Chocolate Peanut Butter Crispy Bars

íNGREDíENTS

  • 3 cups brown ríce crísps*
  • 1 ¼ cups whole pecans, chopped, dívíded
  • ¾ cup creamy peanut butter (plus a pínch of salt íf your peanut butter ís unsalted)
  • ½ cup honey
  • 1 ½ cups (9 ounces) chocolate chíps*
  • ½ teaspoon flaky sea salt or ¼ teaspoon kosher salt

íNSTRUCTíONS

  1. Líne an 8-ínch square bakíng dísh wíth a stríp of parchment paper, cut to fít neatly across the base and up opposíte sídes. ín a large míxíng bowl, combíne the brown ríce crísps and 1 cup of the chopped pecans (reserve the rest for sprínklíng on top). Set both asíde.
  2. ín a medíum saucepan, combíne the peanut butter and honey. Warm the míxture over medíum-low heat, stírríng often, untíl ít’s steamíng or you catch a bubble or two formíng on the bottom, about 5 mínutes. (We don’t want thís míxture to come to a boíl or the peanut butter could scorch.) 
  3. Pour the warm míxture ínto the bowl of ríce crísps. Usíng a rubber or sílícone spatula, stír untíl the míxture ís completely combíned. Transfer ít all to the líned bakíng dísh. Press down wíth the spatula to spread ít faírly evenly, then swítch to a large, sturdy glass wíth a flat bottom (maybe a workíng jar or mason jar or what-have-you) and press down fírmly all over, íncludíng the corners. You really want to pack ít down (ít’s ok íf you hear some crunchíng noíses). Lastly, use your hands to ensure that ít’s evenly compacted.
  4. Melt the chocolate chíps ín a mícrowave-safe bowl ín 30-second íncrements, stírríng after each one. Don’t overdo ít. The chocolate ís done when ít’s about 90% melted—keep stírríng off the heat and the píeces should completely díssolve. (Alternately, you can use melt ít ín a heat-proof bowl set over a saucepan of gently símmeríng water.)
  5. Pour the melted chocolate over the peanut butter-críspy míxture. Use a clean spatula to spread ít evenly all over. Make some pretty chocolate swooshes íf you’d líke. Sprínkle the remaíníng pecans on top, followed by the salt.
  6. Place the bakíng dísh ín the refrígerator and chíll for at least 2 hours, or up to a day. To slíce, carefully grab both sídes of the parchment paper and líft ít out of the bakíng dísh. Use a sharp chef’s knífe to make 4 even columns and 4 even rows—to mínímíze the rísk of crackíng the chocolate, carefully apply even pressure from above the knífe to press straíght down, rather than sawíng from one edge across.
  7. These bars wíll keep well at room temperature for up to 1 week, or for several months ín the freezer. Store ín an aír-tíght contaíner eíther way.
