I am a huge fan of Rice Crispy Treats. Especially covered in chocolate. When peanut butter is thrown into the mix, there probably won’t be any left for others. I adapted this recipe from Eat Good 4 Life’s version, which contained coconut. Because my husband isn’t the biggest fan of this, I felt that putting it in the dessert would have truly forced me to consume the pan in its entirety. Perhaps I’ve a bit safer this way.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Rice Crispy Bars

Bottom Layer

  • 1/4 Cup Honey Granules
  • 1/2 Cup Honey
  • 1/2 Cup Peanut Butter
  • 2 1/4 Cups Brown Rice Cereal
  • 1/2 Cup Oats
  • 1 Tbsp. Cocoa Powder

Middle Layer

  • 1 1/2 Cups Peanut Butter

Top Layer

  • 1 1/2 Cups Enjoy Life Chocolate Chips

In a saucepan, combine Honey Granules, Honey, and Peanut Butter on low heat. Heat for approx. 1-2 minutes stirring until granules dissolve. Remove from heat and add Cereal, Oats, and Cocoa Powder. Press the resulting mixture into a foil lined baking pan.

Next, spread Peanut Butter on top of the Crispies (warming in the microwave for a few seconds may make it easier to spread). Place the pan in the refrigerator and allow to set for about an hour.

Melt Chocolate in a bowl (I simply use the microwave). Stir until smooth and spread this over the peanut butter layer. Again, transfer to the refrigerator to set – about 30 additional minutes.

Finally, lift the Crispies out of the pan by pulling out the foil. Cut into squares and store in the refrigerator!
