The Zen of Christmas Cookies

Baking and boiling. Stirring and chopping. Dipping and rolling and spooning and spreading.

Remember this one thing as you roll your dough and sprinkle your sprinkles: you are making these treats for people you love.

Hold your heart in your hands as you make this food.

Cruzer & Dustin

Love is delicious.

Putting socks on cut up feet. Dang lava rock!

Sweet & Salty Rice Cracker Treats
makes 35 squares

3 TBL butter
1 - 10oz package marshmallows
2 cups arare (Japanese rice crackers)
4 cups rice cereal (like Rice Krispies)
1/2 package chocolate flavored almond bark (or any meltable chocolate will work)

Melt butter over medium low heat in a large sauce pan. Add marshmallows and stir constantly until melted. Stir in arare and cereal.

Spread mixture in a waxed paper lined 9x13 inch baking dish with a buttered spatula. Allow to cool completely before cutting into squares.

Melt chocolate according to package directions. Dunk rice squares in the melted chocolate and allow to cool on waxed paper.

We wrapped ours up in parchment paper and tied with gift tags for neighbors and friends. Enjoy!


  1. Cruizer is adorable! I love his little socks. Does he ever try to bite it off? I know my dog would.

    I've never had a rice crispy treat with arare before. I think I've been missing out my whole life. I'm going to make this for my New Years eve party. I'll let you know how it turned out.

  2. oh, poor puppy! i hope the feet get better soon!
    happy holidays!
