12 Days of Baking – Day 3: Chocolate Peppermint Rice Krispie Treats

15 Dec

I love me a rice krispie treat. They’re sweet, sticky, and buttery. They’re perfect just the way they are. However, when you want to step up your rice krispie game, I suggest dipping them in chocolate and adding some crushed candy canes. Can you say epic holiday treat. Winning

Ingredients
  • 1 stick unsalted butter
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 bag marshmallows
  • 6 cups rice krispies cereal
  • 11/2 cups milk chocolate chips
  • 6 candy canes (crushed)
Instructions
  1. Melt butter over low heat in a large pot. Once melted stir in vanilla and add marshmallows. Continue stirring until marshmallows are completely melted. Remove from heat.
  2. Add in rice krispies cereal and stir until well coated.
  3. Butter your hands and press mixture into an 8×8 non-stick pan. Add sprinkles to the top and press again lightly so the sprinkles stick.
  4. Once cooled, cut into square (whatever size you would like) and set on wax paper.
  5. In a small bowl, melt chocolate chips in the microwave at 20 second intervals stirring each time until chocolate is completely melted. If chocolate seems gloopy, add about 1 teaspoon of vegetable shortening until it becomes running. Dip rice krispie treats in chocolate, shaking off excess chocolate, then add sprinkle to the top.
  6. Let chocolate set up and serve
