A Fun Graduation Food Gift (and graduation party treat)
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.

Rice Krispie Treats works for parties as well. Cut them up into bite-size pieces.

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.
