Chocolate Covered Crispy Rice Bites are my new favorite snack treat to make for the kids (and myself)! Crispy rice cereal enveloped in almond butter with a touch of sweetness and finally dipped in decadent chocolate… what’s not to love? 


These little chocolate covered morsels really hit the spot when you’re wanting a sweet treat that doesn’t send you into a sugar overload like some candy can. I’m making a huge batch of these Chocolate Covered Crispy Rice Bites for my kids for Valentine’s Day this year, but these are delicious year round. A great treat to keep on hand in the freezer too!


My kids love anything bite sized, so I’m always coming up with recipes they can eat easily on the go. I’ve made tons of recipes over the years like Protein BallsChewy Granola BallsCoconut Peanut Butter Oatmeal Balls or No Bake Cookie Dough Balls. I try to keep them as healthy as possible too so it’s a no brainer when snack time comes around. 


These are a little more decadent than most of my other bite-size snacks, but they’re still packed with protein thanks to the nut butter. One bite and you’ll be hooked! They’re crispy from the rice cereal and sweet from the chocolate and oh so delicious. Good luck eating just a couple!


Every year I throw my kids a special Valentine’s Day party. We all love it and it’s so fun to see them get excited about all the treats we get to have. I’ve cycled through tons of cute Valentine’s recipes over the years like Raspberry Cream Cheese Heart TartsChocolate Chip Cookie CakePuff Pastry Berry Hearts and so much more, but this year these Chocolate Covered Crispy Rice Bites will definitely be on the menu.
