Crazy Rice Krispy Treats

Looking for a sweet treat to satisfy that sweet tooth? I know I have a sweet tooth that NEVER ends. It is hard sometimes to avoid the sweets in my house even if I tried. So, I must give in, however moderation is key as in everything in life.

I try to incorporate good food in food that is not so good, and as most of you know I try to hide veggies and fruit in my kids’ food. Sometimes it works, other times, it’s a big fat NO GO! I knew I couldn’t go wrong with rice krispy treats, no one I know doesn’t like these tasty treats, do you?

I added some secret ingredients to the delectable ingredient list, but shhhhh, no one knows but us!

1 bag mini marshmallows + a few extra reserved for topping
8 cups rice krispy cereal
2 bananas, mashed
1/2 cup peanut butter (creamy or chunky)
1/2 cup Nutella
