You may have guessed it by now, but I really love rice krispy treats ;). For me, it’s really hard to beat a regular ol’  rice krispy treat – but that doesn’t stop me from trying haha. What makes this recipe special is the addition of pudding mix. I have to admit I was skeptical about adding pudding mix to rice krispy treats – pudding mix?? really? Yes, really! Really, really good!! I also happen to be a huge butterscotch fan too, which doesn’t hurt anything ;). And is there really a dessert any easier than rice krispy treats? Dessert in 5 minutes without heating up the kitchen =). These would be perfect for a bake sale or even your next get together with friends or family because they are so portable and everyone loves them. I also made a version with nutella, espresso, and chocolate pudding mix – do I really need to say any more? I didn’t think so. Enjoy!
