We have caught baseball fever over here. We live near Kansas City, and the Royals are on fire, and the whole town is on board – it’s been so fun to watch the team go so far! I love all that baseball brings – summer nights, America’s pastime, you know, it’s great.
It’s led to countless games in the yard and the fun of my Kindergartner joining up on his first tball team. There’s nothing better than watching tball – it’s a riot! Below is when he fielded the first play of the game – I love how they all celebrate every play!
So along with tball comes tball treats – half of the fun of the game is the after-treats. I have a fun idea of baseball treats for you today. Kellogg’s® Rice Krispies Treats®, Major League Baseball® and legendary shortstop Cal Ripken, Jr., are teaming up to help families unlock the fun this baseball season with their favorite snack. This fun Baseball Rice Krispies Treats idea is so fun yet doable – and it is a huge hit with my kiddos! I’ve got a quick tutorial for you (even video, what what?!) on down…
You can enter the Kellogg’s® Rice Krispies Treats® presents MLB Play Catch with Cal Online Instant Win Game here: http://bit.ly/1EP602i. You can pick up a box of specially-marked Rice Krispies Treats through July 1, 2015, and enter the promotion code at KFR.com/CatchWithCal for your chance to play catch with Cal Ripken, Jr., during the 2015 MLB All-Star Week – – great advice from Cal Ripken, Jr that applies to so much more than baseball: “As long as I can compete, I won’t quit” – life lesson right there!
To get started on the treats, you’ll need Rice Krispies Treats®, candy melts, and sticks.
Here’s the super-fast video tutorial….
First up, cut the treats in half. Then shape that square into a flat circle. Insert a stick into the edge as shown:
Next melt your candy melts (I put mine in the microwave in 30 second intervals, stirring in between). The colored candy melts for the ball laces (I used blue for the Royals, but red is traditional) I melted and then scooped into an icing bag so I could pipe it onto the treats.
Take your shaped treat…
Dip it in the candy melt…
and place on wax paper to dry. Note, I wasn’t aiming for perfection, and that’s okay!
Then you just pipe on the baseball laces. That’s all there is to it! See, you can do this!
A little behind the scenes – I just hooked my phone to a potato bucket to grab that video you saw – –
The treats will be a hit!
Almost as fun as sliding into home plate 😉
