Chocolate Chip Chex Treats and Holiday Piñata Cake- $10 PayPal Cash Giveaway

FullSizeRenderI love the holidays.  This may be partly because I love to bake and share with others.  We all have holiday parties to attend and many require us to bring a sweet treat.  Here are 2 simple recipes that are crowd pleasers.  

WinCo Foods is a great place to get your baking products.  I love the bulk bins.  You can find tons of what I like to call “add ins” for you cookies, cakes and treats.  

FullSizeRender Chocolate Chip Chex Treats- Holiday Rice Chex Recipe

6 cups Rice Chex Cereal
3 tablespoons butter
4 cups mini marshmallows
1 cup chocolate chips

1. Melt butter and marshmallows together.
2. Combine Rice Chex and melted marshmallows together in a bowl and stir. Add chocolate chips and stir again. A lot of them will melt because of the warm marshmallow.
3. Grease baking dish and put the mix in the dish. Grease your hand and push down evenly in pan.
4. If you would like you can add chocolate chips to the top and press down so they stick to the mix.  I got the chocolate chips in the bulk bins at WinCo Foods.

FullSizeRenderThis is a delicious recipe and a fun twist on a favorite treat.

piñataHoliday Piñata Cake

1 box Betty Crocker Yellow Cake Mix (prepared)
1 box Betty Crocker Devil’s Food Cake Mix (prepared)
2 cups Milk Chocolate M&M’s
2 Containers Betty Crocker Frosting of choice

1. Prepare the cake and let cool.
2. Trim so the layers will be even.  I alternate between the yellow and Devil’s Food cake for the layers.
3. Cut a circle out of center layer. You can use a cereal bowl as a stencil.

5. Place the top layer on and frost the cake.

FullSizeRenderMy daughter thinks piñata cakes are pretty much the best things ever. They are really fun and festive.
