What’s better than a rice krispy treat? A homemade, healthy, chocolatey treat of course!

Ingredients for Recipe:

  • 3 ½ cups Rice Krispies

  • ½ cup raw pecans – chopped

  • ½ cup Pecan Smash

  • 1/3 cup maple syrup

Ingredients for Topping:

  • ½ cup dark chocolate chips (70% or higher)

  • ¼ cup Pecan Smash

Directions:

  • Line an 8 x 8 baking dish with parchment paper.

  • Add rice krispies cereal and chopped pecans to a large mixing bowl. Set aside.

  • In a small saucepan, heat Pecan Smash and maple syrup; whisk until combined. Heat over medium low heat until it slowly bubbles and thickens, stirring occasionally.

To make topping:

  • Place the chocolate chips in a double boiler (a heat-safe bowl over a saucepan with 2 inches of water) over medium low heat.

  • Stir mixture until chocolate chips are melted. Then, add in the Pecan Smash and stir well to mix together.

  • Remove the treats from the freezer and pour the chocolate mixture all over them, spreading evenly in a thin layer.

  • Sprinkle with sea salt if desired.

  • Pop back in fridge for another 15 mins or so to harden.

  • Remove and cut into 3 x 3 inch squares.

  • Devour immediately.
