      I agree, the homemade are much tastier, in my opinion and fun to make with the

      kids. Once in a great while, if Shop Rite has a good sale and I have a coupon,

      I’ll pick up a box of the pre made ones for the girls as a quick grab snack.

      But, I’m very stingy when it comes to buying those individually wrapped junk

      snacks…can’t see spending so much for so little. I’d rather hand them an

      apple, anyday.

      I think they turn out better handmade, too.

      At Christmas, I bought the frosted Rice Krispies, and they turned out

      great- it wasn’t a very noticable difference, but they tasted good. I

      have some red sugar sprinkles, which would look good sprinkled on top

      while the marshmallow is still gooey. At Christmas, I added some red

      and some green.

      You can also make so many different varieties- I’ll add chocolate chips

      to melt in with the marshmallow, or add it to the cereal for chocolate

      chunks in it.

      Darn, now I’m in the mood for it, and I don’t have the stuff to make

      it! 😉

      Treats for my hubby though. He loves RKT and I can’t figure out why

      anyone would spend the money to buy the ready-made ones at the stores.

      They are incredibly simple to make from scratch.
