Whether you're gathered around the campfire telling ghost stories or at home prepping for movie night, the entire family is going to be so excited to eat one (or twoor three of these golden brown Rice Krispie treats.

They're like s'mores, but better! Similar to roasting marshmallows over the fire, these tasty treats turn brown and take on a nutty flavor (from the sugar caramelizing) when held over a campfire.

Want to make them inside? You can also toast them with your oven's broiler!
