~Raisin Rice Crispies Treats~

Raisin Rice Crispies Treats
So many times I have purchased a bag of marshmallows.  So many times I have plans to make a batch of Raisin Rice Crispies Treats.  But, so many times I was not quick enough and my DH had opened the bag and started snacking on those yummy white puffs and soon they were gone!  Well, this week I was quick enough!  Woohoo!  This is a snack that we have enjoyed for so many years and I make occasionally! 
  • They are so easy to make. 
  • However, read the directions first.
  • The key is to work quickly!  :)
  • After cutting into bars, store in fridge.  
  • Before eating, microwave a bar for 7- 9 seconds to warm slightly!
