peanut butter crispy treat nutella sandwiches

Happy, Happy, Joy, Joy!

This is Jennifer from Savor the Thyme and that is how I felt after getting to spend some time with Jenna last year. I felt the same way again when she guest posted on my site and then when she asked me to come hang with you all here.  I am happy to have met Jenna as not only is she a top-notch person, but we bonded over a similar personal circumstance and I will forever remember our conversation at that blogging event.

At said blogging event, we were able to ‘ooh’ and ‘ahh’ over lots of tasty dishes. However, both Jenna and I agreed we were craving a different dessert offering. For me, I love sweet but not too heavy type of desserts and I think I have a doozy for you!

One of the most popular recipes on my site is my brown rice crispy treats. You can adapt the recipe by using whatever nut butters and even include a multitude of dried fruits however, I went all out this time by using Nutella.  Yes peeps, I said Nutella.

Peanut Butter Crispy Treat Nutella ‘Sandwiches’

(serving vary based on size and thickness of pieces you cut but should yield about 10)

Print this recipe!


1/2 cup peanut butter*

1/2 cup honey

1/3 cup plus, 1/2 cup Nutella

5 cups crispy brown rice cereal

Cooking spray


Combine peanut butter, honey and novella in a medium size bowl, mix and microwave for 30 seconds at 50% power. If the nut butter is not melted, repeat for another 20 seconds. Mix well.

Add brown rice cereal to the nut butter-honey mixture, 1 to 2 cups at a time and stir to combine until mixture is sticky.

Spray a large casserole dish with non-stick spray and evenly distribute the mixture.

Place in the refrigerator to chill for at least 30 – 40 minutes (I covered with plastic wrap and refrigerated overnight).

Cut into approx. 2 x 2 inch pieces and slather half of them with Nutella. Top with remaining crispy pieces and serve.

*Please feel free to use any nut butter however, you may need to warm it for a shorter time if it is thinner or less viscous than peanut butter.

Please come on by to Savor the Thyme and stay as long as you like. Heck, come by each day and enjoy some nibbles. I like to share.

    Jennifer, these look so good! My whole family isn’t big on heavy sweets – we like a cookie or a cup of ice cream and I think we would all love these. Particularly my dad who loves anything with Nutella 🙂
