As a mom I can' count how many times I am put on the spot, with Oh yeah you need to make me a treat for school tomorrow... or as a wife. "hey hun, can you make something..... about 100 sales people tomorrow at work?"
In times like those with my son's school, cereal treats are the way to go. Cheap, no bake, fast, and the kids can help.
Peppermint White Chocolate Krispie Treats
5 cups rice krispie cereal
1 10 oz bag of marshmallows
1/4 cup butter
1/4 tsp peppermint extract
1 bag of Andes Peppermint Crunch White Chocolates, Chopped (Or Hershey's Peppermint Kisses)
In a sauce pan over medium heat add butter, marshmallows and peppermint together. mix continuously until melted and smooth. In a large bowl mix cereal and marshmallows together until coated. Work quickly because it will harden as it cools.
Press mixture into a parchment paper lined pan. Press chopped mints on top of the treats. Set aside to cool completely. Just an hour or 2. Cut into bars!
Easy peasy holiday party treat for your kids!
