I've had a hankering of late for crunchy sweet squares of rice cereal.
It all started when Amy posted her Double Chocolate Crispy Treats last week.
No, I take that back, it really started in September (cue the memory sequence harp music)...
Ah, yes. I remember it well. I found myself part of a group of folks helping out at a vegan bake sale to raise funds ($1,452.50 as it turned out) for the Sanctuary Century, and subsequently three animal sanctuaries in the area. I was doing my thing, hooking up passers by with tasty treats in exchange for their donations, when I spotted them. Those perfect squares, both crunchy and chewy, sweet and peanutty. Yes, these were peanut butter crispy rice treats. Sadly, I don't know who made them, or which recipe was used.

Perhaps I should write a "Missed Connection" or perhaps too much time has lapse. Well, if you're reading this, mystery baker, I would love your recipe.
Anyhoo, I decided I wanted to make peanut butter crispy rice treats, so I consulted the internets, found a recipe that contained ingredients I had on hand, and got crackin'. When I say "crackin'," it kind of implies that these are a lot of work. They're really not. The might be one of the easiest desserts ever.

Today I picked up a bag of Dandies, so it might just become a crispy rice treat party in this house.
