I've been a little lapse at my blog for the past week. I am currently up to my ears in candles. I am doing a Dance Team fundraiser. I sat down at the computer to look for new candy recipes for Christmas. I will be sharing the recipes I found with my readers. Let me know if you make any of the recipes and how they turned out for you. This is a recipe that the kids can help you make. It is quick and easy!
Caramel Marshmallow Treats Recipe
5 cups crisp rice cereal, coarsely crushed
1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk
1 package (14 ounces) caramels
1 cup butter, cubed
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon Spice Island® Pure Vanilla Extract
1 package (16 ounces) large marshmallows
Line two baking sheets with waxed paper; set aside. Place cereal in a shallow bowl. In a large saucepan, cook and stir the milk, caramels and butter over low heat until melted and smooth. Remove from the heat; stir in the cinnamon and vanilla.
With a toothpick, dip each marshmallow into warm caramel mixture; turn to coat. Press marshmallow bottoms in cereal; place on prepared pans. Let stand until set. Yield: 5 dozen.
