The road to victory could be lined with Rice Krispie Treats.
On the sixth day of Christmas, Sean Eldridge shared not six geese a laying, but his grandma’s Rice Krispie Treats recipe via his campaign Facebook site.
“They’re a holiday spin on a classic treat and fun to make with the kids!” according to Eldridge’s congressional Facebook page.
After it came out on Facebook, the campaign sent out a similar email blast, except with a link at the bottom to contribute to his campaign.
Eldridge, who moved to Shokan early this year, is challenging Rep. Chris Gibson, R-Kinderhook, in the 19th Congressional District that includes all of Ulster and Sullivan counties.
The recipe makes about two dozen bars but, and no offense to Gram Eldridge, it bears a striking remembrance to the official Rice Krispie recipe. Still, they add red and green food coloring. I’ve attached the campaign recipe below.
