Sometimes I feel like I am a Mommy, and that I should do Mommy-things.
Oh. Wait. I am a Mommy. It’s these skinny jeans I’m wearing. They confuse me. Wearing something other than yoga pants made me feel like I was here, but 10 years ago.
Well, about those Mommy-things – I made Easter Rice Crispy Treats with my 3-year old, Ana. I let her stir the cereal, spread the chocolate, and throw around a bunch of candy. Baby girl was in baking heaven. She even helped me unload the dishwasher. If we keep up with this, she will be able to take over kitchen duties in the next 2 years. Thank heavens!
In the last year she and I hung out a few times in the kitchen right before each Holiday; we spent some time in there for Halloween and made these Jack O’ Lantern Grilled Cheese Sandwiches. Then, right around Christmas, we also made Christmas Cookie Pops. She was thrilled! The end product is always such a joy.
And, as if I couldn’t get any more excited about hanging out with her in the kitchen, I have discovered that she and I can also make killer Rice Crispy Treats! These little gems are really easy to throw together and you can make them with any candy combination you can imagine. Then, just grab an egg-shaped metal cookie cutter and cut away! Do you have a bunny cookie cutter?! That’s even better!! Lucky you!
You know what surprised me about these treats? Honestly, they were the best rice crispy treats I have ever made. Seriously. I could not keep my hands off them. I think the white chocolate just sent them over the top. Or the jelly beans. Oh, maybe it was the milk chocolates!
Now you will have to pardon me while I go and polish off the two rice crispy treats that I hid from Ana. I put them on top of the kitchen cabinets. I hope they are still there.
Grab the kids, go into the kitchen, and make these. I think you’ll agree that these are the bestest Easter Rice Crispy Treats you have ever made.
