Peppermint Crispie Treats

Over Thanksgiving Melanie made these delicious Peppermint Crispy treats to share with her family.  So we decided to make them for you as well.  Too bad you can’t taste them, he he he…

These were so easy to make. First you butter the pan.

 Then, you melt the rest of the butter in the microwave with the marshmallows in thirty-second intervals.  It is important not to stir the marshmallows until they are puffed up.  It took us four intervals.

Next, you stir in the crispy rice cereal, and the peppermint chips. Finally you pour it into the buttered pan and press it in.

Melanie has discovered the trick to not getting your hands a sticky mess.  She uses plastic wrap over the treats to press them down.  The plastic wrap doesn’t stick to the rice crispies, and your hands stay clean.

These were so fast, and very festive. They are great for a quick holiday snack, or the looming potluck.

Peppermint Crispy Treats

3 T Butter
1 10 oz Bag of Marshmallows
Almost a whole 12 oz box of crispy rice cereal
Andes Peppermint Crunch Baking Chips

Lightly butter a 13X9” pan. In a microwave safe bowl melt the butter and marshmallows in thirty-second intervals until marshmallows are puffy.  Stir the marshmallow mixture until butter is fully incorporated and there are no lumps.  Add the crispy rice cereal stirring constantly to coat the cereal with marshmallow.  Then stir in about ¾ of the bag of the peppermint chips Press into the buttered pan.  Let set for about 15 minutes.  Turn the treats out and cut into squares.

Come and see us next time as we continue with our holiday treats...
