Rice Krispies Treats have always been a favorite of mine. My mother didn't make them growing up, so I was always really excited to see them served at parties and get-togethers. And you can bet I was super stoked when the individually wrapped packages came out. Just my type of quick mood lift food!
It's great eating desserts I loved as a child, but I think it's even more fun to dress them up for the adult palate. We did it recently with s'mores, and now I'm tackling Rice Krispies Treats. It only takes a couple minutes to go from tasty kid treat to delicious grown-up dessert with these Strawberry Shortcake Rice Krispies Treats. No oven, no stove, and no cooking skills required - but your friends will be impressed nonetheless!
