There’s nothing like throwing a party to brighten up your summer. Summertime is all about the sunshine, family, friends and most importantly fun. One of the best parts of having such a huge family is there’s always birthdays, get together’s and ‘let’s get together just because’. I’m pretty sure our family is so big there isn’t one month in the year that we don’t have a reason to get together, and I love it.

This past Saturday was all about having fun and getting out of the house to spend time with the family. It was perfect timing to get together for it was my nephew’s birthday, and I wanted a reason to make these fun party treats. Who can have a party without M&M’s® or M&M’s® Rice Krispie Bites?
This M&M’s® Rice Krispie Bites are just a tad different from your plan jane Krispie Treats. These are made with not only M&M’s® but also with cake mix. Sounds tasty, right? Actually I know I’m right so I would love to share with you just how you make these fabulous treats.
First things first. Ingredients. Head over to Walmart and pick up your M&M s®, stick butter, yellow cake mix, vanilla, Rice Krispies, marshmallows, and a mini muffin pan.
How Too: Melt 3/4 stick of butter in the microwave, stir in 1/2 bag of 10oz bag of marshmallows for an extra 30 seconds, stir till melted together. Mix in 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla, 2 cups of Rice Krispies and 1/2 cup of M&M s®. Place in your mini muffin pan and press down. Remove from pan when cool.
Depending on how sweet you like your treats you can add the frosting in which case you will need butter, confectioners sugar, vanilla, and milk.
How to: Mix all ingredients together. First 1/2 cup of soft butter, 2 cups of confectioners sugar, 2 teaspoons of vanilla and 1 teaspoon of milk. Blend until smooth and top on Rice Krispy treats. Don’t forget to add your M&M’s® to top off for decoration.
Aside from all the fun treats we had on our party table we also decided it would be fun to have a little cookout. Burgers and hotdogs for the kids topped off with Dr Pepper® Cherry 2-Liter to wash it all down.
One of my favorite parts of our parties or get-togethers would have to be when we’re all in the kitchen together making jokes, talking and telling stories of how our week has gone.
My sister wasn’t too sure about all the sweets but when I pulled out the SNICKERS® Ice Cream Bars she couldn’t resist. I love being able to make everyone happy in some way or another.
As far as the party table went I liked the idea of having a fun color drink to wash down all our deserts. This is where Skittles® comes into play. You see when you separate the Skittles® by color, add in your favorite lime drink the Skittles® turn your lime drink into that color. Perfect fun way to wash down the rest of your summer fun party treats.
The family will always be family, but not only do I consider them to be my family but my best friends. We always have fun times together with or without the kids. Summer is such a fun time of year, and I will be sad to see it go. SO live it up while you can and throw yourself an amazing bright summer party and take lots of pictures for your memory books.
