    A Fun Graduation Food Gift (and graduation party treat)
    avatar
    Elaine Magee, MPH, RD posted:
    It's graduation time for high school and college and I wanted to prepare something fun and festive to accompany gift cards. A couple years ago I discovered that Rice Krispie Treats could be dressed up for this occasion.

    * Make big rice krispie treats and decorate them by mixing in or topping them with M&Ms in the color of their school. (You can find M&Ms in all sorts of colors at craft stores or online)

    * Wrap each rice krispie treat with plastic wrap and then add the gift card and tie them together with ribbon in the school color.

    LOOKING FOR A GRADUATION PARTY TREAT?
    Rice Krispie Treats works for parties as well. Cut them up into bite-size pieces.

    HEALTHIER TREATS?
    Use the usual Rice Krispie Treat recipe but substitute a less fat margarine and look for more whole grain rice krispies.

    Thanks for the great idea, love using school color M & M's.

    A few weeks ago I was helping make a graduation cake. We were going to mold rice crispy treats in the shape of a rolled diploma, but did not have all ingredients on hand.

    We ended up using large marshmellows held together end on end with toothpicks and icing it. Then made a bow out of a fruit roll-up.

    Not as healthy or even pleasantly edible (too sweet) but it worked great.
