These would make a very nice treat to give to someone special...or just keep all for yourself! Reviewed for February Beverage Tag '08.

  3. These are super tasty and easy to make! I used a mixture of corn flakes crushed and rice kripies since I did not have a lot of rice krispies on hand. Perfect sweet treat when you dont feel like spending a lot of time on a dessert.

I grew up a military brat, too, and have lived in Kentucky, Florida, Maine, Germany, Holland, and South Carolina. I am now a SAHM of 2 children. I love to make and try new recipes. My mom was the one that primarily taught me how to cook and then I have taught myself to cook various other things via trial and error. I love sharing with others how to cook and ideas. :) I am an active part of our church - teaching SONday school, singing in choir, etc. I wouldn't be here if it weren't for my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. He is my Rock and Salvation. I praise God for all that He has done for me. I love to meet new friends and enjoy talking about cooking, kids, etc. So feel free to drop me a Zmail! :)
