Rice Krispies treas are a family favorite around our house.  Hubby doesn’t like many desserts, however rice kripsie squares are one his top choices and they always seem to disappear quickly! I always make sure to keep the ingredients on hand to whip up a batch.  Using a muffin tin you and your little helpers can quickly transform rice krispie squares into rice krispie nests.
