There really is nothing earth shattering about this recipe. There probably isn't even in need of sharing a recipe because it's just that easy. But even though its one of those things everyone may have heard of, rice crispie treats most likely will get you to smile. I loved making these with Joel and I think I even channeled The Baron's inner child when I saw him grab one [or two, maybe even three] the day I made these. But recipe aside, just the fact of making these for my boys and them helping me out in the kitchen is reason enough to smile. Hope you have a wonderul Father's Day weekend with loved ones and remembering those paternal loved ones that have passed on too. :)
