Fun and Pink Crispy Rice Treats {And a Pampered Chef Giveaway!}

This is a post is written on behalf of Pampered Chef, but my opinions are 100% mine. 

One quick look around my kitchen will let you know that I love Pampered Chef. I tried figuring out how many Pampered Chef items I owned and I lost count. Yes, I own that many.

After fifteen or so years I now have quite a large collection of Pampered Chef items. From the stoneware to the measuring cups and spoons, I love it all. I love to use it in my kitchen and I love to give it as gifts. 

When Pampered Chef contacted me recently about working with them on their Help Whip Cancer campaign, it was easy to say yes.

And when I found out it involved a giveaway for my readers, the answer was definitely yes. I know you all love Pampered Chef as much as I do.

Here is a little information about the Help Whip Cancer campaign and how you can help.

  • Since the campaign’s beginning in 2000, Consultants and customers have raised more than $10.2 million to Help Whip Cancer®. Make a Difference in May and October with The Pampered Chef®!
  • Funds raised by the Help Whip Cancer® campaign are distributed to breast cancer education and early detection programs across the country.

Here’s how you can Help Whip Cancer®:

  • Host a Fundraiser Show! - When you host a Help Whip Cancer® Fundraiser Cooking Show in May and/or October, up to 25% of Show sales will be donated to the American Cancer Society®.
  •  Purchase pink products! - Pampered Chef® pink products are available in May and October. We’ll contribute $1 to the American Cancer Society® for each one that you purchase.

You can also find out more information about this campaign and the message by visiting the Pampered Chef website 

Since the Help Whip Cancer campaign is to benefit the American Cancer Society I was asked to turn one of my favorite recipes pink in support of breast cancer awareness. When I think of Pampered Chef recipes I think quick and easy. Their recipes are recipes for everyday cooking. So, I knew I needed to turn one of my favorite quick and easy recipes pink.

I decided to involve my kids on this one and make something fun for them. I decided to turn a favorite crispy rice treat pink. And it could not have been easier.

One of the reasons I choose to make these was that it is one of my favorite things to make using my rectangular stoneware baker. The stoneware baker is nice and deep, so it makes a nice thick treat that my kids love.

This is pretty much your basic crispy treats recipe with the amounts changed to fit the deep stoneware baker. And with a few drops of food coloring added.

Nice and thick and delicious! Wouldn’t these be fun for all kinds of things. Parties, kids treats, etc. My girls loved them pink.

 

Now for the giveaway!!

Pampered Chef is giving one of my readers a set of their Pink Products.

Two of my favorite Pampered Chef items are in this giveaway. A paring knife and the clips. My mom gave me one of their paring knives years ago and I still use and love it. The clips, well those are good for just about anything. From bags of chips and crackers to flour and chocolate chips, I used them on everything. I think you will love these as much as I do!

One reader will win a set of pink Pampered Chef items just like the one pictured above.

All you have to do to enter is leave me a comment. You can leave any comment, but I would love to hear what your favorite Pampered Chef item is.

  1. My all time favorite PC product is a measure cup I ordered years ago. I don’t even know if they carry it anymore. It is great for measuring sticky stuff like honey, molasses and even really wet ingredients like mayo, ketchup,etc. I’m also a huge fan of their stones.

  2. Kate Nash says:

    If it weren’t for my PC can opener, we would go hungry on busy days. But when were grilling, Iwe need the rings and thermometer.

  3. Vicki Roberts says:

    Thank you for doing this. I have lost my mother and 4 aunts from Breast cancer. my sister and I have had lumps removed and I know it is just a matter of time for us. Last year my cousin (one of my aunts daughters) was also diagnosed with breast cancer.
    I love your sight, as I get many wonderful sounding recipes. I am a cook at a local hospital and enjoy cooking very much. I have yet to try all the ones I want as there are so many to choose from. I don’t know how I can pick out a favorite pampered chef product as there are so many good ones to pick from. My kitchen has most of the products pampered chef sells as well as some that are know longer available. I use my pots and pans every day along with my knife set and cutting boards. I love my stones too! I love everything, but if I have to pick one, I guess it has to be the Mix’n Chop. I really could not live with out this one. Coming home from work and leaving the house at 5:45 in the morning I forget to get the ground beef out. This handy little tool sure save my life as it is a miracle worker when it comes to thawing and cooking ground beef in a hurry. Thank you again! Vicki Roberts

  13. Like the batter bowl a lot, measure, mix, cover…comes in handy many times.

    I have so many favorites. I can’t pick just one. I use my Rectangle baker all the time. When I’m not using it, I use my large bar pan, my 15 inch round stones (used them tonight for pizza. I love having 2 stones in my oven when baking pizza. We have 5 children. 3 are teenagers, and often have friends over. 4 pizzas is the minimum) I also use my batter bowl, can opener, measure all cup, & bread knife very often.

  30. My favorite Pampered Chef item… the garlic press. I love that thing!

  31. Marsha H. says:

    I am not familiar with the Pampered Chef products, but its always good to have a paring knife handy.

  32. I love my Pampered Chef stoneware! Thanks for the wonderful recipes you share.

  33. after 17 years, I still have the batter bowls given to me at my wedding

  35. I have many Pampered Chef favorites but I use my cutting boards and spatulas the most.

  36. I have quite a few Pampered Chef items. My favorite would be the Easy Opener. I even carry one in my purse with me!

  37. Brenda H says:

    I LOVE PC products too and wish I had many more! My favorite is the garlic press – I use it all the time and can’t imagine having to cut up garlic. I also like their little prep bowls – so handy for little leftovers.

  38. My favorite Pampered Chef item…….I don’t know how I can pick just one! I love the stoneware – I have many different sizes and shapes, the measuring cups and spoons, the little brown scrapers, the glass bowl & lid, and on and on…..but I think that my most valued item is the Nylon spiral whisk — I have never seen anything like it anywhere else, and it is invaluable when making gravy or cream sauces since it gets everything off the bottom of the pan. Mine was accidentally broken recently by a sweet young son, so I will need to get a new one soon.

  39. One of my favorite pampered chef items is my wooden tamper that pushes down and to the sides the crust in a mini muffin pan so I can fill the center

  40. M y current favorite is my mandolin. My favorites change depending on what I’m cooking a lot of.

  41. There are so many new items since the last time I looked at Pampered Chef! I love my mix n’ scraper, pizza stone, measure all cup, mini serving spatula, and on and on.

    • I love my PC cookie press. The barrel is nice and big and makes nice large cookies. They are perfect for my Christmas assortments.

  42. Love, Love, Love Pampered hef. I think my favorite is the spatula. I use it to cook with in the frying pan or use it to scrape my mixing bowl. Thanks for including us in your Pampered Chef give away!

  43. My favorite pampered chef item is my stoneware

  44. I love this stoneware! I want another pizza pan!

  45. I enjoy the stone 4 mini loaf pan.

  46. Sheila Laurence says:

    I love the mini spatulas. I have two, and bought one for my mom also.

  47. Use the cookie scoops, mini roller when rolling out pizza dough and the mix and chop when cooking ground beef

  48. I love so much pampered chef stuff. I think my favorite is the mix n chop. Log it!

  49. Elizabeth says:

    I love my vegetable peeler

  50. It’s hard to choose just one! Since I use it everyday, I’ll go with the can opener. I love that it leaves the edges smooth :)

  51. These are great! I have a friend 36 y.o just went through double masectomy! That would be rough!
    Cancer isn’t picky! Young or old, we should be grateful for our health!

  52. I have never used anything by PC, believe it or not, so this would be a great introduction to them. Thanks.

    I love my stoneware.

  57. Martha oliver says:

    Love pampered chef, had a pizza stone that I used not only for pizza but made the most awesome cookies with too.

  58. My beautiful Mom will be at my home for Mother’s Day dinner, she will enjoy these pink treats for dessert! I use my silicone mat from Pampered Chef for rolling out pie crust, rolling out cinnamon rolls and kneading bread dough. The stoneware pizza pan and cookie sheet are great for crispy fries and chicken nuggets. My latest love is the pampered chef meat tenderizer, I use it to crush nuts or natural sugars; it also is a great help pounding chicken into nice cutlets for baking or frying.

  59. Stephanie LaFond says:

    So hard to choose just one. I love the batter bowl and the cookie scoops. I also have a piece of stoneware that is a four loaf mini pan. I love that for quick beads!

  60. Tina Ford says:

    I love their round pizza cooking stones…and their spatulas.

  61. I love my cookie scoop and my husband loves his ice cream scoop!!!!!

  62. Thank you for being a part of the Help Whip Cancer campaign!! After considerable thought, I’d have to narrow it down to my Mini Loaf Pans (I have FOUR…I sell Tastefully Simple and one mix makes four cute li’l loaves of beer bread, etc.!)…and I LOVE my pizza stone!

  63. Susan Broughton says:

    I would love any product from this company. All my kitchen items were given or I bought them when we first married which is now over 30 years ago so I think it is time to replace them with some new ones! I could really use a Chefs knife though!

  64. Patricia says:

    I love my cooking spoons that my mom gave me years ago. Thanks so much for your recipes and this giveaway!

  65. I love my pitcher that has a mixer-thingy built into it!

    Mine is my pizza stone that I have had for 17 plus years.
    I use it for everything

    this would be fun to win, I like the pampered chef micro pots the little black one , I use for soups, etc in the microwave to heat up stuff. I think they are one of my favorites.

  71. I love the pampered chef apple peeler slicer corer. It makes making apple dishes so much easier!

  72. I love my p.c. bread knife-great for homemade loaves!

  73. Betty Sievert says:

    Love the pink! Save the ta-tas!

  74. Christine Matheny says:

    Happy Mother’s Day!

  75. This seems like a silly favorite item, but it’s their pan scrapers. They are so effective at cleaning what would be an otherwise very hard pan to clean :)

  76. Renee Taylor says:

    I have always loved the Pampered Chef paring knives. I recently purchased the large cutting board and love it also.

  77. Amy Barnhart says:

  80. I enjoy my large nonstick frying pan with glass lid. I cook in this so often. I think it may be 13″.

  81. I love gadgets, so probably the best gadget is the apple peeler/corer. Of course their cookbooks are great also!

  82. janice obrien says:

    I really like their can openers

  83. I love pampered chef products. Have had consultants borrow my stones to show how they “should” look after years of use.

  84. Jodi Pavlik says:

    For sure the Large Bar Stone!!

  85. Leslie G. says:

    I love reading your blogs and your recipes – great for a busy mom! As for pampered chef – i love everything i have purchased from them, but my favorite items are my can opener (which i think i am about to wear out after 6 years of constant use) and large stone casserole dish – perfect for a family size portion of lasagna!~ So i would love to add to my collection with their pink products! And coming from a family with 4 generations of breast cancer, thank you for supporting such a great cause!

  86. Kimberly in NC says:

    I love my stoneware. I have 3 different ones and they all get used regularly.

  87. Crystal Hankey says:

    My absolute favorite Pampered Chef items are the can opener (no sharp edges) and the salad sissors – I like to use them to cut up boneless chicken breasts that I have cooked in the crockpot. Just put the chicken in a really large bowl or measure cup and chop away. Easy and fast!

  88. I can never have enough of their spatulas/scrapers – I think we have 1/2 dozen and sometimes they’re all in the wash!

  89. Meg Hilton says:

    The Mix-n-chop, all of the stoneware, pizza cutter, egg slicer, all of the nylon tools, the quick-stir pitchers, cool and server trays, etc, etc. LOVE Pampered Chef.

  90. I’m with you on loving Pampered Chef, Lynn! My favorite item(s) are the stoneware products. Everything I bake in them from brownies, to quiche, cakes, cookies, breads, turn out wonderfully uniform in size and baked to perfection. I was just thinking about going out to their site to order a jelly roll sized stoneware piece.

  91. My favorite pampered chef products are the measuring spoons and cups. I would love to try the bread/muffin pans sometime though! I’ve heard great things.

  92. My favorite pampered chef product is the garlic press!

  93. Stoneware and can opener! I also just got the cheese knife and it is super!

  94. I love all Pampered Ched products! My favorites are the mini spatula and the garlic press.

  95. I think my favorite Pampered Chef item is the can opener with the spatulas being a close second.

  96. I don’t have any of the Pampered Chef products but have heard great things about them. I would really like to try the pizza stone.

  97. Wow, not sure I can narrow it down to just one thing. Maybe the stones, no maybe the batter bowl, no the clip, no … on and on it goes! I love the pink set and would be tickled if I were to be chosen to own it.

  98. I like the Pampered Chef paring knife.

  99. I have never tried pampered chef but I hear the pizza stone is awesome!

  100. Deb Sherman says:

    Love Pampered Chef…pizza stone and apple peeler are what come to mind at the moment.
