Last week, I posted about McCormick and their partnership with Kim Ima – the author of The Treats Truck Baking Book.  And today, I’m back with another Christmas treat from McCormick and Kim Ima!!

One of the things I love about the Christmas season are all of the amazing treats.  Everything from cookies to fudge to homemade caramels – I don’t think I could pick a favorite!!  And one of the best things is getting to share all of your Christmas goodies!  McCormick and Kim Ima agree – the holidays are all about sharing.  Sharing food, sharing memories – and my favorite is sharing memories with food!!  Kim Ima partnered up with McCormick this year to create some great treats that are perfect for sharing, which includes these Little Peppermint Crispy Rice Squares.  These little squares are perfect for adding to cookie plates – not only because of their size, but because the addition of peppermint and white chocolate makes them a perfect festive treat!

And don’t forget to check out McCormick’s Facebook page, where you can start with a signature cookie, customize it, and then send your e-cookie to your friends and family!

Because I’m posting another recipe from McCormick and Kim Ima, I’m extending my giveaway of Kim’s cookbook – The Treats Truck Baking Book – until Tuesday night, December 13th.  So if you haven’t already entered, make sure you head over and enter!!
