It’s that wonderful time of year, when snowflakes fall, Santa Claus parades happen and festive lights brighten the sidewalks. It’s also time to celebrate the fifth annual Kellogg’s Rice Krispies #TreatsForToys program!
To ensure no child goes without the magical feel of the holidays, the Kellogg’s Rice Krispies #TreatsForToys program has once again partnered with The Salvation Army. The goal is to encourage Canadian families to create a toy-shaped Rice Krispies treat and submit a photo on or share it in social media using the hashtag #TreatsforToys.
This year, Kellogg’s have added a fun and creative new challenge to incorporate a moving part into your toy-shaped treat! But if that’s too much for your budding designer, a regular toy-shaped treat will work too.
Here is my daughter’s Treat for Toys 2015 creations. She can’t wait to get started on this years creation.
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.
- Stir in Kellogg’s Rice Krispies cereal until well coated. Use a lightly buttered spatula to press into buttered 3.5 L (13×9″) pan.
- Allow the mixture to cool. Then cut into desired shapes. Best served the same day
For every photo uploaded or shared on social, Kellogg’s Rice Krispies will donate $20 to The Salvation Army for the purchase of a real toy for a Canadian child in need during the holidays. Make. Share. Give. These three simple steps will help create long lasting memories for children to cherish for a lifetime.
