Good morning to everybody at Beneath my Heart…
It’s Ruthie from Whats Cooking with Ruthie and I’m excited to share a quick and super yummy treat with y’all this month!
Spring Rice Krispie Treats is a classic recipe
with a bit of a chocolate twist added to it :)
We all need a little chocolate love now and again- right?!

Our family loves this Rice Krispie Treat recipe! It’s SO quick and easy but extra festive when they get all fancied up with a little bit of chocolate.
Spring Rice Krispie Treats will bring a smile to every face that tastes them :)
