Messing with tradition

A few weeks ago we made rice crispy treats. My daughter, E, had a blast being the marshmallow tosser, tossing them into the pan. A few nights ago, we were at the grocery store and E says we should buy marshmallows to make rice crispy treats again. I'm not about to turn down dessert, so we wandered on over to the cereal isle. They did not have the generic Rice Crispies, and being the cheapskates that we are, we went for generic chocolate rice crispies instead of paying full price for the regular kind. Then we had a choice: regular marshmallows or strawberry flavored. E voted for strawberry, and being 4 she won the vote.

Turns out chocolate/strawberry rice crispy treats are delicious. It only makes me wonder what other combinations could be had!


  1. the college's cafeteria somehow makes these delicious "rice crispies" treats with fruit loops!! They even have some out of coco puffs or cheerios! They are SO good, but the fruit loop ones are my favorite :)

  2. The Wife had mentioned cheerios. But fruit loops?! Oh, the possibilities. :)
