Rice Crispy Treats

I cannot remember the first time I ever had a a rice crispy treat. But I am sure it was quite wonderful experience! When our children went GFCF, Emily worried about the fun food she would no longer be able to eat. The first yummy I made for them was GF rice crispy treats. I must admit the cereal I used was less than desirable. :0(   But i kept trying using different cereals over the years.

The other day my BFF Janet called to let me know that she had found Kellog's GF Rice Crispy cereal mark down. Did I want any? Um, yes! She scored 3 boxes! I was so excited!

The exchange occurred at a family baby shower. Oh my goodness it was so hot that day, 95 degrees in Seattle is just down right mean. 95% of Seattle folks do not have a/c in their homes.ous included, I DO NOT DO HEAT. Around 11 pm it was finally below 85 degrees. Emily asked if it was cool enough to make rice crispy treats because she could not wait! I made her wait till in the morning. After all it could count as breakfast right?! :0)  Holy cow were they good! Tasted just as I had remember. The kids were soooo excited.
