    I have a few batches of "Gourmet" krispie cereal treats that were left unwrapped and are now as hard as concrete.
    What would be a good alternative to throwing these out?
    THANKS!

    My mother discovered, oddly enough, that if you put sweet baked treats in a ziplock with a piece of bread it'll soften them back up from rock hard.  Just like brown sugar.  She did it with some oatmeal brownies, sugar cookies, and gingerbread cookies with great success.

    We also do this at home. Sometimes we mix together it with dough, and it come really good. We called it pudding.  :)

    It's funny Charron mentioned that. My grandma taught me that trick with cookies. It does work.
