MONEY SAVING IDEAS FOR THE HOLIDAYS

*Make something like fudge, rice crispy treat or peanut brittle in the large Tree Mold.

Let it set up and then peel out. Wrap in saran and tie a bow around it as a delicious gift.

*Or you can use your creation as an “edible plate”. Wrap it up in saran then put your other baking goodies on top. Wrap the whole thing in cellophane and top it with a bow.
Perfect gift for teachers, neighbors, school bus driver, co-workers or even family.

*Make your favorite dessert or even a quiche in the tray or mold for Christmas morning.


KELLOGG’S RICE KRISPIES TREATS (MICROWAVE)

3 Tablespoons butter

1 package (10 oz) regular marshmallows or 4 cups mini-marshmallows

4 dashes of green food coloring (not needed if using the special red and white Holiday Colored Rice Krispies)

· Using a glass bowl, heat butter and marshmallows on HIGH for 3 minutes, stirring after 2 minutes. (Watch closely to make sure it doesn’t burn.) Stir until smooth. Add food coloring and stir again.
