Salted Caramel & Hazelnut Rice Krispie Treats ~ Pearls + Girls

It’s back to school season, which means new supplies, new clothes & NEW RECIPES! It’s definitely a toss up, but can anyone guess which one is my favorite? 😉

I love to surprise the kiddos with something yummy after a long day of pumping neurons.  Sure, I could pick up a package of cookies from the store, but there is something about homemade treats that makes my girls grin from ear to ear.  Store bought cookies beware, you ain’t got nothin’ on mama’s homemade Salted Caramel & Hazelnut Rice Krispie Treats!!! 🙂

Did I mention that peeps go crazy for these treats at tailgate parties, too?  Even ‘big’ kiddos love homemade treats! 😀  Enjoy!
