I’m getting ready to skidaddle and head north to spend the holiday with my husband’s family, but I wanted to take a minute to wish all my readers a very merry Christmas! I appreciate your interest in my baking adventures and your support so much, and as my thanks to you, I have a super easy dessert if you need something quick to add to your holiday spread. I’m bringing this one to Abilene! I’m not a huge fan of gingerbread, but these are delicious. If you don’t have the gingerbread mallows handy, just use regular ones and double all the spices. I think you’ll like these a lot!
Gingerbread Rice Crispy Treats
Printable recipe with picture
1 stick unsalted butter, plus extra for the pan
1 10-ounce bag gingerbread mallows
1 teaspoon molasses
¼ teaspoon each: cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, cloves
several dashes of salt
6 cups Rice Krispies cereal (about half a 12-ounce box)
Butter (or coat with non-stick spray) an 8-inch square cake pan with 2-inch sides. In a large pot, melt butter over medium-low heat. Stir in the spices, molasses and salt. Stir in the marshmallows until melted and smooth. Remove the pot from the stove and stir in the cereal. Quickly spread into prepared pan and press down using a silicone spatula or a piece of waxed paper that has been sprayed with oil. Let cool, cut into squares and serve or store in an airtight container.

Gingerbread marshmallows! Don’t THOSE sound good! I’ll have to look for those before the season is up! Thanks!
Merry Christmas to you and your whole family. Your posts bring me great joy!
Merry Christmas to you also! Your gingerbread rice crispys sound wonderful! I think that I will try making some after the New Year.
Thank you for your great blog!
Love & Light
these look great, where do you find gingerbread marshmallows?!
I got mine at Walmart but they are at all the supermarkets in Wichita–usually at the end caps of aisles. You don’t have to have them, though, You can use regular and double the spices.
These look like a fun holiday treat! I hope you enjoyed the day, and that you have a great New Year!
I just saw those marshmallows in the store for the first time and I was thinking about making them into rice krispy treats! Either that or I was going to add a couple to a hot cup of coffee…maybe I’ll do both. :)
They are also great in pumpkin spice lattes! mmmm
