Healthy Crispy Bar Ice Cream Sandwich

Healthy Crispy Bar Ice Cream Sandwich

 

The only thing better than a giant bowl of ice cream is ice cream sandwich between your favorite childhood treat!

 


 

I’ve been playing around with the idea of making rice crispy treats without using marshmallows or butter. I tried a few different recipes until I found the perfect combination using peanut butter, honey and cereal! That’s it, just 3 ingredients. After I mastered the crispy bar, I knew I had to take it to the next level–with it being summertime and all–so I sandwiched some ice cream between 2 crispy bars and dipped it in chocolate sprinkles for good measure. Best idea I’ve ever had.

 

 

I used Erewhon Organic Crispy Brown Rice Cereal for a gluten-free treat!
