Peppermint Chocolate Rice Cereal Bars

While shopping for our shoe box stuff the other day for Operation Christmas Child I spotted PEPPERMINT MARSHMALLOWS (the caps = pure excitement:)

Immediately my head went to rice cereal bars (of course) and then the compounding of flavors started.   With savory foods this normally ends  with “put bacon on/in it!” (or cheese:)  For this delicious treat though it went something like this:

PEPPERMINT rice cereal bars?  Yum.

Peppermint CHOCOLATE rice cereal bars?  Even better.

Peppermint chocolate rice cereal bars WITH VANILLA CHIPS? How could I not!!

This is a simple, delicious recipe that’s ideal for the busy holiday season.  I was able to make these with daycare in full swing and a baby in my arms in less than 15 minutes (during snack time actually:)

Want the recipe?  Feel free to print the  Peppermint Chocolate Rice Cereal Bars Recipe or “Pin It” for future use!

I was planning to bring these to my sister-in-laws for Thanksgiving.  The problem?  There’s not enough left!

As always, please let me know if you try these.  Feedback always appreciated.
