Classes 1, 2

Please read section descriptions carefully, the judges are obligated to judge accordingly. If the entered item doesn't fit the description it cannot be judged. (i.e. painting vs. drawing or teddy bear vs. any stuffed toy).
Note: The popular “Anything goes” categories have been very difficult to judge fairly, so we have opted not to include them and instead have included a broader variety of choices. Thanks for your understanding.

5 Cups Rice Krispies Cereal             1 1/2 Cups Mini Semi-sweet Chocolate Chips

Melt the marshmallows and butter in the microwave for 1 1/2 minutes or until completely melted, stirring halfway through. While the marshmallows are melting, mix the Rice Krispies and the graham wafer cracker crumbs together in a large bowl. Stir the melted marshmallow mixture into the Rice Krispies.

Line a 10 x 15 jelly roll pan with parchment paper and spray with non-stick spray. Press the Rice Krispies in an even layer to fill the jelly roll pan (or use a 13 x 18 pan).
Spread the marshmallow creme evenly over the cereal layer and top with the mini chocolate chips. Place the pan in a 200F oven for 2 minutes, just long enough to start melting the chocolate chips. Remove from the oven and spread the chocolate evenly over the marshmallow creme. Using the parchment paper, carefully roll the Rice Krispies treat into a tight log. Refrigerate for one hour and slice into pinwheels once the chocolate and marshmallow are set.
