When I was a kid, one of my favorite snacks was fruit. But, then I started making nut butter and it all turned around. Yep, you better believe it. I started making crispy rice treats and snazzing them up with all kinds of goodies: dark chocolate, sea salt, and of course, any of your favorite JUSTIN’S® Nut Butters. Feel like a kid again with my nut butter rice crispy treats with dark chocolate & sea salt.
