Total Time (MIN): 20
Servings: 12


  • 1/4 cup (60 mL) butter
  • 5 cups (1.25 L) mini marshmallows
  • 2 tsp (10 mL) peppermint extract
  • 6 cups (1.5 L) Original Rice Krispies* Cereal
  • 8 oz (240 g) white chocolate, chopped
  • 1/3 cup (75 mL) crushed peppermint candies or candy canes


1. Line 15- x 10-inch (40 x 25 cm) rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper; set aside. Melt butter in large saucepan set over low heat; add marshmallows. Cook, stirring, for 8 to 10 minutes or until completely melted.

2. Meanwhile, place white chocolate in a heatproof bowl set over a saucepan of gently simmering water. Stir occasionally; heat until melted. Cool for 5 to 10 minutes.

3. Once marshmallows have melted, stir in peppermint extract. Remove from heat. Immediately stir in cereal until coated. Let cool slightly. Using wet hands or buttered spatula, press into prepared pan, about 1/2-inch (1 1/4 cm) thick. Spread melted white chocolate over top. Springle with crushed candies. Let stand for about 10 to 15 minutes or until chocolate sets. Cut or break into pieces. Store in airtight container.
