    This is a revamp of an old post.  I redid both the pictures (because they literally hurt my eyes to look at, they are that bad!) and the recipe.  The original uses corn syrup and I wanted a different option.

    So, I thought why not make them like a rice krispie bar and use mini marshmallows!  Genius!  It worked beautifully.  You still get plenty of sweet with those salty chips.  If you would like the original recipe click here.  They taste great, I just wanted a non corn syrup option and pictures that are a little easier on the eyes.

    The big game is tomorrow!  Just wondering if you have all your snacks and treats planed out.  If not you need to include these guys.

    Like in they are an absolute must.  They are quick, easy and very addicting. <- Just thought I would warn you.

    Well, I am going to keep today’s post short.  I have some sick kiddos to take care of and get well before this baby decides to come! 🙂
