Riced Crispie Treats, Grandma's

Kathie Carr


Grandma's cokbook would not be complete without the original Rice Crispie Treats recipe. She made these every year at Christmas. She would sometimes add raisins, chocolate chips, or M & M's.

On Christmas eve the family would descend on her house and eat up the traditional meat balls she made, cookies, and Rice Crispie Treats. Those are special memories.
