Assalamu-alaikum (peace be upon you) readers,

Friday night, it was time for our mini-men to take their turn in the IYG kitchen to put their culinary skills to the test (and prove the tweenz weren’t the only skilled chefs present in the youth group). Young children love sugar in many different forms – pure chocolate, candy, sugary cereals, and…DESSERTS! Can there be a more mini-men friendly dessert to make at home other than Rice Krispy treats? We think not! After splitting our youngsters into two groups, our mini-men raced against the clock (and one another) to prepare their very own homemade Rice Krispy treats. A light dusting of butter, a cupful of Rice Krispy cereal, and a whole lot of marshmellow creme later…we had ourselves one delicious snack. I know, I know…you don’t believe us. Well as they say, the proof is in the pictures (check out our young men in action below!):
