More birthday party treats to take to school

Matthew 18: 2-5
He called a little child to him, and placed the child among them. 3 And he said: “Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. 4 Therefore, whoever takes the lowly position of this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. 5 And whoever welcomes one such child in my name welcomes me.

One year when my child was in elementary school, we decided to make a special treat for the day.  My good friend Lisa and I made marshmallow pops.

Marshmallow Pops
You will need long sucker sticks, you can get these from Walmart or Michael's in the cake making section.  Put 3 large marshmallows on the stick.  Melt some vanilla or chocolate bark.  Dip the marshmellows into the bark and lay on a baking sheet covered with wax paper.  While pops are cooling, spinkle with colored sprinkles and put in refrigerator to finish cooling and setting.  When the pops are cool, wrap in plastic wrap.

Shaped Rice Krispie Treats
Make a batch of Rice Krispie Treats. (Melt 3 tbsp of butter or margarine in a large saucepan over low heat.  Add 1 package regular marshmallows or 4 cups of minature marshmallows and stir until melted.  Remove from heat.  Mix in 6 cups of Rice Krispies cereal.  Stir until well coated.  Spread into a 13 x 9 pan coated with cooking spray.)   When the rice krispies are ready, use a cookie cutter to make the shaped design.  Put on a sucker stick.  Wrap in plastic wrap to complete the package.

I made butterfly rice krispie shaped treats for a Thumblina party.  I added pink and blue sprinkles to the mixture when I added the Rice Krispies to the marshmallow mixture.  They were adorable.  Just use your imagination!!!  An old saying says that people may not remember you but they will remember how you made them feel.. Spend a little time making something special for your child this week.
