Peppermint Rice Krispie Treats

I am a HUGE peppermint lover.  Whether it is in brownies, cheesecake, cake, fudge, frosting, cookies, candy or whatever, I will eat it.  I was walking down the aisles at my grocery store the other day and I found some PEPPERMINT MARSHMALLOWS!!! So, what did I do?  I threw a package in my cart, of course!!!  Remember my Strawberry Rice Krispie Treats?  With those, I add a little strawberry extract, because I feel like there isn't enough strawberry flavor with just the marshmallows, but with these peppermint marshmallows, I feel like there is a perfect amount of peppermint flavor, no extra flavoring needed!  These are delicious!  If you want to dress them up a bit, drizzle with a little white or milk chocolate! Yummy.

4 Tbl. unsalted butter
1 (10 oz.) package Peppermint Marshmallows
6 cups crispy rice cereal

Melt butter in a large saucepan over medium heat.  Add the entire bag of marshmallows and stir until melted.  Remove from heat and add the cereal.  Stir until completely coated and spread into a greased 9x13 baking dish.  Drizzle with white chocolate, if desired.  When set, cut into squares and serve.

  2. Seeing your rice krispie treats has given me an idea. I saw a bag of cinnamon bun marshmallows that would totally work in place of the peppermint (though I do love peppermint).
