A-snappin' A-Cracklin' Pop Just like Fourth of July with Rice Krispies Treats

WINNER UPDATE: Congratulations to Jason Nickolay! Lucky winner of the cookbook giveaway!

I finally got my 1st recipe idea down to an edible dish. To those not on the know, part of being a Brand Ambassador for Kellogg's Rice Krispies Treats is to take on the challenge of creating a winning recipe for the Summer Edition of the Rice Krispies Recipe Box Challenge! Where if lucky, my recipe will be featured in RiceKrispies.com! I'm hopeful - and crossing fingers and toes.

Just like Iron Chef and Chopped, we have a SECRET ingredient! Our secret ingredient which we decoded on Twitter is "cooler" which represent anything frozen or cold. Ok people, seriously, it's a tough one! But I'm pretty confident that this first recipe idea is brilliant! Presenting Rice Krispies Treats Ice Cream cup!

 A very simple, easy to make dessert recipe. Even a caveman can do it!(yes they can!) My fabulous 6 year old daughter was a great helper elf in this mission and we both had fun doing it! Below is the video tutorial which explains and shows the simplicity of the recipe.



Tidbits: The batch made here was half of the recipe which approximately made 6 Rice Krispies Treats cup. You can top the ice cream with anything you want including fresh fruits or syrups (caramel/chocolate). You can also incorporate different flavors to the marshmallow base as desired to add zest to it. Orange worked great on this recipe. And if I must say so myself, this recipe is SO YUMMY in the tummy!!!


The Fun Part: You get to win a Cookbook! One lucky reader of Zen MamaVentures will win one Rice Krispies TreatsTM Cookbook as part of this challenge! See Official Rules Here.
