Friends, it is time to say goodbye to plain ole’ boring rice cakes. While rice cakes can be crispy and delicious when they’re topped with delicious dips and spreads, they are not something that should be eaten alone. There’s a stigma within diet culture that rice cakes are a low-calorie food that should be eaten alone, instead of chips or crackers, to help you lose weight. And I am here to say BYE-BYE to that silly belief!

As someone who struggled with an eating disorder in the past (which you can read about here), I can tell you firsthand that life is too short to eat boring, albeit “healthy” foods. You don’t need to suffer and eat plain rice cakes all day for the sake of “health and wellness.” In fact, I’m here to tell you that you can eat this delicious, chocolate and peanut butter-covered rice cake and STILL be healthy. It’s all about using real, simple, whole foods to create a recipe that is both healthy and delicious!

Let’s Talk About Viral TikTok Recipes

If you’ve yet to make your way onto #FoodTikTok, let this be your sign to do it NOW! TikTok is changing the game when it come to food blogs and recipe development, and there are so many delicious and exciting new recipes popping up on the app, every single day. My first take on the viral recipes was my Pasta Chips last year, and since then, I’ve been having so much fun putting my own twist on these now-famous recipes!

From my Custard Toast to my Shredded Carrot Salad and even my take on the Buffalo Corn Ribs that took over TikTok feeds last summer, these recipes are such fun and unique twists on ingredients that you may already know and love!

That’s why I’m so excited to be sharing this rice cake recipe. I saw it floating around TikTok and first on Instagram on my girl Monique of Ambitious Kitchen‘s page.

It is a simple and easy take on a treat that anyone can enjoy! And the best part is, it’s so customizable. If you’re nut-free, simply use sunflower seed butter! If you’re vegan and/or dairy-free, use vegan-friendly chocolate.

The opportunities are endless here, and this is such a fun recipe to eat and play around with.

Pro tip: add ice cream, then add the melted chocolate and freeze. It will blow your mind.

What You Need to Make the Best Ever Delicious Rice Cake

All you need are four simple and easy ingredients to make the rice cake of your dreams! It could not be any easier, and if you’re like me, then you may already have these ingredients sitting in your pantry.

  • Rice Cake: Of course, rice cakes are the base for this recipe, so you’ll need one!
  • Peanut Butter: The combination of peanut butter and chocolate is truly unbeatable, but use whatever nut butter or nut-free alternative that you have! Almond or cashew butter would be delicious here, as would sunflower butter or granola butter for a nut-free alternative.
  • Dark Chocolate: My favorite dark chocolate is, hands-down, from Hu Kitchen. Their chocolate has no funky ingredients, and has the best flavor! And you can use code KALEJUNKIE for 15% off your order!
  • Coconut Oil: A little bit of coconut oil will help the dark chocolate melt!
  • Flaky Sea Salt: And of course, a touch of flaky sea salt adds the perfect balance of flavors. Don’t skip this!

How to Make This Quick and Easy 10 Minute Snack

Making this rice cake could not be easier! Simply take your rice cake and spread your peanut butter (or other spread) across it evenly.

Next, in a small bowl, add your chocolate and coconut oil. Microwave in two, 30-second increments, being sure to stir the chocolate and coconut oil together in-between.

Finally, drizzle your melted chocolate over the rice cake and add a touch of flaky sea salt. Freeze for 10 minutes, then remove from the freezer and enjoy!
