  • 1 (16 oz) jar all natural peanut butter room temperature, I like Crazy Richard’s
  • 3/4 cup light golden agave
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 (8 oz) box brown rice crisps cereal about 6 cups, I used One Degree Organic Foods, Veganic Sprouted Brown Rice Crisps
  • 2 (10 oz) packages vegan dark chocolate chips
  • 2 teaspoons coconut oil
  • Maldon sea salt for garnish


  • Grease 2 standard 12 slot muffin tins with cooking spray.*
  • Place peanut butter, agave, and salt together in a bowl.
  • Microwave for 30 seconds, or until everything is smooth and melty.
  • Stir to combine.
  • Add in rice crisps cereal and stir to combine.
  • Use a heaping 1/4 cup to scoop mixture into prepared pan.**
  • Use the back of the measuring cup to firmly compact the mixture.
  • Repeat with remaining mixture. Set aside.
  • Melt chocolate and coconut oil together in a large bowl.
  • Stir to combine.
  • Pour evenly over each muffin cup, about 2 tablespoons per cup.***
  • Sprinkle with maldon sea salt and chill in fridge until firm.
  • Let sit at room temperature for a couple minutes to easily remove the scotcheroos from the muffin tin. I use a knife to help.
  • Serve with a little extra salt, if desired, and enjoy!
  • Store leftovers in the fridge in a sealed airtight container and let come to room temperature for serving!
