Rice Krispie Treat Sushi

These are so fun, and too easy! I saw them in a Parents magazine, and tore the picture out, but not the directions. Fortunately, my friend figured out a super simple way to make them!

Prepackaged Rice Krispy Treats
Fruit-By-the Foot (preferably green)
Swedish Fish
Fruit Snacks

Cut Treats in half, and microwave 15 seconds or until pliable. Have fun decorating!

Kudos to Parents magazine!

Coconut Joys

These are basically homemade Mounds...I've lost count of how many times we've made them!

1 1/2 cups flaked coconut
3/4 cup confectioners' sugar
1/4 cup butter, melted
1 oz milk chocolate, melted (I prefer dark chocolate, but both was are good!)
2 tablespoons chopped pecans

In a large bowl, combine coconut, confectioners' sugar, and butter. Form into 1-inch balls.
Make an indentation in the center of each ball (using a spoon handle or similar). Fill with chocolate. Sprinkle with pecans. Place on waxed paper-lined baking sheet. Chill until chocolate is firm. Store in refrigerator. Set out about 15 mins before eating so that chocolate isn't too hard.

Yield: 1 1/2 dozen.

Kudos to Taste of Home Quick Cooking 2011!
Kudos to my sister, Kimmy, for the great pic!
