Taking on the Treats Truck, One Treat at a Time: Crispy Squares

Crispy Squares with Green Sprinkles
Here's the thought process I had prior to lunch time on St. Patrick's Day: "Should I go get a treat? I really need a treat. But there's a LOT of youngins', drunk youngins' out there. And bag pipes. And drunk firemen. Scratch that, I don't mind firemen. But it is pretty out, and sunny to boot. Oh fine, I'll go get a treat."

Irish Cupcakes
Of course, Kim had made multiple holiday specials, including Irish cupcakes

and shamrock cookies, with and without frosting.

Lots of Crispy Squares
But this is about the crispy square I picked up (along with a shamrock cookie!) I don't know a person who doesn't love crispy squares, they're the ultimate no-bake childhood activity. If you don't like them, I question your sanity and quickly recommend therapy to get over your issues, but that's just me. Crispy squares aren't hard to come by in the big bad city, FRESH crispy squares are. For $2, you can hear snap, crackle, and pop embedded in marshmallow goodness, and think about being a kid again, especially if there are green sprinkles on top. I highly recommend sitting in the sun on an early spring day, making fun of the passing revelers for the peak experience.

Hi Jennifer! Fixed it; that's what I get for not proofreading!
