Candy Cane Crunch Krispy Treats

Oh my goodness can you believe Christmas is right around the corner?!! I know, me either. Seriously 1 week until Christmas Eve. Can’t wait. Let’s just binge on ridiculous Holiday treats all week to prepare shall we? Lol!

I don’t know about you, but I will be enjoying these Candy Cane Crunch treats all week, because they are unbelievably fantastic….and because it’s almost Christmas…. and the diet starts January 1st, haha.

Have a wonderful day friends!

How to Make These Christmas Krispie Treats

Here’s the ingredients your’ll need to prepare these beauties.

I love Rice Krispies Cereal. Such great childhood memories.

Can’t not talk about how fun marshmallows are either. Key ingredient!

Have you had these yet? Candy Cane Kisses are some of my favorite variety.

Major tip here. Unwrap your kisses before starting the recipe. Takes a little time and your treats will set up too quick if you wait.

Pour your marshmallows into a big bowl of melted butter and mix.

Heat until puffed and melty. Will look like this. You can do this over the stove top in a big pot as well.

Now, the fun part. Pour your melted marshmallows into your cereal.

Keep going!

Ok, time to mix.


Quickly add your kisses. You want them to melt ever so slightly from the warm marshmallows.

Add your crushed candy cane pieces.

Transfer to your dish.

Press until nice and even.

Let’s melt the chocolate shall we?

A touch of oil helps smooth it out nicely.

Spoon over your squares, drizzling over the sides. Looks kinda like snow!

Sprinkle with candy cane pieces and voila’ all done!
