Family Holiday Traditions

The holidays are a time for family traditions, and one of my favorite things to do each year is creating yummy holiday treats with my junior chef. He inspires me to try new things, and we have so much fun planning, shopping, and cooking together. We especially like to create sweet treats to share with our friends and family. Spending time in the kitchen together is really a bonding time for us.

When we needed a snack to share with our literature group, we decided to whip up some Snowflake Treat Bars with my son’s favorite cereal. These are really delicious, and they make a generous amount for sharing.

Our inspiration for this recipe was to use some items we had on hand, and to make something festive and teen-friendly. We thought the cereal already looked like snowflakes, so we went with that idea.

*Most of the steps to this recipe are easy enough for kids to handle–but just watch out or the hot pot while melting the butter and marshmallows. Above all, make some memories with your kids by spending time together in the kitchen.

Cooking and sharing go hand-in-hand during the holiday season–and our kitchen is a busy place to be!

We found some cute snowflake sprinkles to make our Snowflake Treat Bars holiday festive, but by changing up the colors, you could make these treat bars for any occasion.

      Luckily, that big box has enough cereal in it to make these treats and still have plenty left to munch on–with our without milk! Happy holidays, Cee Lee!
