If you loved Rice Krispies Treats as a kid, or even as an adult, you must make this recipe. We’ve swapped out the traditional gooey marshmallows and replaced them with a combo of tahini and honey. Then, we smothered the top in a chocolate-tahini ganache. They’re sweet, crunchy, chocolaty, nutty and so good that you will be making them again and again (and again!).



Tbsp butter or coconut oil
cup honey
cup plus 4 Tbsp tahini
cups puffed rice
cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
Pinch of sea salt
tsp sesame seeds


Step 1

Place a large pot on the stove over medium-low heat.

Step 2

Melt the butter in the pot, then pour in the honey and  ⅔ cup tahini . Mix to combine.

Step 3

Add in the puffed rice and stir so that the rice is fully coated in the tahini-honey mixture.

Step 4

Butter a 6×10-inch baking dish and line with parchment paper.

Step 5

Pour the puffed rice into the baking dish and flatten it with the back of a spatula or using the bottom of a cup.

Step 6

Put the dish in the freezer for 5 minutes to harden while you make the chocolate tahini topping.

Step 7

Place a small pot over medium-low heat. Add in the chocolate chips, the rest of the tahini and a pinch of salt. Continue to stir until the chocolate is melted and smooth.

Step 8

Take the treats out of the freezer, drizzle the chocolate on top, use a spatula or a spoon to spread out evenly, then top with sesame seeds.

Step 9

Place back in the freezer for 25-30 minutes for the chocolate to set.

Step 10

Once the chocolate is hard, remove from the freezer, slice into squares and store in an airtight container in the fridge.
