Paint Brush Krispie Dipping Station "Paint Brush Project"

Make your favorite incarnation of rice krispie treats or follow trusted recipe on the back of the box!

Allow the mixture to cool from hot to warm, apply a little butter to your hands liberally, mold the treats into rectangular shapes and place on parchment, wax or plastic wrap ( to keep from sticking to pan). Let cool.

Before the treats harden completely, insert short Popsicle style sticks/spoons about half way into your treat.

Heat the chocolate melts in a microwave safe bowl in increments of eight to nine seconds and stir between heating. Once the chocolate is completely melted, dip the Krispies Treats into assorted colored chocolate and place back on lined sheet to dry.

Pajama Party Pancake Bar 

Ingredients: (or follow your Pancake Box Mix) 

1 cup pancake mix 

1 large egg 

¾  cup water

1 TBSP oil

Directions:

Mix Baking & Pancake Mix, egg, water and oil until there are no lumps. Choose a pancake variation below and follow the directions for add-ins. To cook pancakes: Pour 1/4 cup batter onto a preheated, lightly oiled griddle (medium low heat, or 350º for electric griddles), flip once. Serve immediately

 

Variations:

Chocolate Pancakes - Use mini chocolate chips. Minis are great because they are small enough to hide inside the batter and not burn on the pan. Simply sprinkle on top of raw batter after you have poured it out onto the pan, but before you flip to cook on the second side. Mini chips melt easily if you want to add a few more on top!

 

Unicorn Pancakes - Divide batter in half an leave one half plain ( not tinted) take the other 50% and divide into 3 equal portions then tint each; pink, blue & purple.  Drop a heaping tablespoon of base then swirl other colors in.    

Chocolate & Cinnamon Pancakes - Add mini chocolate chips and cinnamon to the batter and sprinkle a little extra on top. Cinnamon and chocolate are a wonderful Mexican tradition.

Chocolate and Orange Pancakes - Add mini chocolate chips and orange zest or juice to the batter. Orange and chocolate are a flavorful combination.

Very Berry Pancakes - Make blueberry pancakes by adding a few berries after pouring out the batter and before turning them. Mix your favorite types of berries together to serve on top. Raspberries, blackberries and blueberries are a great combination.
