Chocolate Rice Cake Squares with Maple Butter and Maple Candy

No bake bars

Treat your future self to a little treat! These no bake Chocolate Rice Cake Squares require no oven time, however they do still ask for your patience as they do need to set in the fridge (or freezer). But the wait is worth it. The result is a fudge-y bite with blissful bits of crunch.

These bits of crunch that break up an otherwise smooth bite are made of crumbled airy rice cakes and pieces of maple candy. The maple candy adds a burst of sweetness to the square. With the addition of flaky salt sprinkled on top, there is a healthy balance to the richness for a little treat that satisfies multiple cravings.

Chocolate? Check. Sweetness? Check. Crunch? Check. Salty? Check. Satisfied? Check.

We’re sure bits of pretzels or granola would also be delicious as mix-ins for these squares. Experiment with your favorite salty-and-sweet snacks for the ultimate square.

While the recipe calls for sunflower butter, you can use whatever nut butter you fancy. Just be sure to use the smooth version of a nut butter to maintain the fudge-like texture of the chocolate base. But we urge you to not substitute the pure maple butter.

Two heaping spoonfuls of pure maple butter rounds out these Chocolate Rice Cake Squares for a boost of decadence. Enjoy these squares as a snack while trying to decide what to make for dinner, or as dessert. Your future self will thank you for making a batch!
