What is the best way to get over a national championship game loss? Eating lots of Rice Krispie treats probably helps, and eating 11,327 pounds of the gooey snack will definitely take one's mind off what could have been.

A group of Wisconsin students completed work on the world's largest Rice Krispie treat over the weekend as part of Project Freshman 15,000, which raised money for local charities while setting the delicious world record.

The group was aiming for a 15,000-pound treat but ended up at five and a half tons, which was still enough to break the record of 10,314 pounds set in California in 2010, according to Reuters.
