Peppermint Chocolate Krispie Treats {In A Jar}

07 December 2012

Hi Lovlies!

Today I bring you a special treat. Not only are these scrumptious, they make an excellent Christmas gift as well!

I have been trying to come up with a treat that I could make into a "jar recipe". Ryan and I will be with my family in Colorado for the holidays, so I wanted to make sure to send some holiday cheer back to New Jersey to his side. His sisters & mom read the blog & love the recipes, so I thought it would be fun to send them some baked goodness along with their other gifts.

I've seen the peppermint marshmallow/cocoa krispie combo floating around pinterest, but I wasn't thrilled with the recipes I found. Then I saw this post and knew that a twist on Rice Krispie Treats is what I wanted to make!

So I give you:

Peppermint Chocolate Krispie Treats {In A Jar}


All you need is:
- Cocoa Krispies
- Peppermint Marshmallows
- Andes Peppermint Crunch
- Quart Sized Mason Jars
- Ribbon
- Small Plastic Baggies
- Printed Out Instructions

1// Grab a mason jar. Fill it with 2 cups of Cocoa Krispies.
2// Add 1 1/3 cup Peppermint Marshmallows on top. Pack it down and put the lid on. It will be tight, but this will keep the two ingredients from mixing together.
3// Place 1/4 cup Peppermint Crunch into small, sealable plastic bags. I found them in the beads area of the craft section of Walmart.
4// Assemble the jar however you would like. I attached the Peppermint Crunch to the top and tied a gold bow to the jar. Then I took jute and attached hand made instructions I created.



You can see the instructions listed above. Make sure the lucky gifted person knows they need 1 tablespoon + 1 teaspoon of butter.

I loved that I found a way to give a dessert in a jar that didn't require my friends & family to have 20 other ingredients on hand. They just use the jar you give them + butter!

I have personally  made the recipe TWICE in the last week...some little treat elf keeps gobbling them down when I'm not looking ::cough cough, Ryan::


Who could blame him? These treats are sooooo yummy! The peppermint + chocolate is such a festive combination.

I think the jars turned out lovely and I am so excited to ship them out this week (:





Need a great stocking stuffer idea?

  4. I'm totally doing this. Last year I did Christmas Blondies in a jar and they were a HIT! But I had a ton of jars left over and I didn't want to do the same thing again. Thanks for posting!!

  11. When I first read the title of this post I thought, "Why in the heck would you want to dig a rice krispie treat out of a jar!?" But when I actually saw what you meant, it's pretty freakin' genius. And I may need to give this as a gift to several people this year. Great idea!
