Author Notes: These Rice Krispies Treats are all grown up. Sweet, crunchy, and slightly chewy--just like the ones you ate as a kid, but these treats are savory too with a surprising kick.
For road trips I make these in a 9×9-inch pan and cut them into 3-inch square monster treats. For cocktail parties I use a 9×13-inch pan to create bite-sized squares that are perfect companions for a glass of bubbly. Want to glam them up a bit? Try drizzling the squares with melted white chocolate.
