Rice Krispies Treats for Toys

Monday, November 18, 2013


During this holiday season, Kellogg’s Rice Krispies cereal is encouraging families to turn delicious treats into toys for children in need across Canada. For every original photo of a Rice Krispies treat uploaded to RiceKrispies.caKellogg will make a donation of $20 to The Salvation Army, up to a maximum of $30,000. The Salvation Army will use this donation to buy toys for children in need across Canada this holiday season.


Using supplies we had received in our Rice Krispies Treats for Toys kit, our family took some time over the weekend to make a toy-shaped treat using the Kellogg’s Rice Krispies squares recipe. We selected the car-shaped toy from the five new Rice Krispies recipes available on RiceKrispies.ca, since my son loves cars like crazy. Plus, it was much easier to build than the Rice Krispies 'gingerbread' house we had attempted last year. My son helped out by counting out 40 large marshmallows...



...while my daughter measured out six cups of Rice Krispies


Following the steps in the recipe to make the car was easy. For the tires, windows and headlights, we tried using saltwater taffy but found it quite sticky to work with. We added some red icing for details. And then we devoured it after snapping a photo. You are invited to do the same and share your photo on RiceKrispies.ca. Enjoy!


Disclosure: Kellogg's sent us a Rice Krispies Treats for Toys kit through the Kelloggers Network program in the hopes that I may share my experience. Any opinions expressed in this post are my own.

    1. Let me tell you, it isn't easy working the sticky stuff. And don't use taffy. I kept getting flat tires and they would stick to the cutting mat. Let me know once you have a photo. Would love to see what you come up with!
