CLICK AND TREAT for all the nutritional details. I bet you’re thinking that one of the moms in my books uses this recipe. Welp, you would be wrong. 🤣 Believe it or not, a certain dragon shifter who covets emeralds also has a sweet tooth. Nikolas “Nikos” Constantine, Drakon of Clan Kholikikos, will never admit this but he loves Rice Krispie Treats and peanut butter. He’s been known to sneak into a kitchen and make a big ol’ pan of the goodies and being a dragon, you can bet he hoards them all for himself! Though, he might share with Sade. If you haven’t but would like to find out more about Nikos and how he first met FBI Agent Sade Marquis in New Orleans, check out THAT OL’ BLACK MAGIC. It’s available at most on-line books sellers. You know you want to read this because…New Orleans! Dragons! Murder, mayhem, and magicks! And everyone’s favorite FBI MAGICAL Unit Special Agent. 🥰

    • Silver James says:

      This type of treat has a lot of names but there is a registered trademark and copyright on “Rice Krispie Treats”, and since I copied the recipe, I’m following the rules! 😋 Yummy no matter what you call them! ❤

  2. Not sure how I missed Tuesday… oh yeah, went fishing… And no, I didn’t catch anything except frostbite. ;o)

    LOL, I can’t imagine Nickos making food for himself, let alone rice cereal treats.
