National Rice Krispie Day!

Who doesn’t love the Snap! Crackle! Pop! of Rice Krispies))) The sounds and the characters! This is the cereal we grew up on, along with Corn Flakes. Both were always the Kellogg’s brand…..there is a difference! Do you like your cereal with sugar? We never ate sugar on cereal growing up, but my husband never ate his without it! And we still eat our cereal the way we grew up. I do like sliced bananas or blueberries on mine though. Growing up we never had anything but Corn Flakes or Rice Krispies until the little brother came along. You know how it is with the youngest in the family, they get anything they want! Sugar Pops, Sugar Smacks, Cocoa Krispies…you name it, it was in the cabinet!

This past Sunday was national Rice Krispie Treat Day so I thought I would share my two favorite recipes. One is a variation of the original recipe and the other is one that I experimented with that turned out great according to my grandson))

Rice Krispie Treats

My all-time favorite is Rice Krispie treats with vanilla cream filling. These are addictive! They are loaded with sugar, but having one occasionally can’t be that bad, just don’t eat half a pan!

My second favorite Rice Krispie recipe is Peanut Butter Balls with Rice Krispies

Snap! Crackle! Pop! are the cartoon mascots for Kellogg’s Rice Krispies. They are gnome characters and I just noticed that they only have three fingers. They have been around since the late 1930s.
