It’s time to pull out the marshmallows and bounce into spring with Kellogg’s treats. We’ve had two great days of sunshine here in the Valley. It was so nice. I literally stood outside in my shorts and tank dreaming of more warmer weather to come. It’s been nothing but Rain Rain Rain.
Everyone knows that April showers bring May flowers, and some are already on the rise. I cannot wait to plant and see some color this year off my balcony. It’s amazing how wonderful weather can improve people’s moods. There is an actual bounce to my step as we get ready for spring to come.
With Easter coming this weekend, I was looking for some fabulous treats to make for the boys. Something healthy but sweet to snack on. Lord knows, they love to snack on about anything. Kellogg’s always has great recipes for parents like this hidden Easter egg surprise. How different and cool!
Yummy treats are the very best. Rice Krispies creations are so easy to make. Plus, they are super fun if you involve the kiddos. Kids can choose to make Easter Egg Treats, Lemon Drop Cookie Umbrellas, and when the basket is empty they can even eat the basket with this Rice Krispies Treats Easter Basket. Kids will go hog wild this year making their own Emoji Bunny!
