    • More crunch? Use a crunch peanut butter
    • No peanut butter? Try an almond or cashew butter

    • Add different toppings atop of the melted chocolate, like crushed up nuts or sliced fruit

    What Ingredients are Needed for the Giant Peanut Butter Cup Rice Cake?

    Rice Cake: Regular or a brown rice cake will work just fine!

    Peanut Butter: Creamy peanut butter since the rice cake will provide plenty of crunchy texture.

    Chocolate Chips: Dark or semi-sweet, I prefer Lily’s dark chocolate chips.

    Coconut Oil: To help melt the chocolate chips to a spreadable consistency.

    Cinnamon & Sugar: Optional topping that adds a nice touch! Omit if you prefer it without.
