Peppermint Rice Crispy Treats

peppermint rice crispy treat edited Ingredients:

  • 1/4 cup salted butter
  • 1 (10.5 oz) package miniature marshmallows
  • 1/2 tsp peppermint extract
  • 6 cups Rice Krispies cereal
  • 1 pkg white candy melts
  • Red icing gel (I found mine at Walmart craft section with all the other cake decorating items)

To start this tasty treat you will need to melt butter over low heat in a large non-stick saucepan.  Add marshmallows and stir constantly, until all of the marshmallows have melted.  Remove from heat and stir in peppermint extract. Gently stir in Rice Krispies cereal until mixture is evenly coated.  Spray your hands with a little cooking spray so the mixture doesn’t stick to your hands.  Roll into balls and let cool.

Once the rice crispy balls are cooled you will melt your candy melts.  Dip each ball into the candy melt and set aside and let harden.
Once the candy melt cover is hardened take the red icing gel and decorate your rice crispy balls to look like peppermint candies.
