How to Make Homemade Chocolate Crunch Bars
Break the chocolate into pieces (you can use milk, dark, or semi-sweet chocolate) and add to a microwave-safe bowl. Heat the chocolate in 30 second intervals until melted and smooth. Make sure to stir after each interval.
Add the Rice Krispies and fold in until fully coated in chocolate. Pour the mixture into a square baking pan lined with parchment or foil, and spread out evenly. Refrigerate until completely set – about 1 to 2 hours.
Once set, cut up into bars. This recipe will make 8 long bars (as pictured) or 16 square bars. These homemade crunch bars are perfect for sharing and gift-giving!
These Chocolate Crunch Bars are:
- deliciously creamy and thick
- super quick and easy to make
- the perfect ratio of chocolate to Rice Krispies!
- easily stored and are freezer-friendly
Got any crunch bars left? You can store them in an airtight container at room temperature or in the fridge for up to 3 weeks. Or freeze them for up to 2 months. Be sure to thaw them in the fridge overnight before serving. 🙂
If you’re making these chocolate crunch bars for a large crowd, I would double the recipe, and use a 9×13-inch baking pan. More to share!
