No Bake Peanut Butter Chocolate Crisp Bars

 

I have made these so many times in the past 2 months and let me tell you they do not get old! They are so easy to make, require 0 baking time and are made with minimal ingredients. You can sub the peanut butter for cashew, almond or any other nut butter mixture. I also keep these in the freezer and have been eating them with my ice cream at night. You cannot go wrong with these! 

For the rice crisp cereal, I used Inspired Organics. You want to go with an airy / lightweight option versus a more dense one. Both will work, but the airy texture really adds to these.

I adapted the original recipe of these from Joy Food Sunshine blog. She has great stuff on her site! 

Crisp Layer
 1 cup Peanut Butter (Creamy, Drippy is best)
  cup Honey
 1 tsp Vanilla
 3 cups Crisp Rice Cereal
 ¼ tsp Sea Salt
Chocolate Layer
 1 cup Dairy Free Chocolate Chips
 ½ tbsp Coconut Oil

1

Mix peanut butter, honey and vanilla in a mixing bowl. You want to use creamy peanut butter to begin with, but if it is not creamy you should melt it prior to mixing.

2

Once mixed, add the rice cereal to the bowl and mix very well. You want all the rice crisps to be covered in the honey/PB coating.

3

To a microwave safe bowl, add 1 C of chocolate chunks and 1/2 tbsp of coconut oil. Melt for 2 minutes on medium, mixing halfway.

4

Line an 8x8 pan with parchment paper and grease with coconut oil spray.

5

Pour coated rice crisps into the pan and use a greased spatula to press the mixture evenly throughout the pan.

6

Once chocolate is melted, pour it on top of the rice crisps and use a spoon to cover evenly. Sprinkle some sea salt on top.

7

Store in the fridge for 1 hour before cutting into squares and eating.
