Ingredients

Instructions

  • Add the honey to a small saucepan and heat on med heat until hot and bubbling for about a minute.
    6 tbsp honey
  • Remove from the heat and add in the peanut butter and vanilla, and mix together thoroughly.
    6 tbsp natural peanut butter, 1 tsp vanilla bean paste
  • Working quickly, pour the mixture over the rice cereal and using a spatula, mix everything together until all the rice crisps are all fully coated
    4-5 cups cocoa rice crisps
  • Place the mixture into a parchment-lined 8x8 container and press down until compact. Set it in the fridge or freezer to chill until set. Cut into 9 bars using a clean sharp knife.
  • To make the optional chocolate drizzle: Add 1.5oz of your chocolate into a microwave safe bowl and melt it on 30 second intervals until fully melted, stirring between each interval (it takes me one minute to do this, so two intervals).
    2 oz dark chocolate chips
  • Once melted, add in the reserved 0.5oz of chocolate and mix it in until fully melted and smooth - this step tempers the chocolate making it stable at room temp so don't skip it!
  • Pour your chocolate into a piping bag or a sandwich bag with a small corner snipped off and drizzle it over the peanut butter treats. Let the chocolate sit for a few minutes to set or pop it into the fridge to help it set faster.

Notes

This treat is clean eating and without any binders, preservatives, or additives so for the best results and freshness, keep it stored in the fridge in an airtight container where it will last for two+ weeks. Or if you prefer to keep it at room temperature, it will remain fresh for about four days in an airtight container but may start to get soggy and stale.
