Snap! Crackle! Pop! Cheep! Cheep!
For the past couple of weeks some friends and I have had the pleasure of playing with Rice Krispies Treats, creating little critters and such. Rice Krispies® began a friendly, year-long challenge with four teams across the nation for the Rice Krispies® Making Memories Challenge. Along with Julie from Mommie Cooks, Sommer over at A Spicy Perspective, and Robyn at Add a Pinch, I was invited to join the team representing the south. Fun huh?
Let me explain. (There’s a lot of information here, so let me know if something doesn’t make sense.)
The goal? To make an original Rice Krispies® Treat focused on a given theme. Over the course of the year there will be a total of four challenges between the four different teams, each with a different theme. For each of the four challenges a winner will be chosen. It should be a fun and tasty year ahead!
Here’s the low down on our entry for the initial challenge.
Isn’t he cute? Or she?
The chick is made of delightful lemon, white chocolate Rice Krispies® Treats, coated with coconut. It tastes just like lemonade! It sits atop a dark chocolate Rice Krispies® butter cookie nest. Let me tell ya, it’s yummy! Lemon and dark chocolate is a combo everyone should try this spring.
The chicks and nests are easy enough for the kids to join in on the fun creating them. What a fun spring time project for those busy hands that need something to do. We also made a centerpiece to accompany the itty bitty chicks.
The centerpiece is a basket filled with a Rice Krispies® landscape for more chicks and their bunny friends, and a spring time garden. It was fun to put together and mostly made, again, with Rice Krispies®. For a full explanation of how we made the centerpiece, check out Robyn’s, from Add a Pinch, post. She explains it down to the “T.”
You’ll find the recipes and details on how to make the little chicks and nests below.
