Ingredients

  • 6 rice cakes
  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips (I used 65% dark)
  • Chopped nuts or dried fruit (optional)

Instructions

  • Preheat oven 350 degrees F (180 C). Place rice cakes on rack and toast in the oven for 5 minutes to crisp up. Let cool completely.
  • Melt chocolate chips in microwave-safe bowl for 1 minute. Stir. Microwave at 15 second intervals until chocolate chips are completely melted, stirring after each 15 seconds.
  • Spread melted chocolate onto rice cake evenly with back of spoon. Place on rack.
  • If desired, top rice cakes with chopped nuts, fruits, seeds, etc., pressing gently into chocolate.
  • Move to the refrigerator for the chocolate to harden completely.
  • Store rice cakes in an airtight container in the fridge.

Notes

  • You can also melt the chocolate using the double-boiler method.
  • If using the microwave to melt the chocolate chips, using a shallow bowl where the chips are mostly in one layer yields the best results.
  • You can also dip the rice cake into the melted chocolate, but you will still end up having to spread the chocolate with a spatula or back of a spoon to even it out.
  • I like using dark chocolate chips, but try it with different chocolates: milk, semi-sweet, mint, etc.
  • Do a swirl of two different chocolates!
  • Top with chopped nuts, seeds, dried fruit, sea salt, pomegranate seeds, etc.
  • Keep in a sealed container in the fridge.
