The recipe for Rice Kripie Treats was different during my childhood. I believe the "original" Rice Krispie Treat recipe listed on the back of the box has slightly changed today. They thought they finally got it right but I'm sorry to say they didn't ;)  The treats I had growing up were good but they could have been better. I have officially mastered Read more [...]
