Does food ever trigger a memory for you? Some times thinking of an old favorite transports me to a specific, memorable event or a special person. That's what happened to me. Just now I was meandering through some of our ideas and recipes on Mermaids of the Lake and came across the Rice Krispy Treat idea. And, Morgan, my son jumped to mind. He loves these! He used to ask me to make them for his classroom birthday treat instead of cupcakes. They really are fun and perfect for picnics and parties. The great thing is, they are super easy and everyone wonders how you made plan ol' treats so cool!
Jazzy Rice Krispy Treats
It's easy! Use your standard Rice Krispy Treat recipe. Just add a packet of unsweetened Kool-Aid drink mix to the melted marshmallows before stirring in the puffed rice. Even better, make two batches with two different flavors. When you press the mixture into the pan, marble the two flavors. The mix is fun to eat and pretty see.
