Dark Chocolate Almond Rice Krispy Treats

These Dark Chocolate Almond Rice Krispy Treats are great lunch addition for the kids and while they definitely still are a treat I love the addition of the almonds and almond butter.  It kind of gives Rice Krispy Treats a bit of a health upgrade (albeit small).

You can cut these in large pieces to serve 12 or 24 for smaller treats.  I ended up cutting them into 24, bagging them all up and putting them in the freezer to pop in the girls lunches.

Yields 12-24
