These peppermint treats are similar to a rice crispy treat! It’s like a poppable treat that everyone will love, they make a great addition to cookie plates.

If you are gifting baked goods for the holidays you have to try these treats, they’ll make a great addition to your plans. Cookies are excellent but sometimes you need a little something different! Fudge is a great choice and these Rice Krispies will round out the trays nicely!

They’re very easy, and I’m not just saying that because I want you to try them! Check it out for yourself:
