We are full swing into baseball season, with three boys on two teams. While I love to see my little men play ball, jumping on the standing cheering for great plays and hard hits, my favorite part of the game is snack time. Oh there is nothing better than munching on some tasty treats and spending time with family. We have become experts on the art of game snacks, you know with at least 4 games a week our schedules are quite crazy! But along with our own snacking comes the joys of providing snacks for the entire team. Now this may not sound like fun to some people, but the moment you provide food for a team of hungry players, you become the favorite! Best job ever my friends! So I’m thankful to Kellogg’s® Rice Krispies Treats® for allowing me to share a little bit about why they are one of our go to treats!
Seriously, feeding the team with tasty Kellogg’s® Rice Krispies Treats® is so simple. I love how they are already packaged and ready to go! And nothing beats the creamy taste and sweet smells of these treats, reminding you of the moments you used to spend in the kitchen whipping up a homemade batch with your grandma, but with ease and convenience of the fantastic packaged wonders. The only problem with handing out Kellogg’s® Rice Krispies Treats® after the game is when the kids want to keep coming back for more!
I am so incredibly thankful that my boys have the opportunity to be involved in sports and learn to play as a team. It’s especially fun to see their faces beaming because they are proud of all their hard work. But mostly I am beyond blessed by the adults and coaches who have chosen to invest time in the lives of my little ones and encouraging them. Because I respect them so, I created a fun little thank you treat that happens to be extremely tasty!
Using Kellogg’s® Rice Krispies Treats® I created a Baseball Rice Krispie Treat Bouquet. And this baseball season, Kellogg’s® Rice Krispies Treats® is helping families unlock fun and #GetKreative with unique treat creations to spark imagination. This is how we #getkreative in the Estes household! As I’m sure you know, I don’t have a lot of time on my hands because I spend most of it chasing 7 children around. That’s why I loved being able to just rip open the Kellogg’s® Rice Krispies Treats® and start from there. No baking required, gotta love that!
Let me show you how to make this bouquet in less than 10 minutes. For real!
Here’s what you’ll need:
*Kellogg’s® Rice Krispies Treats®
*fancy straws (any pattern you’d like)
*melted white (vanilla) chocolate
*red cookie icing
First open up all your Kellogg’s® Rice Krispies Treats® and dip them in the melted chocolate, covering one side. Allow them to dry and harden, then you can “draw” on your baseball lacing with the red cookie icing. Once that has hardened, use a butter knife and poke a hole in the middle of your Kellogg’s® Rice Krispies Treats® and insert a straw. To keep the straw from falling out seal it with a little melted chocolate! Arrange them in a little bucket and decorate with extra goodies to make it look extra special! Extremely simple, right?!
