Tastes Like Xmas

This is the recipe I was going to post last week and then didn't. It goes along with the previous week's recipe for Gingerbread Rice Krispy Treats, except I did these ones in the microwave for anyone who wants to give that a go instead of the stove-top method. Use these ingredients in the previous recipe if you don't want to do them in the microwave.


Candy Cane Krispy Treats

Ingredients:
  • 3 Tbsp butter
  • 4 cups (1 12oz bag) mini marshmallows
  • 1 Tbsp peppermint extract
  • 10 peppermint candies
  • 2 Tbsp mini chocolate chips (optional)
  • 6 c Rice Krispies cereal



Directions:
1) Unwrap candy and put in a ziploc bag. Cover with a dish towel and crush using a hammer. Transfer to a small bowl and mix in chocolate chips if desired.
2) Prepare pan with cooking spray and set aside.
3) Melt butter in a small bowl.
4) Put marshmallows in a large bowl and pour butter on top. Stir to coat evenly.
 
5) Microwave on high for 1 minute, then 30 second intervals, stirring in between, until completely melted.
6) Stir in Krispies about 2 cups at a time.
7) Transfer to baking pan and smooth with a rubber spatula.
8) Sprinkle with peppermint (and chocolate) and press down with spatula to adhere.
9) Refrigerate for 30 minutes to set then turn out on a cutting board.
 10) Let treats return to room temperature then cut into squares and cover until ready to serve.
