Kangaroo Express is challenging store guests to make festive holiday recipes—called ROOcipes—using candy, snacks and other treats found only at their neighborhood Kangaroo Express store.
Inexpensive and fun to make, ROOcipes are a perfect holiday party host gift, slumber party treat or road trip snack. Just by combining readily available ingredients in fun and creative ways, there is no end to the festive creations that can be made from every day snack favorites found at Kangaroo Express.
For example, the “Peppermint Chocolate Dream” ROOcipe can be made by drizzling a melted Hershey’s chocolate bar over divided Kellogg’s Rice Krispies Treats and topping with crushed peppermint candies. “ROLO Pretzel Poppers” can be whipped up by placing a ROLO on a snack-size pretzel, melted for just seconds in the microwave or a few minutes in the oven and sandwiched with another pretzel.

“Our guests already know us as an affordable on-the-go destination for snacks and candy,” said Joe Venezia, senior vice president of operations, Kangaroo Express. “Now we are excited to see how they will use everyday items bought at their local Kangaroo Express to invent unique, delicious ROOcipes.”
Starting on Dec. 6, guests are encouraged to share their favorite ROOcipe over Facebook, Twitter or Instagram with the #ROOcipe hashtag for a chance to win a $20 Kangaroo Express gift card and have their ROOcipe featured on the Kangaroo Express Facebook page. Two winners will be chosen on Dec. 20.
While picking up ingredients for the perfect ROOcipe, guests can also buy last minute stocking stuffers like ear buds, smart phone cases, holiday DVDs and remote control toys. No holiday shopping trip is complete without a chocolate fix, and during the month of December Kangaroo Express is also offering special edition double dark hot chocolate; perfect on its own or as part of a customized Bean Street Coffee brew with whipped topping, flavored creamers and more. With the refillable Roo Mug offering 50-cent plus tax refills through March, that’s a chocolate fix that’s easy on the taste buds and pocket.
