Ingredients

  • 1 box of ginger thin cookies or gingersnap cookies
  • 1 box of brown Rice Krispies cereal or regular rice cereal
  • 1 bag of marshmallows
  • 3 Tablespoons butter

Directions

Crumble and crush ginger cookies in a plastic bag. Heat butter in a large glass bowl.

Add marshmallows into the bowl with the melted butter and microwave for 2 to 3 minutes or until it bubbles and is melted. Toss Rice Krispies cereal, ginger cookies, and pecans into the marshmallow mixture.

Use a rubber spatula to turn and fold until full incorporated. Layer greased waxed paper onto a baking pan and pour the mixture into the pan. Push down to create a rectangular brick.

Place in refrigerator for 5 to 6 minutes then remove. Use the side of the waxed paper and pull the Rice Krispies out. Press and mold into a rectangular log.

Slice into inch-wide pieces. Sprinkle crumbled ginger thins on top as a garnish and serve.

Pecan Shopping Tip

Whenever possible, purchase whole, not presliced or chopped nuts. They have a longer shelf life.

Pecan Cooking Tip

Toasting your nuts helps release essential oils and intensifies their flavor.
