Peppermint Bark Rice Krispies Treats | The Hopeless Housewife

This is such a great holiday version of the classic kids treat, and so easy to make! My daughter loves any excuse to eat a Rice Krispies treat, and Christmas is no exception. The peppermint bark really works with the buttery, crunchy Krispies part, almost like they are SUPPOSED to go together…

Yield: Makes 16-20 squares
