Rice Krispies Treat Ice Cream Bowls {birthday cake edition}

Confession: I came across this fantastic idea in a magazine, but I couldn't find any pictures online, so I'm making my own Pinterest pin...using my blog as a platform for how to make BIRTHDAY CAKE RICE KRISPIES TREAT ICE CREAM BOWLS. Are you intrigued? Here's the how to:

You can use your favorite Rice Krispies recipe, following it until you get to the "pressing it into the pan" part . OR you can make Cake Batter Rice Krispies (Right?!) like I did. Because, let's face it, what's better than cake and ice cream?

The following pictures pretty much explain all that you need to know concerning how to make these mini bowls, but just in case you're confused, this is what I did (comment if you have any questions):

Once your rice krispies are made and hot off the stove, distribute them into your non-stick muffin pan cups, molding them into bowl shapes. Remember, you want the sides to be big enough to hold a couple scoops of ice cream. Allow the mini bowls to set in the pan before removing.

Once your cups have set, remove them from the pan. Melt some chocolate chips in a small microwave safe bowl. Dip the tops of the cups into the chocolate. Set aside and let the chocolate harden. Once the chocolate has set, you're all set to go! Scoop some ice cream into your cups and enjoy!

Cute, right? They're super yummy too.

I'm sorry to say that I don't know how many bowls a full batch of rice krispies treats make. I only made enough bowls for my little family for that night, making regular rice krispies treats with the rest of the mixture. I'm curious to know how many they would make though, so maybe I'll come back and update this blog with the amount. I'm also curious to know if they freeze well. If they do, that would totally make it worth making a big batch of them. I have a feeling I'll be back.

My favorite flower. The peony.

The peony is my favorite flower. They have always held a special place in my heart. For as long as I can remember, they've grown in my childhood backyard. My mom has a plant from the house I was born in, their current house - the house I grew up in - and a plant from my Great-Grandma. As kids, we would watch in awe as the ants crawled over the peony buds, almost willing them to open. It was a chore getting those little suckers off once the flowers were ready to be cut and brought into the house. But it was worth the effort.

My dad has always commented that the flowers smell like old lady perfume. Haha!  I still think of that when I bring the blooms up to my nose for a whiff of Spring. They're such a romantic flower. I wanted them for my bridal bouquet, but they had already stopped blooming by the time June 3rd rolled around. So sad.

Apartment living was dreary for me when it came to flowers. No lilacs, tulips or peonies. When we moved to our current house, I was …

I've had this song in my head for a few days now. I love Kim Walkers voice and the passion that she portrays in this song. McMillan did a wonderful job in writing this song, the lyrics are so profound and encouraging and...different (the "sloppy wet kiss" part makes me smile). I especially love the first part of this song...

He is jealous for me,
Loves like a hurricane, I am a tree,
Bending beneath the weight of his wind and mercy.
When all of a sudden,
I am unaware of these afflictions eclipsed by glory,
And I realize just how beautiful You are,
And how great Your affections are for me.

And oh, how He loves us so,
Oh how He loves us,
How He loves us all

Yeah, He loves us,
Whoa! how He loves us,
Whoa! how He loves …

happy birthday, husband.

My husband celebrated his birthday on Wednesday. It was a very laid-back birthday (per his request). I didn't want his birthday to be boring and yet I wanted to respect his wishes. This year he bought his own present (something that he really wanted and only he could buy since I have no expertise in the world of hunting), so I knew gifts were going to be small and not *that* special. 

I decided to go all out and make yummy food and treats and surprise him with those. I made cinnamon rolls the day before, hiding them in the refrigerator the next morning. The morning of his birthday, I snuck down, popped the chilled dough in the oven and made some coffee, sneaking back upstairs to get the baby up. The smell of them baking+the smell of the coffee brewing was intoxicating and a wonderful smell to wake up to. He was able to enjoy a hot roll right out of the oven with a cup of coffee before heading off to work. They were a yummy birthday treat and I think they were one of his favorite th…
