4/12/2011 The Giveaway is now closed. Congrats to Kelly T from Texas Type A Mom!
Oh, friends… do I have a treat for you! I can’t wait to share what I have joined together with 3 of my Kansas City blogging friends to create.
I’ll give you a hint. You know Kettle Corn? That delicious, addicting sweet and salty county fair treat? And of course you are familiar with classic Rice Krispie® Treats. Well, we decided to take the flavors of our favorite county fair treat and combine it with a classic Rice Krispie® Treat, creating – The Kettle Krispie Treat. A sweet and salty, oh so addicting, Rice Krispie® treat. One bite is sweet… the next bite is salty… and you just can’t stop eating them because they are just so darn good.

Kelly from Kansas City Mamas, Jenn from Super Jenn, Julie from My Kansas City Mommy and I were asked by The Motherhood and Rice Krispies® to participate in a year long challenge creating unique and family friendly Rice Krispie® Treat recipes. They’ve turned our recipe creating into a fun little competition participating against three other teams across the United States. They are also generously throwing in some giveaways for our readers as well. (At the end of this post you’ll learn how you can win a $100 gift card… and you can enter to win a separate gift card on the other participating blog sites too!)
Before we get into the giveaway details…what do you think of our cute little Kettle Krispie eggs? Aren’t they fun? We thought these would be a great treat for a sweet treats Easter party for kids. You can shape your Rice Krispie® treats easily using well buttered plastic Easter eggs. Roll your egg shaped treats in colored sugar for another fun variation. Also you can create colorful Rice Krispies® by stirring the Rice Krispies® together with a few drops of food coloring. Sprinkle the colorful Rice Krispies® around on your table like confetti and you have yourself a fun and festive environment! We took things one step further and even filled a few votive candle holders with our colorful Rice Krispies® just for that extra touch of fun.
We hope you like what we created – and if you did, you’ll have the chances to give our Easter creations a thumbs up on the Rice Krispies® Facebook page between April 12th – April 15th (don’t worry… I’m sure we’ll give you a reminder when the day gets closer)
