June is coming up fairly fast and if you are like we are, then you are often at a loss for what to get or do for Father’s Day. In the past, when the weather was nice, we have been able to enjoy a picnic. These Father’s Day Golf Ball Rice Krispie Bars are the perfect sweet treat for a Father’s Day home cooked meal or picnic.
