Chocolate Crispy Rice Treats

MSCD 3-month recipe

6 cups brown rice cereal
1 cup honey
1 cup chunky peanut butter
4 Tbs. butter
⅓ cup cocoa powder
1 tsp. vanilla extract
dash of nutmeg

Combine honey, peanut butter, and butter in a large pot over medium-low heat. Stir for a few minutes until melted. Slowly sprinkle in cocoa powder, stirring to prevent lumping. Once incorporated, remove from heat and stir in vanilla and nutmeg. Add brown rice cereal to mixture, stirring to combine until cereal is coated and mixture is sticky. Press mixture into a well-oiled or buttered 9 by 13-inch dish. Chill in refrigerator for 1 hour. Cut into squares and serve.

  1. I want to try this! I might just make some today!

  2. For our Super Bowl party, I added a couple eggs and some shredded coconut, then shaped them like footballs and piped on cream cheese laces. Cute and yummy! The egg make them have a chewy center and a crunchy exterior. I baked them at 350, because of the egg, but I didn't write down how long! Sorry. I'll have to make them again and pay attention to what I did. I know the family won't mind eating them again :)
