This holiday season, I have the wonderful opportunity to work with Rice Krispies and TheMotherhood.com to spread holiday cheer. I have been asked to be a part of the Rice Krispies Box Challenge, with other Rice Krispie Ambassadors, to create a holiday table “show stopper”. I was sent a package in the mail with a $100.00 pre-loaded Visa debit card to get all of the supplies I needed for my recipe. How exciting is that?! So, what I decided to create was a Rice Krispies Christmas Tree with M & M ornaments and a Rice Krispies star on top. And to make it truly a “show stopper”, Thomas the Tank Engine helped to deliver a snowman and angel Rice Krispie treat to our family.
Using the standard Rice Krispie Treat Recipe:
1. Melt 3 tbsp of butter in large pan on low heat
2. Add 1 10oz bag of large marshmellows until completely melted
3. Remove from heat and stir in 6 cups of Rice Krispies (coating completely)
4. Spread into a Christmas tree shaped pan (make sure that all of the edges are completed spread out)
5. Add M & M’s all over your tree for decoration (ornaments)
6. Lightly sprinkle entire tree with green sugar crystals
7. In a separate pan, use left over Rice Krispie mixture to cut out Christmas star, snowman and smaller tree
Also in the spirit of giving this holiday season, Rice Krispies sent me several boxes of Rice Krispie cereal to share with friends and family. What I decided to do was wrap them up as presents and have my hair stylist (who has many clients daily) give them out as gifts at her place of business on behalf of Rice Krispies and my blog.
AND IF THAT WASN’T ENOUGH HOLIDAY CHEER, Rice Krispies/TheMotherhood.com have given me an additional $100.00 pre-loaded debit card to giveaway to one of my readers who posts a comment (here on the blog) about my Rice Krispies “show stopper” design/recipe and/or what type of Rice Krispies you like to eat.
