Sweeten the season with Chocolate Rice Krispie bars

The first annual Christmas Cookie Exchange continues on a pace with a tempting adaptation of Rice Krispie treats.

This recipe is from Sherri Kroesch, the business manager at St. Aloysius Parish, Jackson, where she is also a member.

She treasures the recipe which came to her from her husband’s Aunt Agnes, a “wonderful lady who wore white gloves and used cloth napkins. She always had a little treat ready when you came to visit and this was one of my favorites.”
