Your favourite childhood snack, reimagined. Satisfy your peanut butter chocolate cravings with this protein-packed rice crispy square treat.
A note from Chef Ivan:
Two of my favourite things, crunchy peanut butter and chocolate. This treat is delicious and full of good things! I'm in bulking season so I treat myself to this after a long session of heavyweights and cardio. I added turmeric to reduce inflammation and black pepper for better absorption.
So easy to make! If you're feeling adventurous you can add pink peppercorn on top for a flavour explosion.
8 large squares or 16 small squares
