Fun St. Patrick's Day Treats

( Actually much yummier than they look!)

Happy St. Patrick's Day! I have to admit, this is one of those holidays that I really never paid much attention to...until I had kids. Boy whoever said that kids change everything - they weren't kidding!

In fact, I didn't even really know what it was about (besides all things green, of course). I found THIS, which told me everything and more.

In keeping with the green spirit of things today, I made some fun snacks for Clara's preschool class...green rice-crispy treats! They were simple to make - just mix some green food coloring in with the melted butter and marshmallows before dumping in the cereal. I also sprinkled them with some green colored cookie sugar, which made it a little extra special.

And I don't know...I was in a mood last night...and I decided to wrap them each up like a little present. I wrapped them in waxed paper, and tied a green or white ribbon around each "package". This was a simple way to dress up one lone rice-crispy treat, and was a fun surprise for Clara.

The more I think about it, the more I like the idea of making these our "all occasion" treat. RC treats are so cheap and easy, and such a fun project to do with the kids. Let's see...pink for Easter, orange for Halloween, red for 4th of July...I''m going to make a name for myself as the "Rice Krispy Treat Queen" yet!

Here's a picture of my little creations from last night:

I remember making these as a child. Actually, I think they were Christmas not St. Patrick's krispies. But what a nice memory. Thanks! Theresa
