Peanut Butter Rice Krispie Balls (Gluten & Dairy Free)

Amaaaazing! That’s all i can say about these, well…….almost!!  LOL I do have to mention that I made these prior to my sugar detox, in fact this is what led me there! LOL I think I probably OD’ed on these bad boys! They are seriously addicting! LOL But really, how can you go wrong?! Peanut butter rice krispie treats covered in chocolate and drizzled with MORE peanut butter?!? OMG, I think I died and went to heaven! Considering Im not supposed to have that much sugar OR peanut butter, my stomach went elsewhere! But i like to think it was worth it! Haha. These are really easy to make and are really easy to eat…..well, unless you keep them in the fridge like me, and then they’re actually kinda hard to eat unless you let them sit out and warm up a little before you eat them…..so teeth be warned! LOL  Oh and did I mention gluten AND dairy free?! Yep thats right!!  I think I’m starting to have a Rice Krispies addiction so look forward to some more delicious treats coming your way! Alright, well it’s finally Friday, and I’ve got a whole weekend of baking and blogging ahead of me, so stay tuned and enjoy! 🙂
