About

These Rice Krispie Treats are so good that we have made them not only once, but twice, most recently for dessert on our recent trip with a few friends to the desert. When one's 14 year old son takes a bite and the eyes go wide, accompanied by a "Wow... these are awesome!" comment one knows she has a hit! Follow this up by a horde of kids and adults all scrambling for the largest piece accompanied by smiles of pleasure, and we know that the hit wasn't luck, it's that good.
