Nice Crispies

The old-fashioned rice crispy treats are always a winner at kids’ parties. We’ve added a raw twist and used activated buckwheat to give our crispies a hearty crunch, using chewy, sweet caramel to bind the mixture together. Another great recipe for children with allergies, our nice crispies are nut-free and delicious.
