Gingerbread Rice Krispie Treats

Rice krispie treats are a favorite in our household. They are so versatile. Once you make the mixture, you can shape and mold it into virtually any shape you want. Not only can the rice krispie treats be made into any shape, but also any flavor by using an extract or flavored marshmallow like we did here with these gingerbread rice krispie treats.

Here is how to make these crazy easy gingerbread rice krispie treats

Ingredients:
1-10 oz bag gingerbread marshmallows*
6 cups Rice Krispie cereal
3 Tablespoon butter
2oz white almond bark
Gingerbread candies, optional
*NOTE: if gingerbread marshmallows are not available to you, use regular marshmallows and add 1 teaspoon molasses, ½ teaspoon nutmeg, ½ teaspoon ginger and 1 teaspoon cinnamon to regular marshmallows AFTER melting.
Directions:
Grease or line a 9x9" square baking pan.
Place your marshmallows and butter in a large, microwave-safe bowl.
Heat for 30 seconds, then stir, and reheat as necessary.

Once the Rice Krispies have set, heat the almond bark in a small microwave-safe bowl for 30 seconds, then stir, and reheat if necessary.
Drizzle the white almond bark over the squares. Add any sprinkles or decorations while the almond bark is still wet.
