Happy Birthday sweet Emmett!
Tuesday, January 15, 2013
So what's a mom like me suppose to do when my oldest comes home from school saying he's had a bad week and things aren't looking up? Well it's simple I turn to treats. They are the answer to every bad day or situation, right?
I think part of his bad week is because it has been raining none stop for a week. No recess for a boy can get to you. So we decided to make umbrella rice crispies to help us get over our rain blues. And to make it even more special he decided to share them with his friends at school.
|While we were at it, we wanted to "brighten" the day for |
Wyatt's preschool class too! These are the plain ones.
|We also made a peanut butter batch, our favorite.|
Combine 1 cup sugar and 1 cup karo syrup in saucepan on low heat.
Dissolve sugar and once it boils add 1 1/4 cup peanut butter
then pour over a bowl of 4 to 5 cups rice crispies.

It was our turn to bring the team snack for Ethan's basketball game. We decided it would be fun to try these. They were simple to decorate but all the baking and prep took time. I was glad I only made 12.
Backboard-cookie (I used a snickerdoodle pack I had on hand.) I cut the bottom so it sat flat on the table.
Basket-mini cupcake frosted white.
I piped the orange lines on first then used chocolate to glue the backboard onto the cupcake. I added the chocolate ball after that. I found these balls around Easter time last year and kept them in my freezer.

Happy 2nd Birthday Lucy!!
Just a FYI for next time. It did ball up after a minute so you may want to use ganache.
