Over The Top Peppermint Rice Crispy Treats

For some reason I don’t make rice crispy treats a whole lot, but that is going to change. These over the top peppermint rice crispy treats…left me wanting to make more. It’s probably a really good thing I wrapped them up and sent them to neighbors very quickly…because I’m not sure how well my will power would have help up to the crispy layers of chocolate and peppermint.

So if you’re looking for a fun wintery treat to serve or gift these will work great. Of course they are so yummy but they are also easy, serve a lot, and can easily be packaged. Which is kind of important around Christmas! I can’t wait to start baking friends treats…

Step 8: Then press into a large parchment (or wax) paper lined pan. I like to use a half sheet pan for these. A flat sheet pan like this gives you a nice thin treat and cuts easily! If your type A like me…you can take another piece of wax paper and lay it above the rice crispy. Then press even with you hand or spatula to get a nice clean press.

Step 9: Now spread out the rest of your candy cane Hershey kiss chunks over the top. Then layer a small amount of crushed peppermint sticks on top.

Step 10: Melt you chocolate topping.

Step 11: Finish it up by drizzling your chocolate all around.

Let set for about 1-2 hours. Cut, Serve, Enjoy!
Maybe Santa would like some of these instead this year…
