Almond Butter Rice Krispie Treats

Almond Butter Rice Krispie Treats

Rice Krispie Treats are one of my all time favorite desserts.  They are ready in five minutes, you don’t have to turn on the oven, and they taste so good!  I always think of my uncle when I make them because there is really no telling how many batches he made me over the years.  You see, we were best buddies, not only did he make Rice Krispie Treats on demand, he would drive me to the store just for a pack of Pop Rocks or to the Diamond Drive-In for an ice cream cone and he let me watch American Band Stand with him every Saturday after we watched Bugs Bunny & the Road Runner.  He was the coolest, and still is if you ask me!  These Rice Krispie Treats are extra special because I made them with Barney Butter!  Barney Butter is made from almonds, like peanut butter but with almonds.  I received a few samples of Barney Butter almond butter and whoa am I ever hooked!  It is all natural, has less saturated fat than peanut butter, just as much protein and fewer calories.  Not that you count calories when eating Rice Krispie Treats.  The Barney Butter adds great almond flavor and with browned butter they are all toasty and super delicious.

The folks at Barney Butter were nice enough to offer one of you a FREE jar of Barney Butter.  You want this, I know you do!  It’s even good for you!  They are also offering a 15% discount on orders just for my readers!
