I’m a total kid at heart when it comes to these crispy, gooey treats. Mom made them when we were growing up, and I still can’t resist them. A batch does not last long at our house, so it’s probably a good thing that I don’t make them very often.

There are many, many ways to fix these rice crispy treats, but I like the simple version—no nuts, no peanut butter, no brown rice. Well, actually there is one thing that I like on top of my treats…Nutella. Spread a layer of that heavenly hazelnut chocolate concoction on top, and all self-control goes out the window. It makes a tasty treat that is good for your soul, if not your hips!
