Description

These delicious homemade crunch bars are made with just 2 simple ingredients. Crunchy puffed rice cereal and rich decadent chocolate combine to create this candy bar treat. 


Ingredients

  • 3 cups (525g) Vegan Chocolate (Chopped) or Vegan Chocolate Chips
  • 2 cups (70g) Puffed Rice Cereal*

Instructions

  1. Spray an 8×8 square dish with non-stick spray and line it with parchment paper so that there is an overhang on either side. 
  2. Add the chocolate to a microwave safe bowl and microwave it in 30-second intervals bringing it out to stir every 30-seconds until melted. 
  3. Add the puffed rice cereal and fold it into the melted chocolate. 
  4. Pour out into the prepared 8×8 square dish and smooth down. 
  5. Place into the fridge to set. 
  6. When set remove it from the dish using the parchment paper overhang. Cut into 10 neat bars. 

Notes

*Vegan chocolate. It’s best to use a high quality good tasting vegan chocolate bar (roughly chopped). You can also use vegan chocolate chips but make sure you use a brand that you know will melt down and re-set well. 

*Puffed rice cereal. Rice krispies may not be technically vegan in some countries because of the way their Vitamin D is sourced, but you can certainly use an alternative brand of puffed rice cereal. If you’re gluten-free then make sure you use a gluten-free brand of puffed rice cereal. 

*Storing and Freezing. These bars store very well in the fridge in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks. They are also freezer friendly for up to 3 months.
