  • 1 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 6 cups crispy cocoa rice cereal
  • 1 1/2 cups semi sweet chocolate chips


  • In a large heavy bottom pot melt the honey and brown sugar together over medium high heat until mixture begins to thicken and bubble. 
  • Remove from heat, and stir in peanut butter and cinnamon until mixture is creamy and smooth
  • Stir in cereal, and mix until well coated
  • Spoon mixture into greased 9 X 13-inch pan, and top with chocolate chips, spreading evenly until chips are melted. Top with extra cereal, if desired, for added crunch
  • Refrigerate for 1/2 hour, or until firm


These were made with organic cocoa crispy rice cereal, but a brand name, such as Rice Krispies would work, too.
