Rice Krispie Treat Castle

Continuing our study of the Middle Ages, this week we entered the era of knights and castles. I have really been looking forward to this because of all the great books and projects available. Today we made a Rice Krispie Treat Castle! I originally saw the idea from this blog. We tweaked it a bit, and simplified it. I like simple! We made a double batch of the traditional Rice Krispie Treat recipe and added a bag of mini m&m's, because really, when doesn't chocolate make everything better? :)

We used a sand castle mold for the sides and 4 plastic cups for the towers. (It's what we had on hand).

First time I allowed E near the stove. She did great!

The final product:

And of course the castle needed a little action . . .

History is fun and yummy!
