I did not have any wonderful plans for fall break this year. I worked Thursday and Friday as usual, but it was very nice to be out of school. My fall break did not really begin until Sunday, when I went shopping. My mom and I went to the mall, because the “new and improved” Belk’s has reopened. It was a little disappointing, because it still looks like Sears on the inside. However, they were having a big sale and we definitely did some major shopping!
This week I am helping my little sister make treats for her class. I spent a long time looking on different websites for a fall treat that would be easy to make twenty kids. After many different suggestions it was decided that we would make Rice Krispie Treats. I found the cutest recipe on Pinterest for us to make after school today.
These treats take Rice Krispie cereal, butter, marshmallows, and food coloring. The steps are very simple and are listed below:
- Put yellow and red food coloring in batter to make the Rice Krispie Treats orange
- Roll treats into a ball
- Place a tootsie roll in the top, while warm, to look like a stem
- Place a piece of a fruit roll up on the side, to look like a leaf
- Let cool, and these treats should look like little pumpkins!
I am sad fall break ended so quickly. However, the semester is flying by! I cannot believe that next semester I will be a senior.
