Rice Krispies is a classic recipe that most people like but with the holiday edition of the cereal out in stores right now, I wanted to do something a little different. I found some peppermint marshmallows and whipped up these Peppermint Rice Krispies with Peppermint Cream Cheese Frosting, because everything is better with frosting on top!
With just over a week left until Christmas, I can’t believe that all the treats and appetizers that I wanted to try this year won’t be happening. I always have this big list in my head of things I want to make but never seem to have the time to do it all. This recipe was doable because they’re quick and easy to make. Perfect for any last minute baking!
I found the peppermint marshmallows in the US so if you’re a fellow Canadian and can’t find them, I would suggest adding some peppermint extract and a bit of red food coloring to white marshmallows get the same effect. Although, I think with the festive Rice Krispies they would still look great without the red food coloring. The green and red krispies would just stand out more!
My kids loved this version of Rice Krispies but my husband still prefers the classic vanilla ones. I expected that but sometimes he just needs to step out of the box!
