Arts n Crafts Day: Sugar Rush

Last week, mummy bought these edible craft kits from a Christmas clearance sale in Cold Storage. She actually spotted them earlier (before Christmas) but found them too pricey!

A few days after Christmas, she went back to take a look again (plus a hint from Aunty Moon who also bought a set). This time, it was too cheap to resist so she bought two boxes for me (both expiring in Sept 2012). She actually wanted to buy more but had second thoughts when she started to imagine me eating junk... sugar, artificial colouring, flavouring, preservatives etc.

Crayola's Teddy Bear Gingerbread Cookie Baking Kit, RM5 (marked-down from RM24.99) and Kellogg's Rice Krispies Treats Holiday House Kit, RM10 (marked-down from RM59.99)

We started off with Kellogg's Rice Krispies Treats today...


The contents in the kit


First, mummy melted the marshmallows with some butter in a pan and stirred in the rice cereal

Next, she pressed the mixture into the house-pan to mould it into the shape of a house. Added a thin piece of chocolate to make the door.

Yay! I'm all ready to decorate my little house!

I had so much fun decorating the house with colourful candies!

Tada! That's my house. The yellow thing above the door and between the two windows was supposed to be a bell.

And this one was done by Koo-koo

Koo-koo was here to play masak-masak (baking, actually) with mummy.

Neighbours...

Let's dig in!

Mmmmmmmm.... hou-hou sek ar! (Very yummy)

The gooey, sticky and chewy melted marshmallow went very well with the rice puffs

Mummy removed all the colourful sweets and didn't allow me to eat them. The gummy jellies (spice drops) tasted weird and I wasn't interested in them at all. We basically just ate the rice cereal with melted marshmallows.

After eating and brushing my teeth, I took a very, very long nap (more than 3 hours!) while mummy and Koo-koo played around with more sugar haha.

Molten chocolate lava cake with Haagen Dazs Strawberry Cheesecake ice-cream (it was over-baked and lava-less but still tasted delicious!)
