Oh dear. The team and Crunch and Nestlé reignited some memories when they reached out to collaborate with them.

How do you make enemies with family ‘friends’?

Go hiking with them with candy bars. 

Why would that create enemies? 

Because hiking with Celiac friends without gluten-free candy bars is like torture to them.

Every Winter, my sister and two of our family friends would catch up while our mum’s would go off and gossip about what terrible children we were and how we weren’t studying hard enough. While they had this mother’s club, us four ‘kids’ would usually go to the shopping centre, grab lunch and sit in the food court waiting for them to finish up. 

Two years ago, our family friend had the silly idea to go hiking- Something my sister and I did NOT appreciate. It was freezing cold, we were lazy and had been contemplating what meal to buy at the food court. However, because we were good sports, we agreed to go. As we were planning on being in a remote location for several hours, my mum told Niki to pack snacks for us all. Niki compiled and packed candy bars, skittles and a bottle of soft drink.

My sister and I conveniently forgot that these family friends of ours were gluten intolerant and could not eat any of the snacks we brought with us, including the crunch candy bars. Mum was never one to ever willingly buy us chocolate bars, but my sister convinced her that because it had crispy rice cereal in them, they were pretty much a granola bar.

We set off on this hike and were relieved to see that the small mountain had been closed off due to a potential avalanche, so only the surrounding area was free to roam. Perfect. We had only been walking for about 15 minutes or so before Niki whipped out the stash of snacks.

“Who wants a crunch bar?!”

“Jess and I can’t eat that. We’re gluten intolerant. Didn’t you bring anything else?” 

“Yes. I brought the plastic bag to carry them in.”

……

Safe to say, whilst our mothers still have their yearly gossip session (and probably only call US the bad children), our family friends have conveniently been ‘busy’ on this one day of the year.

When the folk at Crunch reached out to collaborate with them, I was already a fan of their chocolate bars because anything with rice crispies mixed in and I’m game. However, I know my gluten-free, vegan and diabetic friends out there can’t enjoy this bar of texture deliciousness. Hence- I tried it out two times using two different types of chocolate-

This sugar-free chocolate bar and this dairy free chocolate bar.

This two ingredient no bake copycat Crunch bar is straight forward, easy and you’ll be spending most of your time waiting for the chocolate to firm up with the crispy rice cereal. Not only is this version allergen-friendly, gluten-free and completely vegan, there’s also an option to make it completely sugar-free too. 

Winner! Winner! Sugar-Free…Treat. 

BONUS! My friends at Nestlé and Crunch have a $20 Cash Prize Giveaway to share with you all. On top of that, I’ll be making a huge batch of these 2 Ingredient No Bake Copycat Crunch bars too- In either sugar-free or dairy-free!

  1. Oh, I’ll make them alright – you’d better believe that’s happening – like TODAY. Toying with the idea of making them 3-ingredient by adding some peppermint extract, since the Thin Mint Crunch bars are the hands-down favorite around here!

  2. oh this candy was my fave growing up. Do you remember Buncha Crunch?! I would love to try the thin mint variety since girl scout cookies are amazing. Love that. your recipe is 2 ingredients.

  3. I used to love Crunch bars, and in fact, I’ve always preferred them to plain chocolate. I need a little a texture in my bites and crispy rice cereal is a great way to go.

    Confession: I bought a giant bag last year because I was going to add it to granola and make mountains of granola bars. I threw it out eight months later because it went bad. Oops. Maybe it’s time to try again.

  4. Umm for starters I don’t like sharing so I wouldn’t have even offered to your family friends, but along with that as someone that doesn’t eat a lot of things YOU LEARN to bring your own snacks. So SHAME on them for not doing so. Gossip on THAT people. Did this show enough sass to hike with your sister? Actually I’m a picky hiker when it comes to hiking friends. SO I like going alone. Because I’m a loner. Where am I going with this? Yes I love to hike and I bring all the fruit, some seeds, potatoes, and anything else really.

  5. Yum – thin mint! I’m definitely trying this recipe; I might even add some mint extract to recreate my own thin mint flavor 🙂 thanks for sharing!

  6. You and Niki + me and my brother ➔ hiking. We should make a reality TV show out of it.
    I love that your sister was so dedicated to Crunch bars. That was like me with Pillsbury Crescent Rolls. I literally filmed myself at 4 y.o. talking about how amazing they are. I’d still do the same thing. #posterchild

  7. Crunch bars have always been my favorite, but thanks to these goddamn allergies I can’t have anything good in life, which includes my beloved Crunch bars. The last time I was able to eat them I don’t think that they had many funky flavors, but I did love the Crunch ice cream Dibs, and my twin loves the Buncha Crunch. And I most certainly accept the invitation to hike with Niki- her sass and mine combined would burn down the forest!

  8. Forget hiking…I just want these crunch bars as my daily snack. I need to keep a container of these right on the side of my desk. Let’s vote to see how long it will last. (Voting starts at 4 hours…) Well done, Arman…and I would happily go hiking with Niki if she brought snacks and Panda. That is all.

  9. Whaaaaaaaaat.. crunch used to be MY SHIZZZZ and the fact that i just creeped those new flavors and almost couldn’t decide which aka all of them i wanted (maybe peanut butter because it just seems cliche of me) makes me cry that i cant actually eat them. but then theres you. and these. which give me reason to exist in a chocolate filled world <333 (a lily's chocolate world because i survive off of those stevia chips)

    and that's a funny joke for pretending that i dont follow you on facebook yet 😉

    AND FEEL BETTER! i wish i could give you some rock solid gluten free bread toast to crunch on

  10. What a good recipe.. I’m not a great cook and I don’t have a lot of patience for it… But this recipe is easy peasy!

  11. Okay, just made these and proceeded to eat the entire batch! It’s been a long time since I had a good edible, chocolate crunch and this hit the spot!!! I used 3 tblsp. of Good Life non-dairy chips melted with 1 tblsp. of coconut oil and poured over 1 1/2 cups of gluten free rice crispies, patted out giant bar
    on parchment paper and put in freezer for about 20 minutes. Omg, can’t thank you enough
