Rice Crispy Treats

Nunu and Zaira are in the kitchen again. This time making a favorite from my childhood. Rice Crispy Treats! Kids love them. I remember we had a bake sale at school once, and this is what I bought along. They were the first thing to be sold out. Perhaps it’s the small size of the squares packed with sweetness and a chewy crunch, that makes them a nice quick, sweet treat!

These can be made and stored in airtight jars for 5-6 days. The remain chewy and crisp.  You can add some mini chocolate chips to the mixture if you like too.
