Rice Krispies Treats Turn into Toys – Holiday Baking with a Charitable Twist #TreatsForToys

by Janice

This holiday season, Kellogg Canada will donate $20 to the Salvation Army for each toy-inspired treat a Canadian uploads to RiceKrispies.ca. The Salvation Army will, in turn, use the donations to buy toys for children in need. (Please note that this post is part of a promotional campaign with Rice Krispies.)

As the holidays approach, I am sure all of us parents hope to keep our kids from morphing into green-eyed toy hoarders, obsessed with what presents they want to get, and help them focus instead on what they can give to others.

Rice Krispies Treats for Toys is win-win for everyone involved. Families get to have fun together in the kitchen creating toy-inspired Rice Krispies Treats, while helping other families who are in need financially this holiday.

My six year old Olivia and Susan’s daughters, Julia and Sophia, helped me make (and eat!) a Rice Krispies Treats Robot using the Rice Krispies Robot recipe. I am definitely not a professional cake designer, but I think our robot turned out to be pretty cute.

As Simple as Making a Rice Krispies Treat:

  1. Create a toy-shaped treat (You can design your own or make one of five new toy-inspired Rice Krispies recipes available on RiceKrispies.ca.)
  2. Take a photo of your treat
  3. Upload your photo to RiceKrispies.ca
  4. Kellogg’s Rice Krispies will donate $20 to the Salvation Army to provide toys for children in need

We hope you all have a great time creating your own toy-shaped Rice Krispies Treats this holiday season!
