We absolutely love this spin on rice krispy treats and s’mores! These rice krispies are made with the basics for s’mores, like graham crackers and chocolate, with bonus pieces of Coffee Maple Cacao LivBar throughout.

Chewy, crispy bites of rice krispies work well with chunks of chocolate chips and mini marshmallows.

There are several different uses for salad dressings, like as a dip for raw cut vegetables or to marinate protein before cooking.
