Spice Krispies Treats

This year we have a kindergartner. I made the mistake of baking cookies and bringing one with me in the car for her when I picked her up the on the first day just in case. Long story short, now she expects a special treat every afternoon when I come get her. *cue head shaking* After a week or so I was getting pretty sick of making cookies. Enter Spice Krispies Treats. Oh my gosh. These are serious trouble you guys. Like, I think I could eat an ENTIRE pan by myself. They are full of gooey marshmallow, vanilla, warm fall spices and butterscotch chips. Try to eat just one. I dare you. Chances are you’ll be sneaking them like me behind the pantry door and mumbling “no, I’m not eating anything in here…” too.
