I heart Trader Joe's... A quick & easy snack!

I LOVE Trader Joe's. Have I mentioned that before? Their food is amazing, which makes cooking more fun... and definitely makes my life a whole lot easier. I was in grabbing some groceries a while back, and saw the new Crisp Rice Cereal... as I threw a box in the cart for Bri & I, I noticed the quick and easy recipe for Peanut Butter Crispy Treats on the back of the box. I was sold. I went and grabbed a tub of TJ Peanut Butter, Brown Sugar, and Agave Syrup. It took me about 5 minutes to whip up a tasty treat... and they were devoured in about 2 days. If you have a Trader Joe's, please go there. Also... make these. Thank you.

Peanut Butter Rice Crispy Treats
7 cups TJ Crisp Rice Cereal
1 cup TJ Creamy Peanut Butter
1 cup TJ Organic Blue Agave Sweetener
1 cup TJ Organic Brown Sugar

First grab a sauce pan and heat sugar &syrup till it bubbles. Then add the peanut butter. Grab a large bowl and pour the mixture over crisp cereal and stir. Press into a 9x11 casserole dish and refridgerate for several hours to harden and cool.

Cut into squares and enjoy!
