Show us your Rice Krispie Treats this Holiday Season! #TreatsForToys

Rice Krispie treats are a favourite in my home year round. We've experimented with adding different ingredients to make them a little bit different and special, yet, the original treat is always the best.

This past weekend, was our first real taste of winter.  The wind was blowing and the snow was falling and accumulating.  It was the kind of weekend to pull out our Christmas decorations from storage and enjoy a little time in our warm kitchen baking a treat.  It was also a great opportunity to speak with my children about families and children who might not be as fortunate as us.

This weekend, we had fun creating our very own Robot Rice Krispie.  It meant way more than just a fun Sunday afternoon of working together to make  yummy treat, though.  Our toy treat also meant that a child would receive a toy, thanks to Kellogg's Treats For Toys initiative. 

Here's how:

Create your very own Rice Krispie, Treats for Toys,  toy-shaped treats by selecting one of five new recipes posted at www.RiceKrispies.ca, or create an original toy.  Upload a photo of your Rice Krispie Toy to www.RiceKrispies.ca and Kellogg's will donate $20 to the Salvation Army.  The Salvation Army will purchase toys to distribute right across the country.  (to a maximum of $30 000)

Here's our Robot: 

The whole family got in on the fun and it gave us the chance to talk about the need to help others.  Then, after supper everyone got a taste.   It doesn't get much better than that, and a super easy way to give back this holiday season.  

Will you be making a Rice Krispie Treats for Toys this holiday season?

These are great ideas! A few years ago I participated in a similar Rice Krispie contest and we created a 3D polar bear! It was lots of fun! You guys did a great job .
