Be the Hero at the next school function, family gathering or neighborhood snack time with these Rainbow Rice Krispies Treats!
The other day my niece and brother came over for a little play date. My brother was injured while doing some training and preparing to go over to Afghanistan. Turns out he tore his back up pretty good and has had two surgeries to fix it and relieve some of his pain. He’s got two vertebraes fused together and pretty miserable. We have been getting together a lot lately as we are both recovering and need a break by letting the kids wear themselves out!
My kids have been great about this entire foot injury/surgery. It’s on me mentally that I haven’t been able to go to the park, take them on a hike, do much playing on the ground, etc. so I try and do what I can to show them that Mommy is still cool! We’ve read more books, put together more puzzles than I knew we had, colored more times than I can count and wrote the alphabet more times than I ever thought I would. I’ve got to keep my mind busy and now adding in the starting to learn to walk all over again and my day is pretty much packed from the time I wake up until the time I can’t hold my eyes open any longer.
So on this particular day that my niece came over I wanted to surprise the littles with a treat. I knew it had to be quick and easy because I was making it after lunch. I hardly ever make Rice Krispies Treats, but, I knew this was quick, easy and I had all of the ingredients on hand…I made it extra special by making the Rice Krispies Treats purple and when I was in the baking cabinet I saw I had bought a new tub of Rainbow Sprinkles so I decided to add them in too for extra playfulness for the kiddos!
Needless to say they LOVED them! TT was so excited that they were her favorite color and continued to jump up and down with Bubby and her little cousin!
