One of my favorite treats when I was growing up was classic Rice Krispies treats developed by Kellogg. (Recipe for classic treat at Kellogg) I’m sure you have all made them at some point. Rice Krispies cereal, butter, and marshmallows are the 3 basic ingredients. I like the small marshmallows as they melt faster. You can use stick margarine but tub margarine is not recommended. It was a favorite recipe for me as a young cook all the way through my early 20’s. I rarely eat them now as I limit my sweets, but an occasional treat can be good.
My recipe today is a simple but impressive holiday treat of small peppermint kisses made of meringue and crushed peppermint candies. You can drop them by teaspoonful or use a pastry bag. Before you make the cookies, check your oven temperature. Put a thermometer in your oven and see how accurate it is. If your oven is too hot, your meringues will fail. Bake until the meringues are no longer glossy and feel light and dry when picked up, about 1 hour to 1 1/2 hours.Read More
