No bake chocolate and peanut butter bars recipe

Combining two of my tasty favourites – chocolate and peanut butter, these rather moreish bars of chocolatey goodness make for a superb sweet treat. No bake, no fuss – this is a simple melt, mix and set recipe – too easy!

A straight forward recipe for anyone to follow, the biggest decision will be in your puffed rice choice. For a softer, chewier texture choose plain puffed rice. For a slightly crispier bite, head to the cereal aisle and grab a box of Rice Bubbles. I know, tough decision, right?


4 cups puffed rice (or Kellogg’s Rice Bubbles cereal)
220g milk chocolate melts
1 cup of peanut butter
½ cup maple syrup
2 tablespoons coconut oil


  • Line a 20cm square tin with greaseproof paper. Place the puffed rice in a large mixing bowl and set aside.

  • Combine the milk chocolate melts, peanut butter, maple syrup and coconut oil in a heatproof bowl. Using a microwave or stove top double boiler, melt all these ingredients, stirring until smooth.

  • Mix together the chocolate mixture and the puffed rice until completely coated.

  • Spoon the mixture into the prepared tin and press firm. Refrigerate overnight.

  • Remove from tin and slice into bars. Keep in an airtight container in the fridge. Delicious!
