My Leader Yummy – Crispy Chocolate Rolls, Crispy Cornflake Cookies | Receipts
Few kids can turn down a Rice Krispie treat, and this variation can be even more tempting for kids of all ages, and maybe even older folks who are still young at heart.
Instead of pressing them in a pan and then cutting them into squares, these are rolled up like a jelly-roll and cut into slices. Not only do they look prettier, but they have an extra layer of chocolate and peanut butter or chocolate and butterscotch. The treats are ideal for children who want to spend more time outdoors and have a snack with them.
Another treat they’ll love to take with them outside are these crispy cornflake cookies. Plus, if you have a friend or loved one in the military and want to surprise them with a homemade treat, these are perfect for sending.
