Chocolate Peanut Butter Rice Krispy Treats

These Chocolate Peanut Butter Rice Krispy Treats are my new go-to treat forever and always.

Rice Crispy Treats are one of my all-time favorite snacks ever! And add creamy peanut butter and chocolate to the mix? Forget about it. If my self-control is out of whack for whatever reason, well, see ya later to the entire pan.

Can these be modified to be gluten-free?

Most definitely. Make sure to read your labels and buy the appropriate rice Krispy cereal of choice. Kelloggs makes a new gluten-free rice Krispy cereal and One Degree Organics makes a really delicious brown rice cereal as well!
