Why Add Sweetened Condensed Milk

I don’t know about you, but I absolutely hate when my rice krispie treats become to hard to eat after only one day. By adding 1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk to your recipe, your rice krispie treats will have an extra milky flavor, and will make your rice krispie treats stay soft for days. They are extra gooey and extra delicious. Once you make this recipe, you will never go back to the classic rice crispy treat recipe again!
