Cookies and Cream Rice Crispy Treat Recipe

Lolli here…

The fact that I love baked goodies should come as no surprise to those of you who know me…but I don’t always love the time that it takes to make them at home. I’ve always been a fan of rice crispy treats, both for the taste and for the ease of making them. Rice crispy treats are one of the least complicated and quickest desserts that you can make, and are always a crowd favorite.

I recently discovered flavored rice crispy treats – a revolutionary idea! – and have been trying all sorts of varieties of the classic stand-by treat (my kids and I have fallen in love with cinnamon roll rice crispy treats). This past week, I needed to bring a treat to a Mother-Daughter activity with my 9 year old daughter, and figured I’d try some Cookies and Cream Rice Crispy Treats. They were a hit!

Haha! I chose to just enjoy treats for the taste and ignore that other factor. ;)
