Growing up, Rice Crispy Treats (or Rice Krispie Treats) were a major staple in our house whenever it came time to prepare for a bake sale! I don't think I realized as a kid that my mom likely made these because they're so, so easy. There is practically no cooking involved, just melting of the marshmallows and mixing it all together - boom. Make these for your next BBQ, summer cookout, or any time you want a quick and easy sweet treat!
