Oreo Peppermint Rice Krispies Treats – rice puffed cereal mixed with melted marshmallow and Winter Oreos, and flavored with peppermint – a tasty and colorful holiday treat!
Growing up, my mother made a lot of Rice Krispies Treats.
I didn’t realize it, but this delectable dessert was first created in 1939! Who knew?!
These things have been around for ages, but nowadays, there are SO many incredible variations.
So, I decided to just add to the list and come up with another of my own.
I think I’ll be making these again next year. They were pepperminty good and just scream holidays.
Ok, maybe they don’t really scream it, but I certainly don’t hear fireworks going off or any Star Spangled Banner playing.
So, here you go, a pepperminty holiday treat that kids of any age will be pleased with.

Although I’m not a huge fan of red dye, I have to admit that I did like the color of these. I think they’d be a great treat for Valentine’s Day, too, but probably without the peppermint and substitute the icing for some drizzled white chocolate.
