The holidays are filled with magic and joy. The magic of spending time with family and loved ones. The magic of believing in miracles, and the joy of watching the eyes of children shine as they unwrap heartfelt gifts. For the third year in a row, Kellogg’s Rice Krispies is partnering with The Salvation Army for the #TreatsforToys program; a fun and delicious way to turn treats into toys and help make holiday magic happen for the less fortunate kids in our communities.
My daughter had a lot of fun making delicious treats and was very excited to upload them to the #TreatsforToys website to help others.
Basic Rice Krispies Recipe
- 50 ml or 1/4 cups of margarine or butter
- 250 ml or 1 pkg (about 40) regular marshmallows or 5 cups miniature
- 1.5 L or 6 cups Rice Krispies
- Melt margarine in large saucepan over low heat. Add marshmallows and stir until completely melted. Remove from heat.

The Kellogg’s Rice Krispies #TreatsforToys program helps bring a smile to children in need by encouraging Canadians to make a toy-shaped Rice Krispies treat and share a picture of it on Twitter, Instagram or Facebook using the #TreatsforToys hashtag. For every image uploaded from now until December 21, 2015, Kellogg’s Rice Krispies will donate $20 to The Salvation Army to buy a toy for a child in need during the festive season.
