Ingredients
  • ¼ cup butter (or coconut oil or vegan margarine)
  • ¼ cup syrup (I used brown rice syrup)
  • 3 Tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 3 cups puffed rice
  • 1 Tbsp NuNaturals NuStevia Cocoa Syrup *
Instructions
  1. In a medium saucepan, melt butter.
  2. Add syrup and whisk until heated and boiling.
  3. Remove from heat, whisk in cocoa powder and stevia chocolate syrup.
  4. Fold in puffed rice and keep mixing until the puffed rice is completely coated with the chocolate mixture.
  5. Meanwhile, mist an 8x8 or 9x9 pan with oil, add in puffed rice mixture and press firmly into the pan.
  6. To avoid the mixture sticking to your hands, place a sheet of plastic wrap over top when pressing in the mixture.
  7. Allow to chill in the fridge for at least 20-30 minutes. Cut into 16 squares.
  8. Keep stored in the fridge with the pan covered or transfer the squares to a sealed container.
Notes
* If you don't have the stevia cocoa syrup, you could sub for extra brown rice syrup, or stevia drops or stevia packets. Use to taste.
