Printable version

  • 3 Tbsp butter
  • 4 cups (1 12oz bag) mini marshmallows
  • 1/2 Tbsp ground ginger
  • 1/2 Tbsp ground cinnamon or extract
  • 6 c Rice Krispies cereal

1) Melt butter in a large saucepan over low heat.

2) Add marshmallows and stir until melted.
3) Mix in ginger and cinnamon.
4) Turn off heat and mix in Rice Krispies 1 or 2 cups at a time. If marshmallow starts to get hard to work with turn the burner on briefly to soften it.
5) Spoon mixture in a greased 13" x 9" baking sheet and smooth using a rubber spatula. *

6) Let cool completely then cut into squares and serve!

*Alternate preparation: Spread treats onto cookie sheet instead of baking pan, flatten as much as possible and cut out pieces using a gingerbread man cookie cutter.
