Rice Krispie Picnic

This giveaway is now closed and the winner has been notified. Thanks to all who entered!

It’s that time of year again – time for another Rice Krispies Making Memories challenge from The Motherhood. This time around, team Kansas City has been challenged to create a unique Rice Krispies treat that would be suitable for summertime fun. Well, what better way to celebrate summer than with a ant lovin’, watermelon eating, burger tasting picnic!

Team KC (Kelly from Kansas City Mamas, Jenn from Super Jenn, Julie from My Kansas City Mommy & I) had a little too much fun with this challenge. I love these ladies…they know how to have a good time and were able to make me laugh when I really needed some time to let loose and laugh. We may or may not win the challenges, but I consider myself a winner because I’ve been given the chance to make some really wonderful friends.

OK – I’m done with the sap now. On to the picnic. Our picnic creation included our signature Tangy Watermelon Rice Krispies Treats, the cutest Rice Krispie Treat burgers and some little ants who had to march right over and join in on the fun. Make sure to scroll down below the giveaway details for our signature Tangy Watermelon Rice Krispies treat recipe.

    I love the rice krispie burgers, how creative!

    My favorite food to eat at a picnic is probably Italian Pasta Salad. Yum!
