Rice Krispies Making Memories- Winter Holiday Challenge

Rice Krispies Making Memories- Winter Holiday Challenge


This week I (Tara) was so excited to be the one to host the fourth and final Rice Krispies Making Memories Winter Holiday Challenge.  We were able to pick anything in regard to what we celebrate for this holiday and since we all celebrate Christmas, we went with a Christmas theme. 

What better way to get excited for Santa than to have a Christmas Krispy Kountdown.  Our special recipe was Ginger Spice Rice Krispies cut into squares, covered in a variety of sprinkles and hung in ornament bags numbered up to 25 for each day of December leading up to Christmas Day! Your kids will love this special treat each day while counting down the days until Santa arrives.

  • 6 cups Rice Krispies
  • Mix of colorful sprinkles
