Simple, sweet Rice Krispie Treats

By Lou Ann Thompson - Country Cooking

Hello! With my garden keeping me busy this time of year, I don’t have a lot of time to spend in the kitchen making elaborate desserts, but we still like something sweet.

I always turn to a quick and easy simple little recipe that just hits the spot as a sweet treat. Everybody seems to like this, and it disappears quickly. Also, it’s a nice little lunch treat for your little ones that’s heading back to school.
