Monday Munchies: Crispy Rice Snacks Recipe

At the age of five, I still remember my mother making me my favorite snack, which she found on the back of an EREWHON Crispy Brown Rice Cereal box from our local health food store. I believe, at that time, the recipe was called Crispy Peanut Butter Balls, and you could not eat just one of those bite-size treats, because they were so perfectly sweet and delicious.

Today, the colors and design of the box have changed, but there on the back of the box is still the same recipe for those sweet rice and peanut butter treats only now they are called Crispy Rice Snacks. I don't care, as I am just as happy to be reunited with my favorite childhood snack!
