As much as I love them, I don't actually make Rice Krispie Squares that often. I always think that they're more complicated than they are to make, when really, they're easy! There are like, 3 ingredients. Can't get much easier than that, can it?
Okay, so these Rice Krispie treats actually have four ingredients. Sorry if that's a bit overwhelming. But I promise, the end result is totally worth it. They're really cute and festive, perfect for Christmas. I wonder is Santa likes Rice Krispie Treats...
