We love playing video games in our home and just recently, Frank and I had the opportunity to check out the Forza 4 Video Game for the XBox! Usually it’s the kids playing video games, so this was the first time that Frank and I really had a chance to sit down to play a game together. Plus, it was the first time playing the Forza 4 video game on the XBox! I couldn’t believe how clear the picture was and how great the sound was as well. To make our “gaming date night” that much more special, I whipped up a batch of Rice Krispies Treat with M&Ms. It was super easy to make and yummy!
Forza Motorsport 4 is the definitive racing game of 2011. The game delivers beautiful graphics, an awesome variety of cars, tracks and challenges with ground-breaking social interaction all while letting players revel in their passion for cars! I always thought Frank was a good driver, but was amazed that he completed both races with ZERO errors! It is definitely a fun game to play together!
What’s even better than the Forza Motorsport 4 is the Forza Motorsport 5, which will be available at Walmart next week. Right now, you can even pre-order the Forza Motorsport 5 video game with only a $5.00 deposit. When you do purchase your Forza Motorsport 5 Game, be sure to participate in the M&Ms Buy, Snap & Redeem Promotion! It’s super easy and will begin on November 22nd.

M&Ms are one of my personal favorite treats. I especially love the Peanut M&Ms! So, I not only picked up a package of the Plain M&Ms for our Rice Krispies Treats, but I also picked up a package of the Peanut M&Ms for me to snack on! Now for the M&Ms Rice Krispies Treats Recipe.
