A Big Celebration

Tomorrow is the last day of our March is Reading Month festivities.  We’re planning a little celebration in our classroom to celebrate all the great reading we’ve done this month.  I decided to make Rice Krispies Treats for my class.  No crumbs, no frosting and fast to make. 
For several years I’ve been in charge of our kitchen for Vacation Bible School.  I’ve always made over sized treats as part of our snack menu.  To feed the 200 attendees I make about 24 batches, I double the recipe and it is fun to see the kids react to the jumbo sized snack. 
I’ve found the off brand of the Rice Krispies works just as well as the real thing in this recipe.  The store brand of marshmallows is fine too.  My husband scoffed at me looking up the recipe for something I’ve probably made a hundred times. The off brand doesn't have the recipe on the box.   I wanted to avoid measuring so I did the math for the whole box of cereal.  Ooops, I guess I should have sat down and thought…my doubled recipe is now tripled! 

Oh well, I wanted to have an impressive snack! I think I’ve achieved it, now the lid won’t fit on my cake pan.  I think I’ll call these Rice Krispie Towers!!


  1. Imagine the look on their faces when they see just HOW rewarding all that reading is. I think you will be making memories for them--both falling in love with reading AND enjoying a Rice Krispie Tower.

  2. Mmmmmm sounds delicious! Rice Krispies are always a crowd pleaser
