I believe the original name of this recipe refers to these cookies as “big soft ginger cookies”, but I prefer to call them ginger sparkles. Their thin, sugary coating makes them glitter in the light, making them not only beautiful, but delicious!
The holidays are upon us, and if you know me at all, you’ll realize what that means. It has nothing to do with being festive or merry, or taking time to enjoy the simple pleasures of the season. It means it’s time to bake an obscene amount of cookies. Seriously. A ridiculous amount. In a single weekend.
These holiday rice krispie treats are simple, fast, and loaded with childhood nostalgia. They were one of my favourite treats growing up, and even though I’ve made them dozens of times, I still have to look up a recipe to remember what ratio of marshmallows to Rice Krispies to use.
