Rice Krispies 2011 Making Memories Challenge & $100 Visa Gift Card Giveaway

Cocoa Butter Krispie Treat Eggs

4/12/11 – Congrats to Tina M. from Florida our Giveaway winner.

Rice Krispie Treats just happen to be one of my favorite guilty pleasures and yes I have been known to devour an entire batch on my own. So how excited was I to be asked to be part of a Rice Krispies nationwide challenge. I am on Team Philly with 3 great Philly bloggers. This year we are going to complete 4 challenges. The first of which was this Easter challenge. And we had an absolute blast putting this together and devising our own Easter Rice Krispie Treat recipe – Cocoa Butter Krispie Treat Eggs. We created an entire Rice Krispie treat Easter display to showcase our goodies – including an Easter basket made from Rice Krispies.  I love my crafty Philly Team! Oh and we each get to giveaway $100 Visa gift card (see below for details on how to enter).

Our Rice Krispie Treaty Display!

A Rice Krispie Treat woven basket, a large Rice Krispie Treat wrapped Easter Basket and Rice Krispie Treat Flower Pops.

  3. Turn heat to low and stir in Cocoa Rice Krispies.
