I love making crispy rice treats because they are quick and easy. They allow me to be creative with the added ingredients. This recipe is a hit, especially at picnics and bar-b-ques. It's great for when you want to make a snack in the summer without the heat of using an oven. Enjoy!

Note: I buy the pineapple at my grocery store that has a serve yourself section for candies, nuts and dried fruit.

How to Make Tropical Crispy Rice Treats

Step-by-Step

  1. Spray a 9x13 inch baking dish with cooking spray. Use a paper towel to coat it well. Also spray one side of a piece of parchment paper cut to the size of the pan. Set aside.
