Indulgence Moment: Cranberry White Chocolate Chip Rice Krispies

When I crave sugar, I tend to gravitate toward a quick and easy something that I can munch on all through the day. Super healthy, huh?? Well these, my friends, are one of my absolute favorite indulgence moments. Cranberry white chocolate chip rice krispies take your average rice krispies recipe to the next level.

A little warning, we tend to go a little crazy when these are in our kitchen - the pan is empty within a day! So maybe double the recipe... just to be safe. ;)
