Recipe: Peppermint Hot Chocolate Rice Krispy Treats

As the temperature continues to drop, my hot chocolate craving just gets more and more intense. My whole family shares this hot chocolate craving with me so for the holidays this year I decided to combine our love for hot chocolate with a different love – the love for Rice Krispy treats. Sahadi’s, a specialty grocery destination in Brooklyn, sent me a few ingredients to experiment with for these hot chocolate Rice Krispy treats and I know these will become a holiday staple.
