Here’s a fun spring treat idea you can make with your family! These Rice Krispies Treats® are also perfect for welcoming the warm weather of spring and summer.
Rice Krispies Treats® are so darn easy to make, and who doesn’t like them? I love the commercial when the lady sprinkles flour on her face so it makes her look like she’s spent hours in the kitchen when she brings out her Krispy treats.
Your kids will love helping you make and decorate these delicious spring treats. You can wrap them up for a spring party, or a garden tea. They’d also be fabulous for a Mother’s Day brunch.

Kellogg’s has reduced the sodium content of Rice Krispies to meet current consumer flavor- and nutrition-preferences. Rice Krispies Treats made with the lower sodium cereal taste great without any added salt, but, if you desire, add 1/4 teaspoon salt to the butter before melting. Continue with recipe as directed.
Make them for treats for grandmas, aunts, mother in laws, and good friends for a special homemade Mother’s Day treat.
