Sticky and sweet rice crispies base topped with rich and indulgent chocolate ganache – these bars are easy to make with simple ingredients and they are a delicious snack or dessert. The chocolate seeps into the rice crispy base meaning there’s chocolate in every part! They are naturally vegan and gluten-free, too.

Ingredients

  • 120g syrup (e.g. golden or maple)
  • 100g almond or peanut butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 100g rice crispies
  • 270g 70% Dark Chocolate
  • 3 tbsp coconut oil
  • 3 tbsp syrup (e.g. golden or maple)
  • Toppings: cacao nibs, coconut, chopped nuts etc

1. Line an 9-inch square tin with parchment paper.

2. Over a gentle heat, melt together the 120g syrup, peanut butter and vanilla essence until smooth.

3. Add the rice crispies and the salt to a bowl and pour over the sticky mixture and stir until well combined.

4. Press down into the tin and smooth over the top.

5. Break up the chocolate and add to a heat-proof with the coconut oil and melt over a pan of simmering water. Remove from the heat and whisk in the 3 tbsp syrup until smooth. Pour over the rice crispy base. Sprinkle over any toppings, if you like.

6. Allow to set in the fridge for 1-2 hours and slice into 16 squares. Allow to rest for 20 minutes before slicing for neater results.
