Give To a Family In Need Simply By Making a Treat #treatsfortoys

Rice Krispies Bunny

The Holiday season is upon that and that brings on many fun family activities, like baking and making Rice Krispies treats.

Last year was the first time I took part in Rice Krispies Treats For Toys program and I’m beyond thrilled to be participating again.

Many families (mine included) make Rice Krispies treats for our holiday baking, so why not shape it into a toy and help give kids wake up to gifts on Christmas morning.

Rice Krispies Treats For Toys

 

As I showed you earlier, I made a robot last year (and a pretty awesome robot at that). This year I wanted to make something cute so I opted for the bunny. I wanted to make it 3D and standing (just like the robot) but my supplies were not co operating so I did the best I could with what I had.

I think I had a pretty good end result.Treats For Toys - Make a toy out of Rice Krispies and upload it. For Every #TreatsForToys hashtag, Salvation Army gets $20

I never seem to have butter on hand when I had it so I used coconut oil instead. It worked great! The treats were a little softer, but still held shape well. To decorate I used the following:

  • Smarties: Eyes and bow button.
  • Piping gel: hands, pupils, outlines and to make things stick.
  • Red fondant: bow tie
  • Shredded coconut: Inside the ears and to make a fuzzy belly

My two year old loved the bunny, but he loved eating the Smarties more. Me? I enjoyed more then enough of the Rice Krispies treat.
