Crushed Oreo Peppermint Rice Krispies

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 :-)

Yield: One 9x13 inch pan
Additional Time: 18 minutes
Total Time: 18 minutes


  • Half of a 24 oz bag of peppermint marshmallows (or if you can find a 10.5 oz bag of mini peppermint marshmallows, you can use the whole bag)
  • 4 tbsp butter, plus extra to butter the pan
  • 6 cups rice krispie cereal

For chocolate oreo drizzle

  • 6 tbsp semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 tsp vegetable oil
  • 8-10 crushed oreos


  1. Lightly butter the bottom and about 1 inch up on sides of a 9x13 inch pan.
  2. Melt the 4 tbsp of butter in a large pot over medium heat on the stove.
  3. Slowly add in the marshmallows and stir until all are incorporated and melted.
  4. Slowly add in the cereal, mixing before adding in more.
  5. Once everything is mixed, with buttered hands, press this mixture into the pan.
  6. Melt the chocolate chips and vegetable oil in the microwave in 30 second intervals, stirring, until melted.
  7. Drizzle the chocolate over the rice krispies and top with crushed oreos, slightly pressing the oreos into the chocolate.
  8. Let them sit until the chocolate is set. Cut and enjoy.

  1. These RK treats sound wonderful! I love the addition of crushed oreos on top and hope I can track down some peppermint marshmallows :) Pinning, thanks so much for sharing Beth and hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend and happy holidays!

  2. YUM this looks good… I need to look for some peppermint marshmallows. Thanks for sharing these on Foodie friends Friday and I hope you link up to our Best of 2013 party that starts tonight…
    Also so glad that they know how to plow here in upper Michigan as we have had snow anywheres between 2-5 inches every day this month… although wish they didn’t dump the snow in our driveway.

    • I’ll come by the party. Maybe those upper Michigan people need to come and teach the Illinoisans!

  3. Love this recipe Beth. I’m still enjoying all things peppermint, it always makes me feel happy in the winter. I’m sharing this on my FB page later today and pinning. Thanks for sharing on the Foodie Friends Friday Best of 2013 Party this week.

    Looking forward to seeing you again next week,

  4. G’day! Anything made with oreos always makes me smile, true!
    I have very fond childhood memories of these and great photos too!
