    A creative take on a classic marshmallow treat. As a kid, I loved to help my mom make and decorate them.

      Unfortunately, these didn't turn out as great as I was hoping. They were super cute, but the taste was lacking and my kids refused to eat them (which is a big shocker in my house!). If I were to attempt again I would suggest making regular rice crispy bars and tinting them green and using the spice drops as decoration.

      great stuff. My kids loved decorating them. I used mini candy-covered chocolates (mini M&M's/smarties) instead of gumdrops, they stuck wel! And a star-shaped chocolate on top of each one. I found that using hands dipped in cold water worked well for shaping, and less messy than butter. I first did a rough shape, then re-shaped them a little once they had cooled slightly, which worked well. THanks for a brillant, easy, kid-pleaser recipe!
