Chocolate Hazelnut Rice Crispy Treats
Everyone LOVES rice crispy treats. Well, maybe not everyone. I know that I certainly do—they’re one of my favorite easy desserts. Because I also love Peanut Butter & Co. Milk Chocolatey Hazelnut Spread, I wanted to marry the two together. I feel like it was a match made in heaven – these treats are delightful. They are also a little healthier than traditional rice crispy treats (which I’m sure you noticed) and so you can feel a little less guilty. Share these with friends, family, neighbors, or co-workers. They’ll all love them! Also, if you can’t find brown rice syrup, you can also substitute Karo syrup instead. Works just the same, just not as healthy!

- Total Time:11 minutes
2/3 cup brown rice syrup
1/4 cup coconut oil
1 tsp vanilla extract
4 cup rice cereal
1/4 tsp sea salt
Combine the coconut oil and brown rice syrup in a saucepan over medium heat.
Bring the mixture to a rolling boil.
Boil for one minute, then remove from the heat and stir in the Peanut Butter & Co. Milk Chocolatey Hazelnut Spread and vanilla extract.
Pour the rice cereal into a large mixing bowl along with the salt. Stir in the boiled syrup mixture until the cereal is well-coated. Line an 8-inch pan with wax paper to prevent sticking, then spread the coated cereal in the pan.
Pack the cereal tightly into the bottom of the pan. Place the bars into the freezer to set up for 45 minutes.
Slice and serve!
