This holiday season, use your baking skills to give back to your community with Kellogg's and MisterKrisp’s #Treats4Toys campaign. For every person that posts a Rice Krispies Treat photo on social media (Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook) with the hashtag #Treats4Toys, Kellogg’s will donate one toy to Toys for Tots, a charity that provides children with Christmas presents.
“Instagram and the internet have given me so much,” MisterKrisp said. “To be able to give back through social media with the hashtag #Treats4Toys… that felt like a perfect partnership.”
MisterKrisp utilizes social media platforms to both share her creation and inspire them. She specifically likes working with and modifying popular emojis to help connect with her audience. For example, she recently posted a Rice Krispies Treat of the dancing twins emoji decked out in holiday attire.
“Emojis are actually changing the way that we communicate,” she explains. “It’s kind of a language that everyone can understand.”
Jessica Siskin, aka MisterKrisp, not only creates Rice Krispies Treats to inspire charity, but also is changing the way we look at the marshmallow treat. In only three years, she’s captured an Instagram following of 34.7 thousand followers with her incredibly creative, artistic treats. From emojis to full depictions of Thanksgiving dinner, MisterKrisp has no limits when it comes to creating Rice Krispies Treat art. Despite the fact that she’s a culinary sensation, she admits she still doesn’t know how to cook.
“Rice Krispies Treats are my bread and butter,” she says. “I can make any dish out of Rice Krispies Treats.”
In fact, her favorite treats to create are the ones that look like her favorite foods, like her ramen Rice Krispies Treat or her cheese plate Rice Krispies treat.
Her advice for others looking to create beautiful Rice Krispies Treat masterpieces is to look for inspiration everywhere and to have an open mind. And while she sometimes garnishes with other candies, she still admits that she sticks to the recipe on the side of the box.
“When people compliment the taste, I’m like, ‘Thanks I just followed the instructions!’”
