Well if we’re being honest, I hope the Unicorn trend never ends!

The thing is, I’ve been enmeshed in it since my childhood – when I wrote in my Lisa Frank notebook and watched The Last Unicorn before going to sleep in my rainbow sheets, while surely dreaming about unicorns, rainbow sprinkles and pink icing.

Rice Krispies Treats

My mom and I have this thing where our senses are super-strong. I guess it’s an all-around sensitivity. We’re extra ticklish, and don’t like extreme temperatures. We can smell things from a mile away, and we have been formally or informally diagnosed as “super-tasters.” I’m sure you can imagine how that is. One pretty cool symptom of it is how much the little things matter. It really does matter what sprinkles you use in a recipe, and what brand of marshmallows too. Color matters, and I swear it tastes better anyway – and you’ll be amazed at how much you can elevate a recipe with one added ingredient.

Let’s talk ingredients. I get my summer party recipe ingredients at Target!

Summer is all about parties for us. I’m a July baby and my firstborn, Scarlet, is too! Des was actually due in the summer as well, but came a bit early in late spring. We throw a lot of parties this time of year. I think this will be the best year yet, because Cassidy has outdone himself with the chicken coop and the strawberry gardens. We are ready to entertain and put together some amazing recipes. I’m talking Rice Krispies treats filled with Keebler Cookies, and topped with chocolate!

Now that the weather here is somewhat consistently spring-like, I’m so excited to make these for more than one occasion! It’s pretty amazing what you can do with Rice Krispies Cereal from Target. Not only do we love it as a breakfast cereal (for me with a splash of cream in the bowl), my kids get excited to help with recipes. It’s because they enhance our recipes.

How much fun are these? You should have seen Scarlet and Des’ eyes light up when I was preparing them!

I had fun with the white chocolate. I tend to use a little more butter in my Rice Krispies Treats, which makes the white chocolate topping seep into the treats as a whole. If you want them as more of a garnish/topping, use less butter.

You can see how they are chock full of Keebler Chips Deluxe Rainbow cookies!

Beauty and the Beast Cogsworth Treats

Do you have kids? Are you planning a party? This #recipe for Cogsworth Treats from #BeautyandtheBeast is the perfect #party recipe! And it's easy to do too!

I was just thinking – remember in college when Thursday night was a bona fide party night?

Does that still exist? Please tell me it still exists. Of course I never partied, because I had first period classes on Fridays of my senior year – when Senioritis usually sets in. Since I didn’t drink at all then (or still), there were no hangovers at least. Besides that, I didn’t declare my major until the summer before my senior year, and you don’t call six journalism classes in one week “Senioritis”! As if Senioritis also entails Dean’s List, Phi Beta Kappa, studying on weekends, and choosing boys over drinking.

Hey, we all have vices. These days, I stick to treats.

Do you have kids? Are you planning a party? This #recipe for Cogsworth Treats from #BeautyandtheBeast is the perfect #party recipe! And it's easy to do too!

Des started the school year with three days of preschool and one day at his beloved daycare. Over time, the distance from Wednesday preschool until the next day he had it – Monday – stretched too far and too wide. He had Preschool Angst. So we added Fridays to his schedule, but then his other things suffered. He was too burnt out to do four days of preschool AND a day of daycare, and he was also growing weary of going to his grandparents’ house every other Thursday. So Thursdays are now our free-for-alls. We go on adventures together. I figure I’ll only get to do this so much until full-time kindergarten begins.

I’m in denial that he no longer looks like this:

So that’s what brings me to party Thursdays. When you’re a blogger like me, somehow, generally you have the bulk of your work between Monday – Wednesday. I do sponsored posts on Fridays, brand-willing, or that’s a day I write for myself. Lately, I’ve needed to write for myself more than once a week. I’m up to 1-4 times a week! I hope you like it. I needed to mix it up, quite like Des did too. Thursdays are party days, I hereby decree, and party days need party treats, I also hereby decree.

Do you have kids? Are you planning a party? This #recipe for Cogsworth Treats from #BeautyandtheBeast is the perfect #party recipe! And it's easy to do too!

My Beauty and the Beast movie tickets have been purchased for tomorrow night with Scarlet and her best friend’s family, and I’m pretty psyched to sit down and let the visuals dance in front of me. I always did love Cogsworth, which is why I love this treat. I know it looks pretty intense, but I assure you that you can make them too! So hereby declare your party day, and go make some treats! Or see a movie! Or dance with your underwear on your head, like Des does. Mix things up, party style!
