Snickerdoodle rice krispie treats
A fellow blogging friend, Mike from made by mike, is the brains behind this delicious idea. I enjoy Mike’s blog – his writing, his beautiful photos, and the recipes he posts. And I was really tickled the day he posted his take on Rice Krispie treats! With only the tiniest tweak to the traditional recipe, I ended up with the best cereal treat I’ve ever had. Seriously. I ate three right in a row, just to make sure. My sister will agree, because she made them too, and her family was crazy about them. The frosting is totally optional here, and to be honest, we preferred them without, but it does make them look like something special.
