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 by 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 snowballs accompaniment?
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.
Peppermint Rice Krispies Snowballs 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.
We hope these Peppermint Rice Krispies Snowballs will become a sweet addition to your winter holiday traditions!
