Why I love these cookie butter treats
I have never made rice crispy treats before. Ever. In fact, I don’t even really like them that much. At least not the packaged kind (ick). But when I saw Rice Krispies cereal in a French grocery store, I immediately hoarded a box into our shopping cart. Like if I didn’t buy them right then and there, they might never return. You see, there aren’t very many cereal choices for me here in France. I am definitely not a fan of the sweet, sugary cereals, and that seems to be all you can get here. I would choose Crispix or granola over Cocoa Puffs any day. Of course, I’ve been to the store several times since I purchased that box of Rice Krispies, and they are still always there, but I’m still glad I impulsively picked one up because it inspired me to make a delicious and super easy treat. I combined one of my favorite French (okay, maybe it’s really just European) flavors with a classic American recipe. Speculoos + Rice Krispies = wonderful.
