    Too sweet for us. I think I'd make them again using semi-sweet chocolate instead of white.

    Fun cookie to make. I had some left over rice krispies and wanted something different than the usual RK treats. I used 1/2 white chocolate and 1/2 dark chocolate chips. Super easy and oh so good. I ended up making 2 batches of these because they were disappearing.

    These are a great quick treat. I used 6-oz white baking chips and 6-oz semi-sweet baking chips instead of the 12-oz of white chips. I also used a large saucepan over the lowest heat on my gas stove to melt the chips and then just added everything else to the pot. Worked great. I am going to make another batch and use white chips and butterscotch.

    These Nutty Rice Krispie treats are OUTSTANDING. I made just a single batch last night for our great grandchildren who are coming for the holidays. Now I have to make another 2 batches cause we can't stop eating them. You gotta try this recipe.
