Foodie Friday - Rice Crispy Treats

I have an amazing recipe to share with you today. And when I say amazing, I really really mean it.


When I stumbled across the recipe on Facebook a few months back, I knew that they looked and sounded good but I had no idea how incredible they would be until I took my first bite. My sister Jackie can vouch for me on this one, since I was on the phone with her when I taste tested them.

So basically, go and print off the recipe from the beautiful Making Thyme for Health blog and make them now!


They are super simple to make and are a relatively healthy dessert. I mean, they obviously aren't like fruit or something but they use honey as a sweetener and dark chocolate.


You start off by melting your peanut butter (or nut butter of choice) and honey together in a pot. Then you add in your crispy rice cereal, salt and vanilla and stir until everything is evenly coated.


Then you squish it into a parchment lined pan and put it in the freezer for 15 minutes. The recipe says that you can put it in the fridge or freezer to cool but the freezer takes a shorter amount of time so that one was a no brainer. I couldn't wait to try these awesome little treats!


Once the base was nice and cold, I cut it up into small squares and then drizzled my melted chocolate and coconut oil over the top. I could should have been more careful with this part but I was feeling lazy. So they aren't that pretty.


But who really cares, as long as they taste good. Right?


Dan doesn't normally like rice crispy squares but he thought these ones were pretty delicious. Which is pretty obvious since they are already all gone. We didn't have much self control when it came to these little squares of awesomeness. But can you really blame us?

Has anyone else been making any desserts worth sharing? I'm always looking for new recipes to try.
