Scotacharoo Bars:

Chocolate topping (optional):


  • Prepare a 9x9-inch square pan by lining with parchment paper or waxed paper. Set aside.
  • In a small microwavable bowl, combine the honey, SunButter, and coconut oil. I usually have to heat my honey for 20 seconds to make it mixable.
  • Whisk the vanilla into the honey mixture.
  • In a large bowl, add the honey mixture to the the rice crispy cereal and mix to coat well.
  • Scoop the coated cereal into the prepared pan and press firmly into the pan.
  • Chill in the fridge until well set and firm throughout.
  • If you want to put chocolate on top, melt 1 cup chocolate chips and 1 teaspoon coconut oil in a medium bowl in 20-30 second intervals, stirring between heating segments, until the chocolate melts completely. Pour the chocolate over the cereal mixture and spread evenly. Chill in the fridge until the chocolate and the bars are completely set. 
  • Cut into 12 bars and enjoy!


Because these bars have coconut oil in them, they are best stored in the fridge.
