Pumpkin Rice Krispy Treats

Happy Halloween Luvs!

I hope you all had a great weekend and enjoyed your Halloween. We had a pretty busy weekend full of excitement and possible new beginnings that I hope to share soon. 

To end the weekend I spent last night making snacks for Zavien’s Kindergarten class for today.  I’ve been having a lot of fun getting creative with his snacks. I’ve done cereal butterfly bags and pencil wafers. 

This time, I decided to go with Rice Krispy Treat Pumpkins!

Here’s what I used

  • Rice Krispy Cereal
  • Jet-Puffed Marshmallows
  • Butter
  • Mini Reces Pieces
  • Green Apple Airheads

Here’s how so did it:

Melt 3-4 Tablespoons of butter in pan on low heat

Add marshmallows (I honestly didn’t measure) and melt (stirring occasionally) on low heat

Remove from heat once completely melted

Add food coloring. I mixed red and yellow to make orange.

Next I added the rice Krispy treats. Again, no real measurement here, I just poured and stirred until I liked the consistencey. After that, I sprayed a little cooking spray on my clean hands and formed little pumpkins.


Once they cooled I turned them over so they would be more round and not completely flat on one side. I added a mini recess piece to the center for the stems and a small piece of green apple airhead for the leaf.

That’s it! Zavien and his class loved them. Oh…hubby did too. Well, that’s all for now.

XOXO

Sissy & Me In The City – Day 4

Happy Labor Day luvs!

Yesterday was filled with amazing food and an even more amazing show! We started the day off with brunch at a restaurant called The Smith. It was a really cool spot with some unique but delicious food.  I decided on the jalapeño cheese grits, eggs and sugar bacon.

Oh my goodness, it was so decadent and delicious! After brunch we made a quick stop back at the hotel and then it was off to Time Square to the Bernard B. Jacobs Theatre to see The Color Purple.


Headlining the show was Cynthia Erivo as Celie, Danielle Brooks as Sofia and Heather Headley as Shug Avery.  The job they did was absolutely phenomenal!  I was blown away by the performance. If you have the opportunity to see it I highly recommend it.

After being thoroughly entertained we caught the subway uptown to Harlem for dinner at Sylvia’s Soulfood Restaurant where I partook in some of the most amazing collard greens, macaroni and cheese, fried shrimp and catfish EVER!  Seriously, it was love at first bite.

After our tummies were full we decided to go back to the hotel and rest where we spent the rest of the night watching football and food network. Sounds boring but we had a lot of fun and some great quality time.

Today we’ll be heading home. Four days was the perfect amount of time. Now, I totally miss my guys and am ready to head back.


I’m so grateful for my amazing hubby who suggested this trip and made it happen for us. My sister and I had such a great time here in the big city. Thanks for following our journey! I’ll be back with more hair and beauty content this week.

XOXO,

TJ
