Breakfast cereal is extremely popular in our home. If we aren’t running out of milk, we are running out of cereal. Our kids love the not-so-sweet cereals such as Cheerios, Rice Krispies, Granola, and Shreddies. These all have some sugar added, but they aren’t coated in icing, chocolate or have tiny marshmallows added. Unless we add it ourselves.
The other day my wife scored a rocking deal on Rice Krispies. She bought 14 boxes for 94¢ each. They were “Spring Edition” with some bits covered in blue or green food coloring. Still tasted the same as regular Rice Krispies. Our kids didn’t care. Plus the “Expiry Date” isn’t until November. Guaranteed they won’t last that long!
With one box, I made two batches of Rice Krispies Squares. I had never in my life made these treats. All of my children have done it with the help of their aunt. She loves to teach them how to bake whenever they visit her. So today I had my oldest help me in making them. I was happy with how easy it was and how much fun we had making them.
The squares turned out to be tremendously delicious. I think I may need to buy more marshmallows and do another couple of batches. You know, just to make sure it wasn’t a “one off” chance of being successful.
