Ever made your own chocolate bar? These simple Triple Chocolate Crunch Bars are full of white, milk and dark chocolates. Pecans and crisped rice give them a nice crunch!
I love, love, love making my own homemade candies. If there were plate of cookies and a plate of homemade candies sitting in my kitchen, I’d go for the candies almost 100% of the time. Unless these cookies are on the plate. Which still proves my point because they are stuffed with candy.
Taking chocolate and turning it into something just a little more special for Valentine’s Day is a quick treat that your kids or grandkids might love to make with you.
Although I can eat chocolate just plain, I also like to make these simple little chocolate crunch bars. These sweet squares have dark chocolate, milk chocolate and white chocolate. Is white chocolate officially a chocolate? Ok…maybe not. But we’re calling it chocolate today.
A trifecta of chocolates.
The “crunch” in these homemade candy bars come from crisped rice cereal and chopped pecans. You can use any type of nut that you’d like…even coconut! If your kids aren’t into nuts, use double the amount of crisped rice. I chopped the pecans finely and my nut-despising children didn’t even know they were eating them. Or they just decided this chocolate was too good to worry about a little nut here or there.
The triple chocolate crunch bars take no time at all to come together. You’ll melt together the dark and milk chocolates along with the butter and coconut oil. You can use a double boiler to melt the chocolate which is super easy. Another way to melt the chocolate is simply in the microwave. The key to melting chocolate in the microwave is to melt it very slowly. Heat in a microwave safe bowl for 45 seconds and then mix. Then microwave for 30 seconds and mix. Then heat in 15 second intervals, mixing between each interval until the chocolate is smooth.
Next, you’ll add some white chocolate chips, then add chopped pecans and crisped rice. Spread all of this on a parchment-lined cookie sheet, top it with sprinkles if you’d like and pop it into the fridge for about 30 minutes or until the chocolate is set.
In about 35 minutes you have your very own chocolate bars. Perfect for your child’s lunch, a Valentine’s party, someone special that you love, or just for rainy (or snowy) day.
