Cookie Friday: Rice Krispie Treats
Happy Cookie Friday! I'm still recovering from my numerous trips to the Iowa State Fair last week. During every visit to the fair, I tried to get my hands on the newest state fair treat -- Fair Squares -- which, in essence, were Rice Krispie Treats on a stick. But every time I tried to buy one, they were sold out. Guess they were super popular (maybe because they were $2, when everything other treat was $5 and above).
So I decided to give into my craving and make Rice Krispie treats at home. Yes, I know this is the easiest recipe ever. And no, I didn't add homemade marshmallows or another foodie ingredient. I just made Rice Krispie bars like my mom used to make them -- with generic-brand marshmallows, melted in the microwave.
I did jazz them up with the M&Ms I still had in the freezer from my earlier attempt at M&M cookies. (Notice a pattern here. I like simple, old-fashioned recipes.)
I'm assuming I don't need to share the recipe here. I just followed the instructions on the box.
If you haven't given these a try for a while, make up a batch today. It will take you back to your childhood.
