Sweet sweet Treat

Give me SOMETHING sweet to eat!

Looking for a quick and easy tasty sweet treat?
I found these delectables on Cookin Classy's blog and my mouth immediately began to water up. I suddenly had the urge to run to the store and get the necessary ingredients to make sure I had these at home for the upcoming week. Even better... can take them to work too.

Here is the recipe for the Krispie Treats and the Pink Frosting HOMEMADE ofcourse:

Sugar Cookie Rice Krispie Treats
Yields 12

1/3 cup butter
1/8 tsp salt
1 (10.5 oz) pkg miniature marshmallows
1/2 cup Betty Crocker Sugar Cookie Mix (unprepared)
6 cups Rice Krispies Cereal
1 Recipe Sugar Cookie Frosting, recipe follows
Sprinkles (optional)

Butter a 9 x 13 dish, set aside. Melt butter in a large nonstick saucepan over medium low heat.  Stir in salt.  Add marshmallows and stir constantly until completely melted.  Remove from heat.  Stir in Sugar Cookie Mix.  Fold in Rice Krispies Cereal and stir until evenly coated.  Pour mixture into buttered dish.  Using a buttered spatula, spread mixture evenly into pan.  Allow to cool slightly, about 2 minutes, then cut into 12 squares.  Using your hands, round edges of squares by cupping your hands and gently pressing on corners (I also flattened them a bit but not necessary).  Frost each "cookie" with Sugar Cookie Frosting and sprinkle with optional sprinkles.  Store in an airtight container.

Sugar Cookie Frosting

1/4 cup butter, softened
2 Tbsp milk
1/2 tsp vanilla
Pinch salt
2 cups powdered sugar
Food coloring (optional)

In a mixing bowl, using an electric mixer, whip together butter, milk, vanilla, salt and powdered sugar until fluffy and smooth about one minute.  Mix in several drops optional food coloring, stir until well blended.
