies and some Peppermint Marshmallows.   I thought these are perfect to make a quick batch of  Christmas treats. 

Start by melting some butter in a saucepan.  Next add your marshmallows and stir until melted.  Add your Rice Krispies and coat well with the marshmallows.  Press into an 9x13-inch baking dish.  Cool, cut and eat.  That's it.

I loved the seasonal flavor the Peppermint Marshmallows gave to these treats.  It wasn't overpowering,  just a hint of cool peppermint flavor.

1.  Spray a 13x9x2-inch baking dish lightly with cooking spray. Set aside.  In a large saucepan melt butter over low heat.  Add the marshmallow and stir until they are melted.
2. Stir in the Rice Krispies cereal. Keep stirring until all of the cereal is coated.
3. Press cereal mixture into the prepared pan using waxed paper.  Set aside and let cool.
