Chocolate-Almond Crispy Treats
Why get store-bought when you can go with homemade? These chocolate delights are sure to satisfy — and they’re gluten free, to boot. Crispy brown rice cereal serves as the perfect base for chocolate chips, almond butter, toasted almonds and cocoa for a treat that can’t be beat!

6 cups gluten-free crisp brown rice cereal
1 1/2 cups sliced almonds, toasted*
1 cup light corn syrup
1/3 cup almond butter
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips

Yield: 24 bars
Serving size: 1 bar

1 – Line 13×9-inch baking pan with parchment paper. Spray with nonstick cooking spray.

2 – Combine rice cereal and almonds in large bowl; set aside.

3 – Combine corn syrup, almond butter, brown sugar, cocoa, and salt in large saucepan. Cook and stir over medium heat 5 minutes or until mixture is smooth and just begins to boil across surface. Remove from heat.

4 – Immediately stir cereal mixture into saucepan. Gently fold in chocolate chips. Press firmly into prepared pan. Let stand 1 hour or until set. Cut into bars.
