Gingerbread Rice Krispy Treats

During a ‘ quick’ trip to Target (does such a thing really even exist?), I walked out with an arm full of random stuff including Gingerbread flavored mallows.  I wasn’t exactly sure what I was going to do with them (I seem to remember buying them in the past dipping them in chocolate, and loving them), but along with a bottle of red wine and some allergy meds, they landed in my arms, cart, and shopping bag.

Sunday morning, I had plans to meet a good friend for a Core Power Yoga class.  Beforehand, I had just enough time to whip up a batch of Rice Krispy Treats.

A quick Google search revealed that not much has been documented about making treats with the gingerbread mallows, so I followed the basic recipe adding in a bit of extra spice.

The result was delicious!  A hint of spice lingering after each bite!

Of course, I brought a few to my yoga going friend and then packed up the rest to bring holiday cheer to my coworkers!

The yoga class was hot, sweaty, and intense.  My favorite part…the quote the teacher shared with us as we set our pre practice intention.

After my previous post about life and balance, this hit home, and I have been thinking about it and sharing it with others during this busy holiday season.  With this in mind, it was around 8:30pm that I climbed into bed with my book last night.  Slowing down was a great idea yesterday…especially since today was jam packed!

  1. I can’t say I’ve ever seen gingerbread marshmallows, but that recipe sounds great! I’ll have to keep my eye out. I wonder if they’re in canada?
    That is a brilliant quote- especially at this time of year. Thanks for sharing! And I hope you take some time for yourself this week 🙂

    • Thanks Abby!
      Today was the BOY’s last final EVER! So when I got back from work we celebrated Hanukkah and are enjoying a glass of wine. It’s ideal! Even better because I get to sleep in a bit tomorrow morning.
