Rice Crispy Ice-cream Sandwiches are an easy and fun summer treats kids can enjoy making themselves.
I guess it would be rude taking credit for this one. I had no intention getting crafty with what seems to be the main ingredients in my house hold. Apparently, reading the cereal box while eating breakfast can get one (8 y.o) inspired. Is these a better feeling than realizing you can make your own rice crispy treats?
So yes, this is a very short summary of how this recipe came about. I doubt it will drop any jaws or get any deals from Shark Tank. Nevertheless, it will impress the true CEOs in most homes of the western world: The kids. (And the other child AKA Daddy).
Having said that I will confess and add that this one is for the grown ups. I know, I know making these rice crispy ice cream sandwiches can be a fun activity with the kids. (yada, yada, yada) . But in my mind I kept seeing my friends faces when they realized what they have in store for dessert. You can relate, I’m sure!
