Last year I participated in the Rice Krispies Making Memories Challenge with my good friends and fellow Kansas City bloggers, Kristen from Dine and Dish and Kelly from Kansas City Mamas. We created four different Rice Krispies treats that were unique and a whole lot of fun! We made Kettle Krispies …a twist on the salty goodness that is kettle corn, then there were the Tangy Watermelon Treats …these tangy treats were an ode to all things summer and fun! Halloween brought around a fun monster craft and Cinnamonster Treat Snack Mix…where we turned traditional Rice Krispies treats into a snack mix that frankly, we just couldn’t stop eating! Finally, we rounded out the year with Snap.Crackle.Poppers! We rolled and twisted our Rice Krispies into the traditional New Year’s Eve poppers toys that children and adults both love!
While I’ve always loved Rice Krispies treats, I really hadn’t begun making them for my kids yet before this challenge started. Now? I’m forever coming up with a new idea that would make them a little different and a lot of fun At our house, we also make them with Earth Balance and Gluten Free Rice Krispies to make sure that all of our dairy-free/gluten-free dietary needs are met.
Well, Rice Krispies wants to keep the memories going and has scheduled a Twitter Party with all of the previous contestants from the Making Memories Challenge as we talk about to make Kellogg’s Rice Krispies Treats for the holidays that will spark memories with your kids that last a lifetime.
The twitter party will take place on Wednesday, December 19, 1-2 p.m. CST. (You can RSVP here or follow the hashtag: #RiceKrispies on Twitter.)
Even better? Of COURSE there will be prizes!!
Rice Krispies will give away five total prizes, each consisting of a Rice Krispies Treat making kit with all the ingredients you will need to create yummy Rice Krispies Tree Trimmer Treats at home with your little helpers, plus additional holiday-themed goodies. Winners will be chosen randomly from among participants who respond correctly to trivia questions.
It will be a good time… I know this because not only will I be there … but the ladies joining me? I could sit in a room and chat up for hours! If you don’t already, follow me, @JennHethcoat , on Twitter along with these wonderful women:
