I made a double batch because of the amount of people that I needed to serve. I used half regular rice krispies and half fruity pebbles and they were a big hit. I have also used cocoa krispies and in the marshmallow mixture I added a 1/2 teas of almond extract- this works well with cherry extract also- all of these versions were big hits.

I've made these for Halloween with orange extract and orange food coloring. I cut them round and put a jack-o-lantern face with black frosting and green tinted frosting for the stem.

I have used lemon zest with my rice krispies while cooking and as a topping. It is a really good treat in the summer thats refreshing.

I love these Rice Krispies treats, but I like to use the Fruit Loops or fruitie cereals. Any cereal will work. Chocolate flavors are good too. Just an option. Mix and match..

Added a couple tablespoons of Peter Pan Creamy peanut butter to the mix while melting the marshmallows. I got a thumbs up from the gang!

I love these treats but I would like to ask a favor that you don't send these treats with peanut butter to school since a lot of kids are severely allergic to peanuts. My son has a severe food allergy to peanuts and he often eats rice treats that I make for him. It is so hard to keep him safe. I would be devastated if someone made rice treats and he would eat them because he thought they were ok just like the ones mom makes at home for him. It would be so easy to camouflage the peanut butter in these treats. Please think of other children.
