Peppermint Krispy Treats -- Gluten-free/Dairy-free

Ok...this is not allergen friendly for all.  If you are allergic to corn (like me), you cannot eat this recipe.  Lydia was invited to a sleepover with some friends and wanted to invent a special treat.  I was thinking easy...because she is still in early stages of trying to cook.  So we created this recipe together....

You will need....
6-7 cups of Cocoa Pebbles cereal
1 bag of Peppermint Marshmallows (or 1 bag regular marshmallows and some peppermint oil)
2 TBS Coconut oil

Melt the coconut oil and marshmallows on low...this was mommy's job.

 While I was doing that, Lydia and her cousin opened 6 candy canes and used our little food processor to crush them into a fine, powdery mixture.  I use the little Ninja food processor.

(Sorry for  the messy picture.  I am working on an allergen friendly no-bake cookie, and hadn't cleaned up from that yet.)  Lydia attempted to stir in the cereal when the marshmallow mixture was melted.  But gave up after a while.  We then put the mixture into a dish that we had put a touch of coconut oil in, to keep the mixture from sticking.

 Then the girls sprinkled the candy cane mixture on the krispy mixture.
 They looked so pretty.....peppermint, chocolate....I was drooling!  I wish i could've eaten some!
