Why eat plain Krispie Treats when you can have even more excitement?

Feel free to call them protein bites, if it makes you feel better about eating them.

Both of my children are college students this year. Both of them chose locations that take several days (even up to a week) for mail to reach them. Thus, I have a dilemma when shipping homemade goodies to them- keeping food fresh. Regular care package items, like chocolate chip cookies,
