Although the new school year began months ago, this week my boys began a new chapter in their little school lives. You see, this school year hasn’t been easy for our tween or for that matter, all of us. However, after months of coaching, talking, praying and applying to different schools in our area, they boys were accepted into an amazing school. This news alone was enough to put a BIG smile on faces and because I always want to see my babies (well, not so babies anymore), smile. I decided to head to the store and purchase everything they would need to make a delicious after school snack to commemorate this occasion.
Be Happy Cereal Treats
My boys love, love, love cereal treats. So, preparing them a special snack that involved some kind of cereal was not a hard to do task. To make these truly easy Be Happy Cereal Treats, all you need are the following ingredients: 3 tablespoons butter or margarine, 1 package (10 oz., about 40) Marshmallows, 6 cups Cheerios cereal, Decorating gel and Assorted candies.
