Rice Krispies Pops

It is officially baking season! One of my favorite things about this time of year. I love baking and creating festive treats to take to work and reward my hubby with after a long day at work. It is so nice to cozy up with a yummy treat after all the errands are done and dinner is cooked. The crisp air and dark nights make it perfect for staying in and baking! This recipe is one I created after seeing the popularity of "Cake Pops" everywhere and with my love of Rice Krispies Treats I couldn't wait to try it out. They don't look very pretty, but they taste  super yummy!
