Peppermint Krispie Treats

I have a serious love affair with Krispie Treats. Don’t worry, my husband is quite aware of this lover of mine! It all started in high school when my BFF and I would make a pan of plain krispie treats, cut it in half, and each eat a giant square! (Hi Steph, I miss you!!!!)

But now that I’m all grown up and such (kinda), I like to make fancy treats and have perfected how to make rice krispie treats. Ha! Fancy Rice Krispie treats? Oxymoron!

Anyways, these cuties are perfect for a holiday get together…you can use popsicle sticks or lollipop sticks if you don’t have any fun paper straws! (maybe you will win some in the giveaway?!?!)

Yield: 16 treats

  • 1 box (3.4 oz) Candy Cane Jell-o pudding mix

What is one of your favorite treats to make for the holidays?

As you are aware I love Rice Krispies….and pudding gives a fun twist to any treat!

Try some Gingerbread Treats or Banana Krispies

Cupcakes are an easy dessert that can feed a large group too!

My favorites (right now!) are: Dark Chocolate Cupcakes with Salted Caramel Swiss Meringue Frosting and Lemon Cupcakes with Lemon Buttercream

Brownies make an appearance every year at our holidays. Especially bite sized brownies!

  1. Ok, seriously. How did I  not know about Candy Cane pudding?! Where has it been all life?

    I think I just found my new favorite food blog! <3 

  2. I couldn’t find the Candy Cane pudding or Peppermint marshmallows. So I used Cheesecake pudding and crushed candy canes. It could of used a little peppermint extract for more of a peppermint flavor, but they were very good. And for future this is a great ‘base’ recipe to work with so many other flavor options. Thanks Aimee!!

  3. I am happy to hear that the JELL-O pudding is available at those stores because I looked on the JELL-O web site and it is not listed. I’m going to look for it.

    1. Hi Chris, I have found them at Walmart, Kroger and Meijer. I’ve heard KMart sells the JELL-O pudding too!!! Good luck, I hope you find them!!!

  4. I’d love a little bit of all of the Pick Your Plum baking supplies. They are one of my “guilty pleasures”….sssshh, don’t tell the hubs!

  9. Peppermint Rice Crispies…I think I am in love. What a wonderful treat. I have been looking and looking for that pudding and have yet to find it. Now I have reason to start stalking the managers until I get some!!!

    Thank you for the opportunity!

  12. I have a rice Krispy treat addiction as well!! I’m always trying to come up with diff ideas to make them gourmet!;)… I did some kinda like your gingerbread ones with gingerbread flav marshmallows and gingerbread Oreos with little dollops of frosting through out. It was delish!

    I’m hoping for the adorable straws and tags.

  13. I’d say straws, but I just bought some because i neeeeeeed them. So….leg warmers. I know, weird. But I see them on their all the time and want them, but can’t justify buying them. 🙂 LOVE the krispie treats too!

  14. wait a sec. candy cane pudding mix exists?!?!?! what!! where have i been? do i live under a rock? holy heck. must get my hands on that! oh and i have a rice krispie treat recipe coming next week! 🙂

  15. I love making mint chocolate chip cookies over the holidays, it’s usually so hard to find good mint chips the rest of the year so I tend to horde them once they show up in stores again.

  16. I love Pick your Plum! Sometimes I wanna cry when I see they are sold out a deal I really wanted! If I win I want some twine and cupcake wrappers

  17. I sure hope the box is full of cute baking supplies like straws, twine, and paper bags!!! Love all the PYP stuff!!!

  18. I made your recipe for Pumpkin Pie Spice Rice Krispie Treats and they were yummy. I had never heard of Pumpkin Pie Spice Pudding before reading that blog post. I ran right down to my local Walmart and there it was. Thanks for all the inspiration.

  19. How did I not know about Candy Cane Jell-o Pudding Mix???? Definitely going to be on my shopping list 🙂 Pinning for sure! I’d love for you to share this at my linky party Aimee – http://www.momontimeout.com/2012/11/your-creative-timeout-party-no-58/ I’d love to see some of those cute paper straws and some Christmas baking supplies!

  20. I loooove me some Krispy treats! I also enjoy eating half of the pan, hehe 🙂 this peppermint version looks super yum. And I want some new paper straws. I love them so!

  21. I just got on the Pick your Plum Bandwagon this week! I ordered the straws they had yesterday as little Christmas gift for my sister in law. The teal straws were just like the ones she had at her wedding 🙂

    In the box o’ goodies, I hope they have lots of cute cupcake liners, gift tags, straws… anything really! All of their stuff is cute! (Did you see the kiddio leggings today? I’m buying some for my friends with little girls 🙂 )

    1. I did see the legging….totally adorbs! My girls are all too big, and I have one neice (she is 17) and 7 nephews. hehe!!

  22. I would love to see some cute new cookie cutters for this holiday season! Anything you’re giving away would be FANTASTIC I sure of it! 🙂

  23. I’m hoping for some twine but anything from PYP would be awesome! I just love their site & if I didn’t have any self-control, I’d be broke beyond belief!! Thanks for the giveaway!

  24. I would really like cupcake liners. I have an addiction to them. Love how they can be so colorful or cute or artistic. My family laughs at me because I buy them every chance I get

      1. After four days of searching for peppermint Jell-O pudding, I finally gave up and made a couple of substitutions. I used a 4.2 oz. box of Oreo Cookies and Cream pudding with a heaping tablespoon of finely crushed candy canes and then dipped them in Wilton’s Candy Crunch white chocolate. Can you say delish?!? Thanks for the inspiration Aimee. =)
