Chocolate Peanut Butter Treats with Chocolate Chips

The Kind Diet - Alicia Silverstone

1 box brown rice crisps cereal
1 3/4 cups brown rice syrup
fine sea salt
3/4 cup peanut butter (unsweetened and unsalted if possible)
1/2 cup chocolate chips

1.  Pour the rice cereal into a large bowl.  Heat the syrup with a pinch of salt in a saucepan over low heat.  When the rice syrup liquefies, add the peanut butter and stir until well combined.  Pour over the rice cereal.  Mix well with a wooden spoon.
2.  Once thoroughly mixed and cooled to room temperature, stir in the chocolate chips.  Make sure the mixture is cool, or you will end up with melted chocolate instead of chocolate chips in your treats.
3.  Turn the mixture out into an 8x8 or 9x13 baking dish.  Wet your wooden spoon lightly and press the mixture evenly into the pan.  Let cool for 1 hour (if you can) before cutting into squares or bars.
