My sister Nicole and her healthy ways are always setting a great example for the rest of our family.  She's always getting creative in the kitchen with great recipes for delicious treats, using nutritious, conscious ingredients.
Today's recipe is a perfect example of one of her thoughtful treats.  Her Gluten-Free Krispy Rice Treats are delicious, nutritious, easy and fun to make.  Each bite has a different flavor with the variety of nuts, dried fruit and dark chocolate chips used to make this terrific treat!
