Tailgate practice: Rice Krispie Treats

Folks, the summer turns into football season at our house about the end of July.  I always have to have my game on all summer long in thinking about future tailgates, player dinners and September/October/November houseguests.  So-- recipes I make for summer treats are always translatable to the busy football season in our coaching family.  If any of you know a college football coach, this is sacred time-there are just a few weeks every year he can travel with his family.  That time is now and if you look around the beaches, there are some football coaches vacationing. (smile!)

We are just finishing up our stint at the beach.  We were lucky to have family join us part of the time and they brought Rice Krispie Treats...what a great beach snack.  Great beach snack = great tailgate snack.  I started looking online for some Rice Krispie Treat recipes and found this mouth waterer via the blogger, Ally Garner, of Copacetic in Carolina's Pinterest board.
