Crispy Rice Treats

When I played Lady Macbeth, the dude who played my hubby-whom I taunted and abused until he murdered the king- was an actor named Chris Pine. I couldn't help but think, through many a rehearsal, that I was playing opposite "Crisp Rice," the main ingredient in this excellent dessert.


  • 1 cup brown rice syrup
  • 2/3 cup peanut butter (or try almond, cashew, or even hazelnut butter)
  • healthy dash umeboshi vinegar
  • healthy dash vanilla (optional)
  • 3 cups crispy brown rice cereal
  • cinnamon, nutmeg, raisons, roasted almonds, peanuts, or cashews to taste (optional)


  1. Over a medium flame, heat up brown rice syrup, peanut butter, vinegar, and if desired, vanilla, stirring constantly until the mixture is smooth, thinned out, and bubbling a little.
  2. Pour cereal into mixing bowl.
  3. Add rice syrup mixture to it and blend well with a wooden spoon.
  4. Pour into an oiled pan and flatten with a wet spatula.
  5. Let cool. Slice and serve.
