Shipping homemade rice krispie treats in college care packaegs?

Recommended Posts

I have found a scrumptious recipe for salted caramel rice krispie treats. You make a salted caramel sauce on the stove (butter, dark brown sugar, whipping cream, little corn syrup, and salt), then stir in the mini marshmallows, then pour over rice kripies. I would LOVE to include these in a college care package to ds. Usually I bake things on Sundays, and his packages arrive for pick-up on Fridays after I mail them on Mondays. Any reason NOT to send these? Any thoughts on the best way to package them? I have done some googling and there have been issues of marshmallows melting and sticking to saran wrap if they are individually wrapped. That is how I usually send brownies - already cut, individually wrapped in cling wrap, and then packed into Ziploc bags. I was actually thinking of just pressing them into a disposable aluminum pan (the recipe calls for an 8 x 8), wrapping in Saran wrap, and just mailing the entire pan with a plastic knife. Not even cutting them myself.

 

Any and all experiences with and wisdom about such an endeavor would be greatly appreciated.

This works great.  I have sent rice krispy treats this way many times and they arrive in great shape.

 

I always ship Priority Mail and the 8x8 and 9x13 pans fit perfectly in certain pre-printed boxes.

Send twice as much as you think she needs and keep hers in a secret hidden compartment (like in styrofoam "padding") that only she knows about so she can have some all to herself. ;)

When I was a kid these were not available prepackaged in stores--I think there was a recipe on the back of the Rice Krispies box to make them.

Unfortunately, however, I don't have a copy!

 

But my inclination would be to wrap them individually a aluminum foil.  It doesn't seem to stick like plastic wrap, and the packaging on the storebought ones looks that way.

I think you should make several batches of treats so you can try all of the different suggestions offered here, and then send them all off to my house so I can test them and see which wrapping method worked best.

 

I only offer this as a public service so your college kid isn't disappointed by poorly wrapped Rice Krispie treats, not because I plan to eat every single one of them.

 

I am such a giver.

 

:D

Thank God for you.

 

That is one of the biggest reasons kids leave college...poorly wrapped Rice Krispie treats.

 

:lol:

Those sound yummy! If you want to wrap individually, I'd opt for the special non-stick foil.

But really, the pan, uncut, sounds fine, as long as you put it in a zippy (that's our new name for ziplock bags), so they won't go stale.
