Rice Crispy Treats. Yum! Can you really ever go wrong making Rice Crispy Treats?
So I found this new rice crispy treat recipe that I had never seen before so I wanted to try it out. I know, you are thinking, a new recipe? No such thing! Well this recipe has an extra ingredient added in that makes normal rice crispy treats a little extra special, and even harder to resist eating the whole pan!
And of course, I couldn’t resist making them festive! So I added in green food coloring and cut them into shamrock shapes using a shamrock cookie cutter. Didn’t they turn out so cute?
