Rice Krispy Squares with a twist..

If you love Rice Krispy Squares you'll love this recipe:
you don't even have to be a coconut fan..

all you do is replace the butter to coconut oil and it gives it a  different taste..a bit creamer  texture.
Josh doesn't like the taste of coconut and when he tasted one, he said "what is different" to which I replied "different good or bad?" Good he said ..success, I didn't tell him my secret ingredient.
I have purchased my coconut oil at amazon but now buy it at trader joes, but look in any health food store and you should have no problem finding it, I buy 2 bottles because I use one for cooking and one as a moisturizer, make up remover, massage oil, foot cream, I love this stuff, it smell wonderful and it makes your skin soft..So go buy two, you'll be happy you did, you can  replace any recipe with butter or oil for coconut oil,  even frying with it..just experiment with different recipes.  ENJOY!
