White Chocolate Peppermint Rice Krispie Treats

peppermint-rice-crispy-3
Tis’ the season for peppermint, right? I mean pumpkin pie and turkey… I mean peppermint. These White Chocolate Peppermint Rice Krispie Treats are literally packed to the brim with flavor. The actual Rice Krispie Treats are made with melted white chocolate, peppermint and marshmallow. Plus there are some Andes Peppermint Chips mixed in. Have you had those yet? They are a limited addition that only comes out around this time of year and they are amazing! To top it off, these are covered with more melted white chocolate, peppermint chips and drizzled with dark chocolate.

What’s not to love about Rice Krispie Treats? They are super easy to throw together and can be made in so many different varieties! This recipe uses peppermint mini marshmallows both melted and whole. I saved 1 cup of the marshmallows to mix in whole. That way, when you bite into the Rice Krispie treat you get the added texture of a whole marshmallow!
