Guys, you can call me a basic betch bloke and I’ll take it.

I know just a few months ago, I shared the original healthy 3 ingredient rice crispy treats. These are their tanned and slightly sweeter siblings- The chocolate version. 

However, there is a very valid reason for this which you’ll see on Wednesday or Thursday!

Can we talk about strange childhood quirks for a second? Well, maybe we should rephrase that to gross childhood habits. 

My sister and I rarely ever were allowed the ‘fun’ (sugar laden, bare minimum nutrient dense) cereals in our household. Enjoying a bowlful or ten of something in this category would be incredibly rare. However, we both had our sneaky tactics. 

One tactic we used was ‘hanging out’ with our next door neighbours. Our next door neighbours in our first family home included three children, all younger than my sister and I. We’d go over to their place after school several times a week to ‘play’ with the other children because in their parents eyes, Niki and I were ‘role models.’

Yes, role models. 

Whenever we hung out at their place, we’d of course ALWAYS need a snack. Their mum would always give us the option to have anything we wanted from their pantry, so we’d always request some cereal with milk.

You guys, their cereal stash was insane. 

Fruit loops.

Cocoa Pops. 

Rice Bubbles. 

FRUIT LOOPS.

Seriously, fruit loops were my downfall. 

Safe to say, Niki and I would get our cereal fill and be satisfied.

Oh yeah, we also played with our ‘friends’.

…..which was ‘hide and seek’ in which we both would hide in their basement and play amongst ourselves until it was time to leave.

🙂 

We’re golden.

 

It was definitely a sad day when we moved to another neighbourhood, and the two of us were no longer able to scoff down some sugar-laden cereal under the guise of ‘playing with our friends’. Our new neighbourhood had barely any kids our age and besides, we were now at the age of after school activities, or in my case, music lessons.

BLERGH.

Don’t get me started on those dreaded piano lessons.

Now that I’m physically not in the child-like age range (my mental capabilities and maturity can be questioned), I’m able to make my own decisions when it comes to cereal and chocolate rice crispy treats will always trump the plain ones. It brings back fun memories of hiding from people enjoying multiple bowls of cereal with our neighbours. It also brings back memories of being told off for spoiling our appetites. 

C’est la bloody vie. 

Now let’s talk this healthy 3 ingredient chocolate crispy treats which you will be making because it’s so darn easy AND you’ll need it for a fun recipe next week.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups gluten-free chocolate crispy rice cereal
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter can sub for almond/cashew
  • 1/2 cup sticky sweetener of choice- I've used brown rice syrup best, honey and maple syrup (least sticky)
  • handful of chocolate chips optional

Instructions

  • Line a baking tray with baking paper and set aside or use a muffin tin, sprayed lightly.
  • In a large mixing bowl, add your crispy rice cereal and set aside.
  • Stovetop or in the microwave, melt your nut butter with your sticky sweetener and then pour the mixture into the crispy rice cereal and mix well. If you used brown rice syrup, this should be perfect. If you used honey or maple, you may need to add a dash more to make them stick together.
  • Pour mixture into the lined baking tray or muffin tin and press firmly into place. Add optional chocolate chips and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes to firm up.

Notes

Rice crispy treats can be kept at room temperature- They can also be refrigerated or frozen too
Your rice crispies out already? Perfect. Gotcha covered!

  1. You mean your mum didn’t keep a box of Frosted Sugar Cinnamon Cocoa Bombs in the house? How dare she? Guess you’ll just have to make up for it by downing these treats instead. Delicious!

  2. Our mums sound very similar. Mine was conscious of eating mostly organic and nutritious food for a long time of me growing up so you definitely didn’t find sugary cereals in our house regularly. I had that one friend who had both a grandma serving us all the sugary treats + “Käsebrötchen” (look it up on Google!) AND a Playstation. Needless to say I quite enjoyed visiting her ;).

  3. We did not have good cereal. I never really bought it for my kids either until recently. Don’t judge me, my oldest son is a junk food junkie and I have given up…I buy it for him. Thankfully my other two aren’t even interested in the “good” cereal…they eat much more nutritiously. These look yummy and I know they would happily get eaten here! When my kids were little, we used to make rice krispie castles for their birthday cakes (they don’t like cake either). I know, weird.

  4. Dear Arman, these sound irresistible! What a great snack option…I haven’t made rice krispy treats in ages. You have inspired me with this simple 3-ingredient batch. Take care my friend, Catherine

  5. Lolol. I was only allowed to have sugary cereals once in a blue moon, and I started out with Lucky Charms, until I realized that the actual cereal outside of the marshmallows is pretty much worthless, which is when I switched over to Cinnamon Toast Crunch. Best. Forever.

  6. My dad gave us free range for pretty much anything, which looking back, was not the best. And maybe contributed to my ginormous sweet tooth. Example: my favorite snack was a croissant stuffed with mint chocolate chip ice cream. Ew? …nope. Still YUM.

  7. I was allowed ALL the sugary cereal. I was the kind of friend everyone was happy to visit for their sugar fix. And I never got the hype because I was never deprived maybe.
    My all time favorites were Kellogs Coco Pops because you got to drink cocoa after eating the cereal 😀
