  • Preparation time: 10 minutes plus chilling

Makes: 16


100g rice pops
50g salted peanuts, roughly chopped
300g dark chocolate
150g smooth peanut butter
100g golden syrup
1 tsp vanilla extract


1 Grease a 32cm x 22cm rectangular baking tin with butter and line with baking parchment, allowing the edges to overhang. 

2 Stir together the rice pops and peanuts in a large bowl until well mixed. 

3 Place the chocolate into a large heatproof bowl over a saucepan of boiling water. When the chocolate is melted, remove from the heat and stir in the peanut butter, golden syrup and vanilla extract until smooth.

4 Pour the dry ingredients into the chocolate mixture and combine until everything is really well coated. Press into the lined tin using the back of a wooden spoon, making sure the mixture is pressed right into the edges.

5 Allow to chill in the fridge for 1-2 hours, or preferably overnight. When set, slice into 16 bars.
