This recipe is one of our family holiday favourites! Every single time we make these at home, Aidan ends up eating at least two a day until they’re gone.
So simple and easy to make; we have a feeling you’ll end up making these every year just like we do!
- 1/2 cup natural peanut butter (or nut butter of your choice)
- 1/2 cup brown rice syrup
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1 tbsp Earth Balance dairy-free butter (or regular butter)
- 2 cups brown rice crispy rice cereal
- 1 cup unsalted peanuts
- 1 cup Enjoy Life gluten-free, dairy-free chocolate chips
The Steps to Take
Cook and stir peanut butter, brown rice syrup, brown sugar, and earth balance together in a large saucepan over medium low heat until boiling. Remove from heat.
Fold crispy rice cereal and peanuts into mixture.
Press into an 8 inch square baking dish with cooking spray of choice.
Sprinkle chocolate chips over top of hot mixture and allow to melt/spread over top in an even layer.
Cover and refrigerate until the mixture hardens (approx. 1 hour).
Cut into squares immediately and enjoy! Store leftover squares in an air tight container.
