For a little holiday twist on the classic rice crispy treats, what better flavors to incorporate than cranberries and white chocolate? Of course, I’ll happily enjoy these Cranberry White Chocolate Crispy Treats all year long, but these flavors seem to lend themselves to this time of year so well.
If you’ve ever made rice crispy treats, you won’t find any surprises here. Marshmallows, butter, and crisp rice cereal get things started in the usual way. But then the white chocolate and cranberries show up to make them a lot more interesting. The white chocolate will get a little melty when you stir it into the warm cereal mixture. That means you’ll get a nice combination of a little melted white chocolate along with the chips.
Cranberries and white chocolate are a wonderful flavor pairing, but you can easily substitute another dried fruit if you like. Personally, I like dried cherries with white chocolate a lot, too. There are so many dried fruits available now that the possibilities are virtually endless!
With all of the cookie baking and special dessert baking that goes on during the holiday season, it’s nice to have a simple recipe like these Cranberry White Chocolate Crispy Treats in your arsenal for an easy addition to your holiday treats list.
