Or if you are like me, you like these more than your kids do!!

I am a super nut for rice krispy treats. I think they are so easy and can be put together in a snap. You can microwave your marshmallows or over the stove which ever you prefer. I actually do both methods. It just depends on the mood I am in on which way I chose to do it.

This treat is a continuance of my daughter’s birthday last Friday. I whipped a few things for our little celebration for her. It was just us so I didn’t want to go to heavy on the food especially after she requested  homemade pizza for dinner. I knew she would be getting lots of sweet treats but this stayed with the theme so I just HAD to make them!

Cotton Candy Rice Krispy TreatsNow that I have discovered Duncan Hines Frosting Creations I am hooked. I have used the flavorings for cupcakes and I knew it could totally work with adding it to marshmallows. I was worried that the flavor would not come through after everything was put together but I was wrong! This worked out great and I can’t wait to try other flavors!! ENJOY!
