TRICK OR TREATS season Part TWO
Part 2 of 3
When I was a little my mom was my Girl Scout troop leader and for our troop snack she made rice crispy bars. I have loved them ever since. I actually became my oldest daughter’s Girl Scout troop leader and continued the tradition. In my Holiday cookbook's HALLOWEEN section, I feature my “BUGFUL CRISPY TREATS”...I promise they will be a hit with my gummy worm ghoulish garnish. I also share more of my secret tips & tricks to make them easy and extra special
