Give Those Rice Krispie Treats A New Twist

Rice Krispie Treats

Rice krispie treats are a simple and fun dessert that most kids and adults love. Mixing together marshmallows, butter and Rice Krispies cereal is all it takes to get a pan full of yummy gooeyness. Although this simple recipe is great just as is, it can be fun to get a little creative at times and just to see you can come up with. Think about it though. This can just be a blank canvas to a more delicious and eye popping treat. Although, this may not be one of the most healthiest treats, but it doesn’t hurt to have a guilty treat every so often as a couple of these.
