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
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.
