Peppermint Rice Krispies Snowballs ~ $100 Giveaway!

Peppermint Rice Krispie Snowballs (and Snowmen) for #Christmas! #holidays #peppermint #ediblegifts

It’s time for the 4th and final Rice Krispies Challenge of the year!

Team Asheville, comprised of Amy from She Wears Many Hats, Julie of Mommie Cooks, Robin of Add a Pinch, and myself, played around with several different ideas for our final entry, but when the krispie dust settled and the marshmallows were all melted and eaten, what we we were left with was a cold weather treat that would have even the Grinch sneaking back for seconds.

The theme presented to us this cycle by The Motherhood and Rice Krispies was Winter Holidays and what better way to ring in the cold weather season than with a steaming cup of hot cocoa and a peppermint Rice Krispies Treat accompaniment?

Easy Peppermint Rice Krispie Snowballs (and Snowmen) for #Christmas! #holidays #peppermint #ediblegifts

Peppermint is a flavor that we can all associate with winter. There’s just something about that cool, sweet punch on the tip of your tongue that makes the frosty temps a bit more welcome. For our Rice Krispies Treat, we incorporated crushed up candy canes and white chocolate to the traditional recipe. A few sprinkles of holiday cheer and a candy cane hanger completes the confection.

Simple Peppermint Rice Krispie Snowballs (and Snowmen) for #Christmas! #holidays #peppermint #ediblegifts

This treat can be made one of two ways. You can either melt the white chocolate chips along with the peppermint into the marshmallow mixture for a quick and simple sweet bite or leave them out and use a melted chocolate coating to harness your holiday sprinkle creativity. You can also try using a fun shaped cookie cutter to inspire your own unique hanger shapes similar to this adorable edible snowman.

Love these Peppermint Rice Krispie Snowballs (and Snowmen) for #Christmas! #holidays #peppermint #ediblegifts

We hope these peppermint inspired treats will become a sweet addition to your winter holiday traditions!

Yield: 24 snowballs

Peppermint Rice Krispies Snowballs

Ingredients:

1/4 Cup Butter
1 - 10 Oz. Package Marshmallows
1/3 Cup Crushed Candy Canes
6 Cups Rice Krispies Cereal
2 - 14 Oz. Bags White Candy Melts
2 Tbsp Vegetable Oil
24 Mini Candy Canes
Holiday Sprinkles

Directions:

Melt the butter in a large saucepan over medium low heat.

Add in the marshmallows and allow them to melt completely.

Add in the crushed candy canes.

Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the Rice Krispies.

If making balls, pull out heaping tablespoons from the pan and roll into balls. Add a candy cane into the center of each ball.

If making cut out shapes, press the Rice Krispies mixture into a pan prepared with cooking spray.

Allow to cool for about five to ten minutes and then cut out your favorite shapes.

Add a candy cane into the top end of the treat.

Place your finished treats into the fridge for about 15 minutes to cool down.

Melt the candy melts according to package directions and add in the vegetable oil to thin the mixture.

Dip your cooled treats into the chocolate, sprinkle or decorate, and set aside to cool and harden completely.

Note: For a quicker version, simply substitute one 12 oz. bag of white chocolate chips for the melts and oil. Add the chips in with the marshmallows and heat until completely melted. Proceed with adding the candy canes and Rice Krispies. You can then roll your balls and add sprinkles to the still warm treat.

    Gingerbread! Pumpkin spice is a close second. Not surprising, considering a spicy carrot cake is my favorite year-round dessert. :)
