What We Did During the Holidays (that I totally forgot to post) #Kelloggers

Though Little One is an only child, she is in constant company of other children.  We've got a great group of friends on the Island with children all around the same age as Little One and we get together on a regular basis.  Oftentimes, we take turns hosting a get-together, dinner party or play date. We always make sure to have fun and educational activities for the kids.

My friend and her husband went out on a date night and I took her kids for the evening. What to do with a bunch of kids that will keep them occupied for a while? Make Rice Krispie treats!

Edible art.
I was sent the above package to create Rice Krispies treats for the Holidays. The package came with two boxes of Rice Krispies cereal, marshmallows, and all the decorations and embellishments required to create stunning treats.

I made the present and snowman below. I didn't know what to  use for the snowman's hat, so I used a fig!

 Quick. Easy. No Bake. Fun.

3 tbps butter or margarine
1 pkg reg marshmallows (40)
6 c Rice Krispies cereal

Melt butter on low heat in a large saucepan.
Add marshmallows and melt completely.
Remove from heat.
Add Rice Krispies until evenly coated in melted marshmallow.

Lightly butter hands so they don't get too sticky with marshmallow. Form Rice Krispies treats into whatever shapes you desire.



Ahhh...Life with boys! I only have a daughter, so seeing this Rice Krispie treat above made me laugh. My friend's son made a snowman that got shot in the chest with a candy cane. Of course, Optimus Prime in the background was the pièce de résistance!

I let the kids each have one Rice Krispies treat to eat while we watched The Lorax. When their parents came to pick them up, I sent them home with all their Rice Krispies creations.

Disclosure - As a member of the Kelloggers Network, I received the above package to create Rice Krispies treats of my own. All the thoughts and opinions on this blog are honest and my own.
