Merry Christmas! Cooking with your kids is always fun stuff, and around the holidays is the best. Gingerbread houses, cookie decorating and marshmallows and sprinkles light up any kids world.

My finicky shark and I made these Peppermint Rice Krispy Treats for Christmas this year. So simple, so tasty and done in less than 10 minutes. These Jet-Puffed Peppermint Marshmallows are the best thing to hit the holiday season since eggnog. I just added some peppermint marshmallows to my morning café latte mocha and it was delicious!

All you need to make these yummy Christmas Peppermint Krispy Treats:
6 cups crisp rice cereal
1 10 oz bag jet-puffed peppermint mini marshmallows
