Vanilla Espresso Almond Crunch Bars

You know crunch bars?  They remind me of the candy you get on Halloween.  Well, I made a healthier, simpler version using only 5 ingredients; one of the ingredients being Wild Friends Vanilla Espresso Almond Butter.  

Recipe: (makes 8-10 bars)

  • 2 cups dark chocolate chips
  • 1 Tablespoon coconut oil
  • 1/3 cup Wild Friends Vanilla Espresso Almond Butter
  • 1 Cup chocolate (or regular) rice cereal
  • slivered almonds, for topping


  • In a double broiler, melt chocolate chips, almond utter, and coconut oil until smooth – set a small amount aside for drizzling later!
  • Add rice cereal to melted chocolate mixture and mix together until coated.
  • Spread mixture out evenly in a small rectangular pan or cookie sheet (about 1 inch thick.)
  • Freeze for 20-30 minutes.
  • Slice into bars, drizzle with the rest of the chocolate mixture and add almonds.
  • Freeze bars for another 10 minutes.
  • Serve & enjoy!
