Who would've ever thought that a cereal as boring as Rice Krispies could ever create one of the best treats ever?  And here's where you can buy some of the best in WNY.

Rice Krispies is a cereal that is kind of meant for healthy eating.  It's not loaded with sugar...it's made of rice.  But we still found a way to make it unhealthy.  We load it up with butter and sugar...and my goodness is it good!

Call them what you will.  Whether it's a Rice Krispies treat, a marshmallow treat, a marshmallow square, or for our friends in Canada a Rice Krispies square, they're all the same thing. It's honestly one of the easiest things in the world to make.  You melt butter...melt some marshmallows in that butter, then add Rice Krispies cereal.  You put it in a pan then cut it into squares.

It is as simple as it gets, but man are they good.

There's just something about them that takes you back to your childhood.  How many school parties did kids bring Rice Krispies treats to celebrate their birthday instead of a messy cake? Remember them bringing in the plate covered in cellophane?  It was like what every kid did back then (before all the snacks had to be pre-packaged).  Yet, somehow, we all still got excited for that treat.  It was like pizza day, only made of sugar.  It's because it was a quick little treat that kids love and it was easy to whip up in a hurry.  It doesn't cost a ton of money and people love them.

Back then, we had to wait for mom to make them and they were special.  But now, you can get them all over the place and I dare to say, these are probably even better than your mom made.
