Recap & Loaded M&M’s Rice Krispies Treat Recipe

Winter in Kodiak has been dragging by. Last year we had a lot of snow and a lot of sunshine during the Winter months but this year it’s just been gray, rainy and gross. I’m hoping and praying that since it’s been such a mild winter that means we’ll have a beautiful summer! I’m crossing my fingers that we’ll actually be able to wear bathing suits on the beach this year.

On Monday, Matt was home for MLK day and we finally had a sunny day! We love to get outside and do something on the rare occasions that this happens during the winter months. We took  Madison and our dog, Riley, down to the beach to get out their cooped up energy. Matt and I love watching them play and enjoying the time in the sunshine.

This past weekend Kodiak had an insane wind storm with hurricane forced winds in some places on the island. Because of the crazy winds and rough seas, there were hundreds more seashells on the beach than normal. Madison loves bringing us seashells she finds and trying to throw them back into the ocean and Riley will normally try to chase after the seashells that are thrown. Matt and I get a huge laugh out of that happening.

After our beach adventure, we were starving for a sweet snack. I’d picked up some Valentine’s themed M&M’s at Safeway that day, so I decided to whip together these Loaded M&M’s Rice Krispy Treats.

    I think it’s adorable that your daughter throws the shells, and your pup brings them back. AND my mouth is watering just looking at those Rice Krispie treats. Do you deliver? Lol
