Candy Cane Dipped Rice Krispies Treats
Don’t make these unless you are sharing them
YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED
Actually an evening of Candy Cane Dipped Rice Krispies Treats (all to myself) in front of the TV watching something Christmas-y, sounds amazing. No one will know, right?
Rice Krispies Treats are addicting on their own. Just plain. I can eat an entire batch, with no shame. I once had a some left over Rice Krispie Cereal and a some marshmallows. I’m sure you know what happened next. After dinner I grabbed a small sauce pan, and made magic. I didn’t even wait for it to cool into the cute squares. No, way Jose! I shoved the mixture in my mouth by the spoonful. Again, no shame.
To the joy of my thighs, I made these to share. My lovely friend hosts a kids craft party every year. This year, I was able to attend. I snagged a kid! My niece Lucky little thing. Made out with an afternoon of crafts and these treats.
It was a great way to spend a Sunday. Full of sweet things and innocence.
Candy Cane Powdered Sugar Dipped Rice Krispies Treats
- 10oz bag of marshmallows
- 1/4 cup of butter
- 5 cups rice krispie cereal
- 1 cup powdered sugar
- 5-6 small candy canes (or 3 large ones)
- 3 oz white chocolate baking squares
- Grab a medium sized sauce pan
- Melt the butter over medium heat
- Add all the marshmallows and stir constantly until melted
- Remove the marshmallow mixture from the heat
- Add the rice krispie cereal and stir until combined
- Spread over a buttered baking sheet. I pushed the rice krispies into half of the baking sheet, so it would be squared on one end, and the free-hand ended the rectangle
- Let them cool for 1 hour
- Cut the rice krispies treats into 1 1/2 inch strips, then into squares. I was able to get 20 rice krispies
- Candy Cane Powdered Sugar– Grab 2 ziplock bags, add the powdered sugar, and candy canes. Crush and shake
- Over a double boiler melt the white chocolate (or use a microwave at 30 second intervals, stirring in between)
- Dip one end of each square into the chocolate. Then into the candy cane powdered sugar. Using your hand, gently push the candy cane sugar into the treat to make sure it’s stuck to the chocolate
- Set back on the baking sheet, making sure they don’t touch another treat. Let cool for another hour
My friends and the kids enjoyed the treats. The hostess ended up with extras and snuck one in her daughters lunch box, which I thought was so sweet. Then text me last night to confess that she’s been eating the remaining treats
