Revisiting Rice Krispies and a $100 Giveaway!

Remember these critters?  Welcoming their cute little faces back to the blog can only mean one thing; it’s time for another Rice Krispies competition!  With the rising mercury and school free, lazy long days officially here, the new theme for this round is… you guessed it, favorite summer pastimes.  As we prepare to introduce our newest entry into the mix, I wanted to take a minute to reflect back on our recipe from the first round.

When you strip away the feathers and facial features (apologies to my furry and feathered friends) , what you’re left with is a refreshing and simple lemonade rice krispie treat that can be shaped and molded to your liking or simply cut into squares and served up as is.  As you can see with mine below, I cut them into letters and had a little fun with my picture.  I’ve attached the basic recipe at the end of this post, so feel free to whip up a batch and let your own creativity flow; if you can keep from eating them all first, that is.

We’ll be looking for your support and votes again soon over at the Rice Krispie’s Facebook page, so get ready.  In the mean time, inquiring minds want to know… What’s your most creative idea for serving up rice krispie treats?   Let me know in the comments below for a chance to win a $100 Visa gift card!  Other entries can be earned through the usual methods:

For additional chances to win, be sure to visit my teammates blogs where they’ll be giving away gift cards as well.

The contest will close on July 4th and the winner will be announced on the 5th.  Stay tuned for our newest summertime entry in the next couple weeks and good luck!

Update:  After throwing the comments into random.org and hitting go, the winning comment was number 1!  Congrats Mami2jcn!
