Chewy, crunchy, buttery and marshamllow-y Rice Krispie Treats are one of my favs and reminds me of Halloween!
As kids, we usually dyed the mixture orange and molded into a pumpkin shape then quickly devoured.
I try to avoid artificial colors now and wanted to improve the nutrition on these tasty treats so I was inspired to create a healthier version of this classic treat by nixing the dye, unhealthy fats and loads of sugar.
I healthier treats!
