That's right — take the Rice Krispies treats you loved during your childhood (and probably still love today even though you are a fancy grownup, to be honest), and use them as your cheesecake crust. Then, prepare to be blown away. The crunchy cereal perfectly complements the berry creamy (see what I did there?!) smooth cheesecake center. It is the perfect twist on a classic dessert that is always a crowd pleaser. Did I mention you can make it in three simple steps? There is really no excuse not to take a break from the daily grind to make something your friends are all sure to enjoy — I know mine did! Get your bakin’ and refrigeratin’ on with the recipe below.
