When I was in college my friend went home every weekend and when she returned her mom would send her back with a big batch of Rice Krispie Treats. Her mom made the best Rice Krispie Treats E-V-E-R! I don't know what she did special or if it was just the extra love she put in it that all of us college kids needed but we all would devour them within the first hour she was back at the dorms!
A while ago I was on the Rice Krispies website and found Peanut Butter Rice Krispies Treats. Two of my favorite thing...how awesome is that?! My son and I made them today and well, let's just say that I've eaten half the pan and it isn't even cool yet. They are great!
