I’ll miss those summer sunsets but I’m so ready for fall!

The transition from a LEISURELY summer into a hard-working school year can be ONEROUS, but I find it can be made easier with the help of some sweet treats. I am a big fan of cooking gourmet food, but every once in a while, I HONE my inner kid and whip up brownies or chocolate chip cookies or in this case, marshmallow cereal bars (Rice Krispies Treats), which instantly bring me back to my childhood. This recipe requires only three ingredients and takes about ten minutes to prepare. If you live in a dorm like me, you know that bringing these to class will be a huge hit. Enjoy!
