Tis’ the season for peppermint, right? I mean pumpkin pie and turkey… I mean peppermint. These White Chocolate Peppermint Rice Krispie Treats are literally packed to the brim with flavor.

The actual Rice Krispie Treats are made with melted white chocolate, peppermint and marshmallow. Plus there are some Andes Peppermint Chips mixed in. Have you had those yet? They are a limited addition that only comes out around this time of year and they are amazing! To top it off, these are covered with more melted white chocolate, peppermint chips and drizzled with dark chocolate.

White Chocolate Peppermint Rice Krispie Treats

I’ve got more peppermint for you this week! If you have ever been skiing and browsed the cafeteria section, you will find giant Rice Krispie Treats. It’s kind of our go-to quick snack when we are riding and my boyfriend loves them. I may have mentioned this before, but every time I make a Rice Krispie Treat for my blog, I make him his own tray because he can’t wait for me to finishing shooting them so he can eat the whole batch.

These White Chocolate Peppermint Rice Krispie Treats are the perfect quick holiday treat to enjoy. It’s full of white chocolate and plenty of peppermint. 

What’s not to love about Rice Krispie Treats? They are super easy to throw together and can be made in so many different varieties! This recipe uses peppermint mini marshmallows both melted and whole. I saved 1 cup of the marshmallows to mix in whole. That way, when you bite into the Rice Krispie treat you get the added texture of a whole marshmallow!

    These are such pretty bars, Julianne, and I love the way white chocolate smooths out peppermint! I haven’t seen the Andes chips! As a certified chip hoarder, I will keep my eyes out for them! The chips on top of your bars appear to be pink. Is that where the pink color comes from in the bars? For some reason, I prefer pink food to green food even if both taste like mint! 🙂

      Hi Wendy! Check the baking section of your local grocery store or Walmart! They are out this time of year! I didn’t actually use any food coloring in this recipe. The peppermint marshmallows are pink!
