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!

  1. OK, A week ago I just made something very similar, so don’t hate me when you see it go live 🙂 Rice Krispie treats and unicorn sparkles. Perfect pairing!

  2. Ah, Lisa Frank. I owned so many of those products I owned so many of those products when I was a kid. I did have a unicorn notebook or something, as well. These treats look tasty, & I am sure that my kids with making them this summer.

  3. How fun are these treats? I want to make them for my daughter, she loves these colors and the idea of anything Unicorn but she especially loves Rice Krispie treats! THanks for the fun summertime treat idea.

  4. I made the mistake of showing these treats to my kiddo. Now, at ten o’clock at night, he insists that we make a trip to the store to get the ingredients. Who do you think’s gonna win this argument?

  5. These look like fun and delicious treats as snacks for children. They’re colorful and vibrant, very pleasing to the eyes. Rice krispies also have great texture.

  6. Oh my gosh I love rice krispie rteats and have not eaten them in so long! I need them in my life again and these are the prettiest ones I have ever seen. I bet my daughter would enjoy making them with me for sure! Thanks for sharing, we are so going to make these soon!

  7. Soooooo….as I scroll this posts my kids are like “MOMMY WHAT ARE THOSE???”
    Me: “Oh its nothing” – as i try to scroll past delicious pics and only get inundated with more and more delicious pics!
