If you haven’t already noticed, we have a real sweet tooth here at LittleThings, and one of our all-time favorite YouTube chefs, YoYoMax12, does the very best job to help satisfy our sugar cravings.
As you can see from this Layered Peeps Rice Krispies Treats recipe, she doesn’t call her page “The Diet-Free Zone” for no reason! When it comes to treats like these Rainbow Meringue Cookies, she’s the very best, which is exactly why we’re so excited to share the following video.
In this tutorial, we’ll learn how to make Rainbow Jell-O Sugar Cookies that are so gorgeous, they’ll impress everyone you know…and so delicious, you’ll leave them begging for more!
