Peanut Butter Rice Crispy Squares

I love rice crispy treats, but could do without the marshmallows.  Unless they're organic, almost all marshmallows are made with gelatin and anything made with gelatin tends to gross me out (just look up what gelatin is made out of and you may think twice about eating it again).  I made this no-bake, peanut butter version thanks to a Trader Joe's recipe.  They came out tasting insanely good and I didn't miss the marshmallows for a second!  They're super easy to prepare and anything that's made with peanut butter is always an instant hit our home.




 Ingredients:
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup blue agave syrup
1 cup peanut butter
7 cups crispy rice cereal

Here's How:
Combine brown sugar and blue agave syrup in a large saucepan
Bring to a near boil, stirring often until the brown sugar dissolves
Remove from heat
Add peanut butter to mixture - mix well
Add crispy rice cereal - mix well
Press mixture into a 13 x 9 x 2" greased baking pan
Refrigerate for 2-3 hours to cool and harden
Enjoy!

  20. Oh wow! This really takes me back (I haven't had rice crispy treats since I was a kid)! And since I am a total baking disaster, I love the fact that there is no baking involved!
