Rice crispy treats are the best, but do you really want to go out and buy an entire box of rice crispy cereal for just one serving? You know you’ll inevitably end up with either a ridiculous excess of rice crispy treats that haunt you and your friends for a few weeks or an untouched box of cereal for the rest of the semester.

Try this with whatever cereal you have lying around, whether its your go-to or something that you snagged from the dining hall.
