Rocky Road Rice Krispy Treats

Who doesn’t love a good rice Krispy treat? It was one of the first things I made without adult supervision!

They are the epitome of a “treat”. They are sweet and gooey and taste so good.

Recently, I tried a new spin on the recipe and made Rocky Road. It has all the elements of the ice cream; almond, marshmallow and chocolate. It is also a traditional rice cereal treat with marshmallows, cereal and butter. How do you vary your treats?

Rocky Road Rice Krispy Treats

One of the things I love most about rice krispy treats, is their versatility. You can use a different cereal or add-ins and create a totally different treat.
