5 Minute Chocolate Peanut Butter Chews

I have a giant bag of brown rice crisp cereal so I'm always looking for things I can make with it. These no bake chocolate peanut butter chews are really easy to make and a great chocolatey snack to have in the freezer when you want something sweet. Just don't bring out the whole container of them when you're watching TV otherwise you might eat 4 before you know it like I did!

5 Minute Chocolate Peanut Butter Chews
Adapted from Oh She Glows

Makes 6-7

1/4 cup smooth all-natural peanut butter
3 tbsp organic brown rice syrup
1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
1 tsp cocoa powder
2 tbsp chocolate chips
1 cup brown rice crisp cereal

In a medium sized bowl, stir together all ingredients except rice crisps. Microwave on high for 35-45 seconds. Stir well and immediately stir in the rice crisp cereal, until all rice crisps are coated.

Wet hands thoroughly and shape the mixture into golf ball sized balls. With wet hands, press mixture together firmly into balls so it will hold. Place the balls onto a plate or tray and freeze for 5 minutes. You can keep these chews in the freezer or fridge.

With 2 kids, sometimes all I have is 5 minutes to throw something together, so this is perfect!!

Perfect snack idea - that peanut butter chocolate combo is a classic for a reason!

Lovely snack - I don't buy those rice crisps because I never know what to do with them but I guess you put them in muesli and slices??? (Actually now I remember the last time I bought gf rice crisps they were dry and horrid)

It is simply dangerous to have something like this be so easy/fast to make!

You should submit this recipe to the cookie contest by the end of the month. See my blog for details, as I wrote up a post and entered some rum balls.
