Peanut butter & chocolate have got to be one of the best food combinations ever! Don't agree? Well, Reeses Peanut Butter Cups and Peanut Butter M&M's have made millions off the idea! You know I still remember the year (1991) that M&M's introduced the peanut butter center! It was one of the most magical days of my life...(up to that point...I was 11. Ha ha.) ;) I bought a large bag and ate almost the entire thing while at the movies...and then I got a HUGE headache. Probably from all the sugar and food coloring! So the lesson my friends, moderation!
(PS- food coloring really can cause headaches and migraines among some other undesirable side affects. We avoid food coloring at ALL COSTS in our house! Dr. Mercola has written an EXCELLENT article on the subject that really teaches about the dangers. You can read it HERE.)
That's why this next recipe is so great! No food coloring, just simple ingredients. Of course, you'll want to eat these in moderation as well but when you do divulge, they make a great treat!

Can't find or afford gluten free graham crackers? Try Rice Chex instead! Simply sub in 1/2 cup Gluten Free Rice Chex crumbs for the graham cracker crumbs. They provide a great little crunch and taste fantastic!
