  • pinch of salt
  • 4 cups brown rice crispies

Top Layer

  • 1 cup chocolate chips

Bottom Layer

  1. First, spray a 9×13-inch* pan with cooking spray or lay a sheet of parchment paper into the bottom of the pan.
  2. Prepare the bottom layer of the bars by mixing peanut butter, honey, and salt into a large bowl. Mix until smooth and then fold in rice crispies.

  3. Place in the freezer for at least 2 hours.
  4. When ready to slice, remove from freezer and let chill for 20 minutes. Slice and enjoy.
  5. Store in a freezer-safe gallon size bag in the freezer (or else it will melt!).

Tips & Notes

  • You can use any size pan you would like. For thicker bars, use a 9×9-inch pan and for thinner bars, use a 9×12-inch pan.
  • For these photos, we used a 9×9 inch pan and cut the bars into 9 squares. However, please note that this recipe serves 36, not 9! We did it for the photos in all honesty 🙂
  • Nutrition is based on a 9×13 pan, which makes 36 thinner bars.
