Do you remember these Chocolate Coconut Bites? They are one of my favorite desserts and they are also one of the most popular recipes on the blog. The most frequent question I receive is how to make them without either the coconut or the oatmeal. When I combined those questions with a couple of boxes of cereal in the pantry the result was fantastic!
No-Bake Crispy Chocolate Peanut Butter Bites
Yield: 24 bars or 60+ bite size pieces
1 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup honey
1/2 cup butter
1 1/2 cups dark or semi-sweet chocolate chips
3 cups corn flakes cereal
3 cups crisp rice cereal
Melt the peanut butter, honey and butter in a medium size saucepan over medium-low heat. Stir frequently as the mixture melts. (You can also melt this in the microwave in one minute intervals, stirring in between.) When it has melted, remove from the heat. Add the chocolate chips and stir until smooth. Add the cereal about 2 cups at a time, stirring well to coat in between additions.
Transfer to an 8x8 pan and press the mixture to fill the pan out evenly. A larger pan will work as well, the pieces will just be thinner. Refrigerate until the chocolate hardens, at least 2-3 hours. Slice into 1"-2" square pieces. Store in the refrigerator. Enjoy!
