This beauty of a recipe only has 5 ingredients and great for getting the kids into the kitchen. We are lucky enough that our school is not against peanuts, so this is also a great lunchbox treat, after school treat or fantastic for those chocolate cravings! It’s also gluten free and dairy free with the right chocolate.
4 cups of puffed rice – we opted for puffed brown rice that I found in Coles. Any health food store will have it, otherwise if preferred plain puffed rice or rice bubbles are fine.
4 Tbsp of your favorite smooth or crunchy peanut butter – we used our all natural PB from Wyld Organics Marketplace fresh peanuts straight through their ginder.
4 Tbsp of honey or rice malt syrup
1 cup of roughly chopped natural peanuts – we always choose unsalted
200g dark chocolate – for this one we had 95% dark cocoa from Lindt (my fav but not everyone’s cup of tea). Around 70-85% cocoa will appeal to most people. If you have allergies grab yourself some vegan chocolate, super delicious and the coconut oil in it can really enhance the flavour of this slice.
- Line a large square baking tray/ tin with baking paper
- Toast the puffed rice in a frying pan until it becomes golden in colour. Transfer to a large mixing bowl.
- In a saucepan on low heat melt and combine the honey/ malt syrup and peanut butter
- pour the peanut butter mixture into the bowl with the puffed rice, add in the chopped peanuts and mix well.
- Transfer mixture to the lined baking tray
- Melt the chocolate in a bowl either in the microwave or via a double boiler method
- Once melted spread the mixture evenly over the top of the slice
- Top with some crushed peanuts and a small sprinkle of sea salt (a must).
- Place in the fridge for an hour, slice it up and serve!
**You can also make your own PB at home by placing a bag of unsalted peanuts in a blender until it goes to the consistency of PB you love. Don’t be alarmed it can take about 10 min and goes through some dry tacky phases. It eventually goes to a PB consistency on its own from the natural oils in the peanuts. Trust me and stick with it, dont give up too early and don’t add anything to it during the process in a panic its not working. Once it at the perfect consistency then you can add in some sea salt, seeds, hemp etc if you wish. Take a look at some of the brands in the grocery store see what they are adding in and copy it.
