now I just need a jingle and some snazzy wrapping

I went to a convenience store for the first time in a couple weeks since quitting diet soda - and all of a sudden I was pretty reminded of how delicious candy bars are. I don't even like candy bars usually! But they looked really good that particular night.

So I went home and stirred together some no-stir peanut butter (ironical!), icing sugar, peanuts, crushed up rice cake, molasses, and salt, formed it into a log and coated it with some melted Cocoa Camino fruit & nut chocolate. Popped in a the freezer, then removed to get all soft and chewy again - it was so a real chocolate bar! It looked kinda like a turd. But tasted like a wunderbar, and I still have some left. :)

Brilliant idea! You didn't even have to bake it? You should make some more kinds, although I love chocolate and pb.

I love the word "turd". You made me laugh a lot with that one, thanks! Your candy bar look like the most yummy one ever. Turd-a-like or not.

Breaking up rice cakes to use in your candy bar is a brilliant idea!
