A Spicy Perspective

Fruity Rice Krispies Kabobs

The summertime Kellogg’s Rice Krispies Treat Challenge is upon us. After much krispielicious experimentation, Team Asheville is ready to share our entry.

Fruity Rice Krispies Kebabs

When TheMotherhood.com announced the theme of this season’s challenge “favorite summer pastimes”, we knew COOKOUTS were at the top of our list.

Summertime cookouts are something children and adults alike look forward to. Whether at the lake, in the neighborhood park, or in your own backyard, cookouts can be enjoyed by all. Family cookouts bring loved-ones together to appreciate a good meal, warm sunny weather, and most importantly, each other.

Summer Rice Krispies Treats

At our cookout, we served these sensational Fruity Rice Krispies Kebabs! Fresh fruit flavors make original Rice Kripies Treats really snap, crackle, POP. We used powdered drink mix to impart the essence of strawberries and kiwi into the treats. Then we threaded fruity Rice Krispies Treat cutouts and fresh fruit, onto wooden skewers, for a fun and HEALTHY snack or dessert. These kebabs are a wonderful addition to any cookout; no cutlery required!

Fruity Rice Krispies Kebabs are a fantastic family-cooking project. Children of all ages will enjoy cutting out the Rice Krispies Treat shapes, pressing them into sprinkles, and lacing them into patterns on skewers. At this family cookout, we served the fruity kebabs in a fresh halved watermelon to display the troop’s handiwork. The watermelon made an easy and festive summertime centerpiece that took just minutes to prepare.

  41. While I love the nostalgia that a rice krispie square ignites, I don’t like the “stuff” they are made of anymore. This is the healthiest option you could have chosen. Bravo to you! We really need to get our kids off the sweet treats from my era – and yours. In my era, the manufactured, processed, purchased foods and treats were “the best”!
    Thankfully, the times are changing back to homemade, delicious and nutritious. And, darn the attraction of institutions like Kraft and their money and prizes.
