Rice Krispie Balls and Painted Ornaments

Every year I make goody for the students on my school bus. Usually I will try to make a treat or two, not just buy them on sale at Halloween :) I happened to be watching a Canadian cooking show - the woman is annoying - WAAAAAAAY to perky for me, but she has good recipes. Saw her making these Rice Krispie balls and thought they would be great for the kids. So this was the project for Sunday. The ones with red sprinkles where dipped in white chocolate. The other ones were first dipped in milk chocolate. Each student received on of each - that's 120 rice krispie balls!!

I also paint ornaments for the kids every year. This year I have 2 families of four children each do I found a pattern for this set of four ornaments. I've done them before to sell at craft shows, but I've never done 60 at a time. Don't think I'll paint them again for a while :)

Handed most of the little bags out yesterday - some kids where missing, hopefully they are on today.
Have an Awesome Tuesday!!
