|An old classic with a chocolate-peanut butter twist. Modeled by Elayne.|
|Makes approx. 9 |
3 cups rice puff or crispy rice cereal
1/3 cup natural peanut butter
1/3 cup pure maple syrup
1/4 cup melted coconut oil
1 teaspoon natural vanilla extract
1 cup organic dark chocolate chip
In a saucepan over low heat, add the maple syrup, peanut butter, coconut oil and vanilla extract. Stir constantly with a spatula. Remove from heat when thoroughly mixed.
Put the rice cereal in a large bowl, and drizzle the peanut butter mixture over top and mix.
Grease an 8x8 pan or a casserole dish and add the rice mixture. Use a spatula to evenly distribute and flatten it. Put in the fridge to chill for 10 minutes before making the chocolate layer.
In another saucepan over low heat, add the chocolate chips and constantly stir until melted. Using a spatula, pour over the rice mixture and quickly use the spatula to spread it around evenly.
Put back in the fridge for an hour or two to chill. When ready, use a sharp knife to cut into squares. Keep in the fridge until ready to serve.
