  • Lightly spray an 8x8 pan with cooking spray, set aside.
  • In a large saucepan (I like this 7 quart Dutch oven) over low heat, melt butter.
  • Stir in peppermint marshmallows and regular marshmallows and heat on low (stirring frequently) until melted.
  • Unwrap peppermints and place in a Ziploc freezer bag. Hit mints with a hammer or meat tenderizer to crush.
  • When marshmallows are melted, remove saucepan from heat and stir in crushed peppermints.
  • Add Rice Krispies and gently stir until well coated. (I prefer a spatula instead of a spoon.)
  • Gently press Rice Krispies mixture into the greased 8x8 pan.
  • Top with sprinkles, if desired. Gently press sprinkles down onto surface of Rice Krispies.
  • Let sit at room temperature for 15-30 minutes to cool. Cut into pieces and serve.
  • Wrap leftovers in an air-tight container and store at room temperature for 1-2 days.
