Giant "Peanut Butter Cup" Rice Cake
(21)
Recipe Intro From alexawhatsfordinner

This recipe is almost TOO easy to be true! This viral social media hack is fun, delicious, and ridiculously simple to execute! Basically, a rice cake gets smothered in peanut butter, melted chocolate, and some flakey salt for a relatively healthy, "peanut butter cup"-like snack! To jazz things up a bit, I made a quick homemade toffee to drizzle on top, because clearly I have a sweet tooth :)

Serves or Makes: 2

Recipe

  • 2 large rice cakes, preferably plain
  • 2 tablespoons peanut butter
  • 1/ 2 cup dark chocolate chips
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 1/ 4 cup brown sugar
  • 4 ounces butter
  • flaky sea salt, to taste

Method

  • Step 1

    Grab the rice cakes and spread peanut butter evenly on top of each. Set aside.

  • Step 2

    In a wide, microwave-safe bowl, add chocolate chips and coconut oil. Microwave in 30 second increments and stir in between, until chocolate is melted and silky.

  • Step 3

    Dip the tops of the peanut butter-covered rice cakes into the chocolate to create a layer of chocolate on top. Sprinkle on flaky sea salt to taste. Place rice cakes into the freezer for the chocolate to harden.

  • Step 4

    Meanwhile, make the toffee. In a pan over medium heat, melt brown sugar and butter together. Stir frequently, bring to a boil, and let thicken for 3-5 minutes.

  • Step 5

    Drizzle a swirl of toffee on top of the rice cakes, and place back into the freezer to harden. After 15-20 minutes in the freezer, enjoy your crispy, salty, and sweet snack!
