After a full day of Father's Day fun....and cooking brunch and then cooking for a packing a beach picnic and then cleaning up after everything I was sort of done.
Yet, Iike every other Mom with school age kiddos you kitchen duties are never done!
Tomorrow is Ry's first Teddy Bear picnic with his kindie class and I promised to provide treats.
Rice Krispie treats are something he adores so that was my first ingredient check and it was all good so those got made. Next I decided on one of my childhood faves so I whipped up a batch of those too. Since it's the time in the school year where there are endless parties and such where baking is required, I thought I would share this recipe for other Mom's in a pinch to provide and fulfill their 'Motherly' duties.
I started my treat making at 10 or so and it's now 11:23 and everything is done and packed up and the kitchen is tidied. Not bad for dual treats for a class of 23 little teddies.
p.s. White Chia seeds are packed with nutrition and I sprinkle them into rice krispie squares and they are never noticed.
As for the cocoa quickies you can cut the sugar in the recipe substantially. I also added raisins as I love raisins and it's an extra hit of fibre and some vitamin C for the children.
Chia hides nicely in them too but I didn't have dark chia seeds and I didn't want to push my luck and risk discovery by a picky eater which would most likely lead to a treat riot.
Use a cookie scoop to make perfect balls with the cocoa quicky mix then drop them into cute cupcake liners for easy passing out and snacking.
