For little kids: Let them sprinkle in the apricots, flaxseeds and sunflower seeds and shape the mixture into logs or balls. For big kids: Let them spray the mixing bowl with cooking spray, stir the marshmallow mixture and stir in the puffed rice.

Ingredients

Directions

Spray a large metal mixing bowl with cooking spray and set aside.

Cook the marshmallows, butter, agave and 1/4 teaspoon salt in a medium saucepan over medium heat, stirring frequently, until the marshmallows are completely melted and the mixture is blended, about 3 minutes. Remove from the heat, add the puffed rice and stir to coat with the marshmallow-butter mixture.

Transfer the rice mixture to the prepared bowl and sprinkle with the apricots, flaxseeds and sunflower seeds. Stir with a wooden spoon or hands lightly coated with cooking spray. Form into 8 logs or balls (about 1/2 cup each). Let cool about 30 minutes, then wrap tightly in parchment or plastic wrap.

Never leave a child unattended in the kitchen. Limit the child to tasks that are safe and age-appropriate.
