What is it about S’mores and Rice Krispies that, at any age, you just want some? And at any time of the day? Here, it gets even worse, as blogger and recipe creator, Trish, puts these treats together in one recipe to offer us Smores Rice Krispies Treats Pinwheels. Even if you do not plan on making these today (but you might) check out the photos that Trish has taken as she makes this pretty little snack. The layers of rice krispies, marshmallows, and chocolate are entirely enticing. Kids will love it. When the three layers are rolled up, they create a contrasting pinwheel of marshmallow white and dark chocolate around a blonde crunch of crisp. Fantastic.

Rice Krispies are one of the oldest cereals on the market, developed nearly 100 years ago in the USA. The rice krispies are a blend of rice and sugar formed so that the walls collapse when milk is added to the cereal. The collapsing walls are what make the signature “snap, crackle, pop” sound that made the cereal so famous. And their characteristic crunch is also what makes them so appealing to kids. One advantage to rice krispies is that they are a non-wheat based cereal, so if you have a child who is sensitive to wheat, this cereal is one possible breakfast choice. This entire recipe is actually wheat free, an advantage for kid play dates when busy parents are often trying to find a treat or snack to bring that does not include wheat. Of course, this snack includes sugar, another ingredient many of us don’t want our children over consuming. But a bit of this snack can’t hurt, can it? I hope not, because I’m making a batch myself tonight!Try these pinwheels when you want to indulge in something for your family and not worry about the nutritional ups and downs of our diets. They will love you for it. Find out how to make this recipe and many others at the website, Mom on Time Out.
