4-Ingredient Scotcheroo Bites

These 4-Ingredient Scotcheroo Bites have the perfect combination of sweet and salty.  A healthier version of the classic Scotcheroos, these chocolate covered scotcheroo bites are made with only 4 healthy ingredients and a little sprinkle of sea salt.

Prep: 15 minutesTotal: 15 minutes
Servings: 24 mini Scotcheroos 1x


  • 4 cups crispy brown rice cereal (Rice Krispies are a great sub although not gluten-free)
  • 1/4 cup honey (may sub maple syrup for vegan-friendly)
  • 3/4 cup creamy peanut butter (for nut-free, use sunflower seed butter)

For the chocolate topping:


  1. In a food processor, add the crispy brown rice cereal, honey, and peanut butter. Process for two 10-second bursts, scraping sides at each interval. Continue to mix until the mixture is well blended and forming a ball.  
  2. Scoop out the mixture by the spoonful and evenly fill a 24 mini muffin tin. Press mixture very firmly into the muffin tin.
  3. Place in the freezer for about 30 minutes or until frozen. 
  4. In a small saucepan, over low heat, add the chocolate chips, peanut butter, and coconut oil. Stir constantly until all chocolate chips have melted. A microwave also works for this step. 
  5. Remove the muffin pan from the freezer and remove Scotcheroos from the pan and place on a parchment-lined plate or pan. To remove, use a knife to slide between the scotcheroo bite and the pan. Then gently lift up. Place a spoonful of melted chocolate on top of each Scotcheroo. Smooth with the back of a spoon.
  6. Sprinkle with a few crushed peanuts and/or sea salt. Place back in the freezer. Serve once the chocolate has set.


  • Keep in the freezer until ready to serve.
  • Store leftovers in an airtight container in the freezer.
