I made Rice Krispie Squares last night with my daughter who is almost six. This is always a fun time of bonding with my daughter. She loves to stir the marshmallows as they melt. She reads the instructions, tells me how much to put in and helps to measure. The ability to have this time with my kids is what I love about being a SAHD. The other day my daughter was cooking at kindergarten with a mom helper that knows I am a SAHD. The mom asked if she cooked with daddy, to which my daughter responded “Yes, I help him make cheese sauce for tortellini.”. Thank you DD.
Rice Krispie Squares
- 250g bag of mini marshmallows
- 1/4 c margarine
- 1/2 tsp vanilla
- 6 cups Rice Krispies
First butter a 13×9 inch pan and a rubber spatula. This make spreading everything out easy since it sets up so quickly. Melt the Margarine over low heat in a large pot. Add the marshmallows and stir until melted. Remove from the heat and add the vanilla and Rice Crispies. Stir until all is coated. Put in the pan a spread out with the buttered rubber spatula. Allow to cool.
This batch lasted a grand total of 19 hours and baby dudes loved them. Sticky baby!
