That looks like so much fun. I have only made rice krispie treats once. My kids had no idea what rice krispie treats even were lol

I used to make them more often when my oldest was younger. We would often just make a very small batch – just enough for us to each have some. It was a fun, quick way to make a treat/dessert.

Now that is the ONLY way to make rice krispies treats!

P.S. I eat them hot too … with my fingers … before anyone else sees me.
