Crushed Oreo Peppermint Rice Krispies
Rice Krispie treats are so versatile and fun.

On the day I was suppose to make this recipe, I still needed to go to the store to get the peppermint marshmallows.

But we got about 7 inches of snow overnight. And Illinois doesn’t know how to plow (I am a little biased, having lived in Minnesota). So I walked to the grocery store about 4 blocks away and it took 50 minutes!

Eventually I made it to the store (with sloppy wet boots) and I was thrilled when I found these large peppermint marshmallows – they are like 2 inches wide!

They are also very delicious in hot chocolate :-)
