APPLE CRISP WITH A TWIST

I have absolutely always loved to cook and bake.  I also like to find to recipes, even if they are a twist on some of my classic family ones.  My kids have always loved my homemade apple crisp.   I came across a recipe for apple crisp with a twist from Kellogg’s!  I saw it and thought, hmm that looks really good, I should test it out on my family.  I have all the ingredients, why not try it.  So, I baked away for my family.  I didn’t tell them at first that I had tried a different recipe.

My kids were gobbling it up!  I wasn’t sure if I should have been impressed or a little butt-hurt at first.  <insert giggle here>

Then the kids and my husband said, “This is really good! It was different though… What did you do differently to it?” I told them that I had used a Kellogg’s Rice Krispies recipe I had found.  They were blown away that Rice Krispies were more than just the traditional cereal and marshmallow treat. It was so simple to make and I keep all the ingredients on hand as staple items.

Prep Time was only about 5 minutes tops and then it took around 30 minutes to bake.  I am serious about using this recipe more often, as it is delicious and takes less time than my previously used recipe.  Not to mention my family approved it as delicious.
