Hop into Spring with Kellogg’s {w/ Recipe & Giveaway}

Hop into Spring

It’s time to Hop into Spring with Kellogg’s ~ Compared to the epic winter of a couple of years ago, when we received 17 feet of snow. Yes, you read that correctly, 17 FEET, this past winter, here on the east coast, we escaped relatively unscathed. We had a few snowstorms, but nothing compared to the snowmageddon of 2015.

The sights and sounds of spring’s arrival have been in full force these past couple weeks. The perennials are cautiously poking their heads through the soil and the birds have been singing at the top of their glorious little lungs!

Hop into Spring

My kiddos are older so I decided to make some classic Rice Krispies squares using the Spring Edition cereal…look how cute they are!  Perfect for popping in a lunch bag.

We are so happy to finally feel some warmth in the sun, open some windows, do a little gardening or just sit on the deck relaxing.

With Easter right around the corner, it’s time to think of all the yummy treats we want to make to celebrate.

Thankfully, Kellogg’s has you covered with lots of great ideas for some easy to make treats that the entire family will enjoy. So even when April showers rain down, you can hippity-hop indoors to make Rice Krispies creations like Spring Edition traditional Rice Krispies Squares, Egg NestsEaster Mice, Rice Krispies Easter Flowers or a Large Emoji Bunny!
