  • 1 (16.5-ounce) package refrigerated ready-to-bake, sugar cookie dough, Pillsbury
  • 1 cup miniature marshmallows
  • 1/3 cup white chocolate morsels, Nestle
  • 1/3 cup crushed hard peppermint candies
  • Cooking Directions

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a 9x9-inch baking pan with aluminum foil, allowing foil to extend over sides of pan. Spray with nonstick cooking spray.

    Using your hands, press dough evenly into the bottom of prepared pan.

    Bake for 18 to 20 minutes. Remove from oven, and immediately sprinkle with marshmallows and morsels. Bake for 3 to 4 minutes longer, or until marshmallows are puffed. Sprinkle with crushed candy. Cool completely in pan (about 1 hour).

    To serve, lift foil to remove uncut bars from pan. Place on a cutting board. Fill a pitcher with hot water. Place a long, sharp knife in pitcher. Using warm knife, cut into 9 large squares.
