Description

These peanut butter and honey rice crispy squares with chocolate are the perfect simple, healthy treat! Made with a handful of pantry ingredients, you can whip up a batch whenever the craving strikes.


Ingredients

Scale

Squares

  • 4 1/2 cups brown rice crispy cereal
  • 1/2 cup + 2 tablespoons raw honey
  • 1/2 cup + 2 tablespoons natural peanut butter
  • 1/3 cup organic butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Pinch of sea salt (if using unsalted peanut butter)

Chocolate Topping

  • 3 tablespoons chopped cacao butter (you can sub coconut oil in a pinch!)
  • 3 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 2 tablespoons raw honey
  • 2 tablespoons non-dairy milk

Instructions

  1. MAKE THE SQUARES:¬†Place the cereal in a large mixing bowl. Line a 8×8-inch square baking dish with parchment paper with enough overhang to allow you to lift out the square once it’s ready.
  2. Melt the honey, peanut butter, and butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat, whisking often. Once melted, mix in the vanilla and salt, if using. Pour over the cereal in the bowl and mix well to combine.
  3. Scoop the mixture into the prepared baking dish and smooth the top.
  4. MAKE THE RAW CHOCOLATE TOPPING: Melt the cacao butter in a small saucepan over medium-low heat. Whisk in the remaining ingredients and pour over the square.
  5. Freeze until firm- at least 4 hours- and slice into squares. (I recommend running a sharp knife under hot water for about 20 seconds first to aid in slicing.) I found 16 squares to be the perfect size!
  6. Store the squares in an airtight container in the freezer. They won’t last long!
