I promise the next recipe I post will consist of fruit, and will be much healthier than the mass amounts of chocolate covered this, or double chocolate brownie that recipes I seem to have been obsessed with the past week or so. I guess I have been on quite the chocolate high! It happens every now and then. As for now… here are some really simple, chocolately delicious snacks for all of the other chocolate lovers out there! :)
Brown Maple Crispies
1/3 cup maple syrup
1/3 almond butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 cups brown rice crisp cereal
1/2 cup of dark chocolate (optional)
1 tablespoon of butter
Place maple syrup and almond butter in double broiler, and heat until melted and resembles a thick syrup. Add the vanilla, and stir. In a medium size bowl, pour in rice cereal and add in the maple syrup mix. Stir rice cereal until it looks as if 90% or more of rice is covered. Press rice mixture into a pre-greased cake pan. (9by9 works best.)
If you want a chocolate topping, in a double broiler, once again, melt chocolate and butter together. Once completely melted, pour over the rice mixture and spread evenly. Place crisps in the refrigerator for an hour or freezer for 30 minutes.
Cut and serve!
