This past Wednesday night, Norah had the honor of being Cubbie of the Week in her Awana Bible club. This highly coveted position is on a rotational basis and requires the honoree to lead any lines that are formed, along with other exciting pre-school leadership responsibilities. You also get to bring the snack!
So early last week in anticipation of this privilege, I had begun mulling over possibilities for the snack. I wanted Norah to be able to make it, as that would obviously make it even more exciting for her.
I was leaning toward Rice Krispie Treats, as she absolutely loves them. The last time I made them for her, I used strawberry marshmallows, but I thought we might be able to bump it up a couple more notches by using Trix cereal in the place of the Rice Krispies! I had thought about using strawberry marshmallows too, but there’s only so many artificial flavors a person can handle!
The kids have never had Trix, so I had to think of some way to explain to Norah what we would be looking for at the grocery. Aha! – Rainbow balls! Norah is over the rainbow about rainbows, so this was sooooo exciting to her. We used my mom’s yummy recipe for Rice Krispie Treats.
And this was a crazy coincidence – just a couple days after I had thought of having Norah make these Trix Treats, my sister-in-law Lydia sent me a Pin with… you guessed it – Trix Treats! She thought they looked like a “Norah” dessert. You were right, Lydia, Norah did love these!
