Ingredients

  • 6 cups Rice Krispies cereal
  • 20 Candy Cane Joe Joe's or oreos, crushed/chopped (about 2 1/2 cups crushed)
  • 6 cups mini marshmallows
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 2-3 peppermint candy canes regular sized
  • 2 oz white chocolate
  • 2 oz semi-sweet chocolate
  • 1/4 cup mini M&M's

Instructions

  • In a large bowl, add cereal and crushed cookies. Mix to combine.
  • In another large, microwave safe bowl, add marshmallows and butter.
  • Microwave 2 1/2-3 minutes, or until the marshmallows are super fluffy, and melt together when stirred.
  • Stir together, until the marshmallows and butter are fully combined.
  • Pour melted marshmallows on top of the cereal and cookie mixture. Use a spatula that has been sprayed with cooking spray to quickly mix the marshmallow cream and cereal together. Stir until combined.
  • Quickly, pour/scoop the sticky mixture into a prepared 9"x13" pan. Spread the mixture around, and press down with spatula.
  • While the cereal treats cool, crush 2 or 3 candy canes in a small ziplock bag. Sprinkle crushed candy on top of krispie treats.
  • Melt the white chocolate by placing chocolate in a piping bag or heavy ziplock type bag, and microwave at 50% power until nearly melted. Kneed the bag a little in your hands (careful- it will be hot!) Snip off the end of bag and drizzle chocolate on krispie treats
  • Repeat as above with semi-sweet chocolate.
  • Top krispie treats with mini M&M's or festive sprinkles.
  • Allow chocolate to set before cutting into squares.

Notes

I used Trader Joe's brand Candy Cane Joe Joe's Cookies for this recipe. They are delicious and I highly recommend them. If you can not get ahold of those exact cookies, feel free to use regular oreos, or mint oreos.
