Creativity!....Easy as 1, 2, 3

Recently I declared that I'm really not that creative. I know it seems like a sham considering I bake custom cookies and all, but I don't feel like I am. So in order to not be faking it anymore, I'm ramping up my creative ways and bringing you along.

It's really rather simple and if I can do it, so can you. (I know it's an overused cliche'.)

Start with something simple - mine?  
Rice krispie treats

Now look at that basic idea and think how can I change it up.

Marshmallows and rice krispies....two rather simple ingredients but with a few quick changes you can take the normal basic rice krispie treats to a new level. 


1. Take out the regular white marshmallows and use a festive color/flavor.

2. Instead of basic, bland, pan squares, dust off a cookie cutter. (dusting one off isn't my problem, it's choosing ONE shape)

3. Add something you wouldn't normally think of doing. In my case it was chocolate drizzle.

And presto 1, 2, 3!

As I said, creativity is easy as 1, 2, 3. I'd love to hear about your "bland and basic" change up. So leave me a comment.
