  • 1 cup natural creamy peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 4 cups crispy rice cereal
  • Cooking spray
  • 1 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • Flaky sea salt for topping optional


  • Cook peanut butter, maple syrup, and honey in a small saucepan over medium-low heat until melted, stirring often.
  • Combine peanut butter mixture in a large bowl with crispy rice cereal; stir well. Transfer mixture to an 8x8 baking pan lined with parchment paper and coated with cooking spray, pressing mixture down firmly with the back of a spatula.
  • Place chocolate chips in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave in 30-second intervals until chocolate softens; stir until melted and smooth. Pour chocolate over crispy rice treats, smoothing out with the back of a spoon. Sprinkle with flaky sea salt, if desired. Cover and refrigerate two hours, or until chocolate is set.
