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

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. straws! I love straws… and I love your site. I do believe this is my first time here, you had me at crispie treats… 🙂

  5. 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!

  6. I am hoping for a little of everything lol. No I am always happy with whatever I get but recipes and ideas are always welcome! Thank you so much for a chance to win.

  7. I would love the staws!! I think my daughter would like to make these little krispie treats.and make them like a lollipop!
