Peanut Buttah Bars

Who doesn't love peanut butter and chocolate? When I go to the store I avoid the junk food aisle like its the plague, everything I use to enjoy when I wasn't vegan has milk product in it. So when I came across a recipe that put my two favorite things together...I had to try it! Are they good for you, probably not, and they good to eat, OH-YEAH!

  • 1 cup dark chocolate- melted
  • 1 tbsp earth balance-melted

Crush the cereal in a food processor-or in a ziplock bag using a rolling pin.
In a large bowl, mix together, cereal, peanut butter, sugar, and butter
Don't be scared to get you fingers dirty, mix it up well.
In a square pan, press the cereal mixture down until its firmly together.

Fill water in a small pot 1/4 full. Place a small bowl on top of the pot and fill it up with the chocolate.
Bring water to a boil, melting the chocolate. Add melted butter.

Pour Chocolate over the rice cereal, place in the refrigerator until the chocolate is hardened.


  1. oh my - these sounds great! Do you think you could sub in Almond Butter, I can't do the peanuts :(

  2. definitely! You might need to add a bit more melted eath balance, just because the almond butter is a little thicker. Let me know how it turns out:)

  3. The bars look wonderful, but I had to comment about the ant dish -- it's too cute.

  4. Aww, thanks Beatrice! My hubby made it for me for at one of those" paint your own dishes" places:)
