Mexican Hot Chocolate Rice Krispie Treats

I love chocolate and cinnamon.

Mexican Hot Chocolate is one of my favorite winter treats–
and with cinnamon marshmallows and cinnamon M&Ms on the shelves this year, 
I knew I had to make rice krispie treats!
And, even better, I heard a rumor that the cinnamon M&Ms are on clearance at Target this week!
(if you can’t find cinnamon marshmallows or cinnamon M&Ms in your store, just substitute in 1 tsp of cinnamon with regular marshmallows and use plain M&Ms)

  9. Mexican chocolate and Rice Krispie Treats… I love both, so together they have got to be just wonderful. If you are adventurous you can add a pinch of cayenne to your chocolate as well. I can’t tolerate very spicy stuff, but a little gives you a bit of a glow… kinda warms it up just a bit. Adjust according to taste obviously! :-)

  10. Oh…my…goodness. This sounds awesome! I have to make some asap.
