Earth Day Treat

As a special thing for Earth Day, we made Rice Krispies treats that look like little globes.

To do this, you simply follow the directions for making Rice Krispies treats, printed on the Rice Krispies box or on the Rice Krispies website:

Rice Krispy Treat Recipe

After adding the Rice Krispies to the melted marshmallow and butter mixture, split the batch up into two equal portions. To one portion add several drops of green food coloring. To the other portion add several drops of blue food coloring. Stir well to cover all the cereal with color. Dampen hands, so the sticky marshmallow doesn't stick to you. Take a bit of blue mixture in one hand and a bit of green in the other hand. Now, squish the two colors together. Squeeze and shape like you are making a snow ball.


Let them sit for awhile before eating, so that the marshmallow sets up and becomes less gooey.


These are a good size to carry with you, if you are like Blaze and believe that sitting down to eat would be cutting into your valuable play time.
