This past weekend I found some gluten free rice cakes that were dipped in dark chocolate at a store. They were so yummy but very pricey! So to cut down on the cost I decided to make my own chocolate dipped gluten free rice cakes…with a few extra goodies on top. I used the lightly salted rice cakes by Quaker and a bunch of gluten free ingredients that I already had on hand.
For these peanut butter cup ones I spread a few tablespoons of peanut butter on top of the rice cake and then spread some melted chocolate on top of the peanut butter. Then I topped it with some cut up Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups.
Next I made some Smore’s rice cakes. This time I spread the melted chocolate right on top of the rice cake and then topped it with some mini Marshmallow’s and some pieces bits of a Hershey’s chocolate bar. Then I drizzled a little more chocolate on top.
Then I made some healthier versions for myself. I am trying to loose a little bit of weight and wanted something sweet but still healthy and filling. This rice cake tastes similar to an Almond Joy candy bar. It is really yummy, trust me! To make this one I melted and spread 80% dark chocolate onto the rice cake and then topped it with sliced almonds and shredded coconut.
Then I made a peanut butter and dark chocolate rice cake. I spread some peanut butter onto the rice cake and then spread the melted dark chocolate on top of the peanut butter. I added a few chopped up peanuts and some Chia seeds to the top. Again, super yummy!
I stored mine in an air-tight container for a few days. Not sure how long they will keep beyond that because they went too fast.
Even the kids loved them. Although my son was not as big of fan of the rice cake. He said they tasted like Styrofoam. I’m still wondering how he knows what Styrofoam tastes like, but obviously Styrofoam tastes good because he asked me to make more.
Of course everyone’s favorite was the Resse’s Peanut Butter Cup one.
