I don’t even remember when I first started making these EASY chocolate crunch bars.

All I know is that I have been making a batch of these crunch candy bars every month, for a few years now.

You only need 2 ingredients to make this chocolate crunch bar recipe:

  • Melted chocolate
  • Crispy rice cereal

But sometimes, I like to give these bars a boost of NUTRITION by tossing a few additional ingredients like Vital Proteins collagen peptides or collagen whey and even peanut butter.

Basically, you just MIX together the chocolate and cereal, SPREAD the mixture in candy bar molds and CHILL until the chocolate becomes firm.

This is also a GREAT recipe to make with kids and get them involved in the kitchen.

My son LOVES these bars!

His FAVORITE are the dark chocolate crunch bars but my dear husband is very fond of the white chocolate crunch bars.

Easy No Bake Chocolate Crunch Bars Recipe 10Here are some TIPS for making perfect chocolate crunch bars:

  • I added a little bit of peanut butter in this recipe to give these bars a hint of peanut flavor. However, you can use any type of nut butter you like OR you can omit peanut butter, altogether.
  • If you want to make vegan chocolate crunch bars, use vegan chocolate and omit collagen peptides.
  • Store leftovers in a sealed container at room temperature or in the fridge for up to 1 week.
  • You can use whatever chocolate you prefer in this recipe: dark chocolate, semisweet chocolate, white chocolate.
  • You can purchase candy bar molds from Amazon or Hobby Lobby. They are very cheap ($2 -$3) and there are many designs to choose from.
