3 minute Peanut Butter Rice Crispy Treats!

Honestly - is there anything better than Chocolate and Peanut Butter! 
I mean, the two complete my life!
I about die when I eye those gooey chocolate rice bars on pinterest. Amazing!
 I'm sure, but I would definitely not be able to eat just one!

So to the kitchen I went! The PERFECT little treat for kids
 (or afternoons when I need a mommy "pick-me-up") 

I like to store them in my freezer, so I have to wait for them to thaw and it controls portion size!
But with these little babies, you won't feel as guilty if indulging wins!

 Wrapped in packages and Tied with bows - anything looks cuter!

1/3 c honey
1/4 c crunchy peanut butter (all natural!)
1/4 c raw cacao powder or cocoa powder
1/2 tsp salt if pb is unsalted, or you like salt!
1/2 tsp vanilla
3/4 c puffed brown rice cereal
1/2 c regular oats
Mini Chocolate Chips or Unsweetened Carob chips (for a lower sugar option)

(ps. I like lots of salt! Salt and sweet are for me! 
So lessen the salt if you want, but if you like salt - go with kosher salt! Its the best!)

Warm the Honey and Peanut Butter a little in microwave safe dish. 
Stir and add the rest of ingredients.
  Stir quickly and let cool a tiny bit before adding chips.
Roll into balls with hands and place in fridge until hardened
