I just happen to read the post about the various kinds of flavored marshmallows... Well just before Christmas I had seen the gingerbread flavored marshmallows at our Aldi's store, and bought several pkgs to make Gingerbread Marshmallow Crispies.  I thought I would also also post the recipe I used to make those crispie bars. They were quite yummy!!!


 

Gingerbread Marshmallow Crispies 

1 stick of butter or margarine
1/8 teaspoon ground allspice
1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1 (10 oz.) bag Gingerbread Marshmallows
5 cups Crisp Rice Cereal
Holiday Decorative Sprinkles (red, green and white)

Using a plastic sandwich bag, grease 1- (9x13-inch) baking pan with either butter, margarine. Set pan aside.

Melt butter over low heat in a large Teflon coated pan.

Add the spices and stir.

Add the marshmallows, and stir until the marshmallows have melted, and the mixture is smooth.

Remove pan from the heat, then add the crisp rice cereal; stir until cereal is coated well with the marshmallow mixture.

Pour the marshmallow/cereal mixture into the baking pan.

Using your hands, which have been coated with a bit of butter or margarin;, gently press the mixture into the pan.

Immediately sprinkle bars with some holiday candy sprinkles; gently patting sprinkles onto the bars.

Let the bars set for a few hours before slicing them.

Yields: 12 bars (I cut my bars large in size, as they weren't very thick bars.)

Nellie - Shortly after these two posts were here, I turned them in on Report Abuse.
I wish Nestles did a better/faster job of removing spam

I have seen the gingerbread marshmallows at Aldi's and contemplated getting them.  I know I would not make the marshmallow cereal treats so I wonder what else I could make with them.  I do love gingerbread flavor.  Maybe just sandwiching them between graham crackers and a few seconds in the microwave would result in a tasty treat.

Bless your heart for making the report.   I think that's so important.
Well, I guess it's not at all important if Nestles doesn;t get rid of the post and ban the poster.

I post on so several other boards and within 5 minutes - day or night - of a spammer posting something it's gone and so is that person.

 I was guessing that this wouldn't go over well for her. So, when someone advertises their blog that's spam? I'm still new with all this.

Which 2 posts are you guys referring to?   I must have missed them.  I did post a recipe for marshmallows I found in the newspaper.

you don't need a recipe except just switch out the marshmallows in the usual one

vicky,
when someone new (1 st post)    gives a recipe or tip and entices with a link to a blog or other commercial site
we generally report it and vbb takes it down as they have now done w/ these 2 posts
they don't remove the conversation     just the first post w/ the link
most of us have had computer issues from viruses   etc        and are leery of signing in to unknown sites
and vbb could be seen as responsible       they are kindly hosting this site for us            and o.p. trying to profit from it is just wrong

however:
if one of our trusted members supplies us w/ a link to a recipe, song or story say        it is ok

 Thank you for telling me about spam Nellie so now I know. I haven't been on the computer very long. And here I thought spam was just a nasty canned meat!  Tongue Out  No, I'm just kidding! But spam meat junk IS nasty!

For those who weren't able to view the marshmallow crispy recipe, I will repost it, as it really is a tasty treat.  As for those who thought I was spamming the board, it wasn't my intent to do that, so I will apologize for that, and I did delete the link to my blog.  It may look like I'm a new member, but I have been a member of the forums for quite a few years, before it changed to the new one we are now viewing.  Since I was not able to log in to the new forum under my previous name with previous posts, I had to rejoin again.  I appreciate VBB for letting me be a member of the forum, and for letting me share some of my favorite recipes!
