Will Werther's Originals damage a Ninja blender?

I have an idea of crushing up Werther's originals, first by hammer in a bag, then placing them in a ninja blender, to finely crush them and then putting that results into a rice crispy treat mixture.

How fine of pieces will a ninja blender make them into or will it do damage to them?

I have chopped Oreo cookies in one and it came into a fine powder

Hi Rocky..
I wouldn't try it myself. How about old school? Put them in a double heavy duty plastic bag, and run them over with your car?

I probably wouldn't do it in the Ninja either. I like Kayelle's idea, and I see you drive a school bus. It might just work! The kids would get a kick out of it too.

Another thought would be to put them in an old pillow case, and have at it with a rolling pin, or just bash the heck out of them in the driveway.

Call me stupid, but what are Werther's Originals? I recognize the name, but have no idea what they are. Are they candies?

If they are hard candies, then, i agree with Kayelle. Use a hammer and a baggie.

Little hard caramel flavored candies, individually wrapped. Delicious. I think they have a soft candy version now too.

Just a cute side bar here, not meant to be a downer at all!

Werther's Originals are a beloved old fashioned candy much loved by many.
When my SousChef put his 102 year old mother to rest last week, the family sprinkled the candies in her grave because she loved them so much. She was a wonderful and humorous character till the day she died. Her apple with SousChef didn't fall far from the tree. She would have loved this discussion.

Werther's originals are a butterscotch type candy, but made with real butter and real cream. Anyone in California can compare them to sees candies.

That's why I have a vision to make them into a fine powder, and blend them in with the marshmallow mixture with rice krispy treats, I thing it will give it a flavorful an interesting aromatic taste.

And if I can get it into a fine enough powder, it will be a secret ingredient that no one can guess...

Or it will make the rice krispies harder to stir in, I am preparing g for that outcome as well

But I now work for a food company, drive a truck, that makes both marshmallows and ferial, so I can get them at fractional prices

Yes I need to update my status, I no longer drive a school bus, the owner retired, and got a better paying opportunity as a truck driver (local)

Please excuse my spelling, I am on a tablet and still learning the stupid keyboard on the screen, plus fighting with so called auto correct that is not doing a very good job

Rocky, I too have a Ninga Blender
I put brown sugar that was hard as
rock in mine and it ground up fine.
made a horrible noise but It didn't
hurt my blender.
If you are afraid to do it why not
melt the caramels and put them in
your rice crispy mix, You might need
to put in less marsh mellows.
let us know what you decide to do,we're
curious.
