Cooper made these this morning. He had a rare time and I took a wee video of him making them, unfortunately the memory card ran out half way through, so you only see the process until the mixing stage (video at end of post). Such a pity as Cooper progressed from smoothing down the treats in the brownie pan to scooping up big spoonfuls of the treats to eat. Tsk, tsk! I did get a photo though.
The video states 6 cups of rice krispies, but I have cut the quantity down to 5 cups in the printed recipe. They were very lightly coated in the peanut butter mix and I felt they could have had more topping.
Only make these for toddlers and children if you know they do not have a nut allergy and remember that honey is not suitable for babies until after the age of one.
Get into the kitchen with your children and have fun.
