It is time for back to school snacks! I don’t have kids going back to school, as mine are fully grown. I did however enjoy these yummy treats all summer long when we were camping! As many of you already know, I LOVE my chocolate!! I’ll take it however I can get it. I also used to enjoy all those yummy chocolate bars with all the stuff in them. This are a great chocolate bar with yummy crunchie stuff in it! Great for those time that you’d like to indulge a little more!

I have added a nut free version so that they can safely go to any school!

Chocolate Almond Crunchy Bars (Gluten Free/ Dairy Free/ Vegan/ Refined Sugar Free/ Nut Free Option)

2 c. gluten free crisp rice cereal (3 c. if going nut free)
