Raw Chocolate & Coffee Bites

Recently I have been watching the food I have been snacking on.  I still have a few more kilo’s to lose to reach my goal so I am making sure I have something reasonably healthy in my fridge to satisfy my 4pm sweet craving. I am so excited to share with you this Raw Chocolate & […]

    Made the choc coffee bites this afternoon…great healthy snack Katrina.
    Am thinking the mixture could also work great made into balls (might have to chill mixture in fridge first) and rolled in coconut.

  • Bettina

    If I left out the coffe, would I need to make my other changes to the recipe, do you think?ReplyCancel

    • Katrina

      No Bettina, they would taste just as good!ReplyCancel

  • Barbie Roos.

    Wow.ThanksReplyCancel

  • Ok, these look delicious (drooling) and easy. Need to shop for ingredients and will be making shortly! Hope they turn out as great as these.ReplyCancel

    • Katrina

    would you replace the walnuts with more almonds to make it nut free?ReplyCancel

  • Katrina

    What a great idea, Kelly!ReplyCancel

    • Kelly

      So i made it but its a crumbly mess, i can still save it. Just wondering. i left the coffee out as i’m making it for the kids, 1tbs of instant coffee was that liquid or powder?ReplyCancel

      • Katrina

        Oh no Kelly, I used coffee powder and really pressed it well into the container and left it in the fridge, sometimes I have left it all day before I slice it, perhaps you may need to leave it longer??ReplyCancel

        • Kelly Holliday

          will do, i’ve packed it harder and i’ll leave it 24hrs.ReplyCancel

          • Katrina

            Let me know how it turns out :)

          • kelly

            i must have done something wrong because its still way crumbly, or perhaps the walnuts were needed? i only used almonds (added extra to make up for no walnuts). Maybe i needed more dates. I think i’ll try again another day. But now i have quite a tasty crumble, i think i’ll make some banana ice cream and use it as a topping. :) thanks

  • Kim Fairfull

    Could you leave the dates outReplyCancel

    • Katrina

      No Kim the dates are a really important element of the bites, helps to combine it all together.ReplyCancel

  • Boiled Eggs and Soldiers

    I just made these, it’s still chilling but the crumbs were delicious! Got treats for the in-laws who are staying for the weekend sorted now thank you!ReplyCancel

  • House of Nicnax

    Oh yum! These look delicious! Raw food is something that really interests me. I’m not brave enough to try to make any thing too complicated, but these seem easy enough! And to be truthful – you had me at “coffee” ! I think i’ll make these this week! Thanks for the recipe!

  • Sonya

    Sounds delish, however please be aware these CONTAIN NUTS (Nutella ) , so wouldn’t be recommended for school lunchboxesReplyCancel

  • Kate

    Am I missing something? Where are the smuggled vegetables in this recipe?ReplyCancel

  • Lisa

    My daughter is nut free with very serious allergies. This recipe looks great but would suggest replacing the Nutella with a product called Smudge made by Freedom Foods. It is nut, gluten and dairy free and obviously you are going to lose the smuggled goodness of nuts, but at least they will be lunchbox friendly.ReplyCancel

    • That’s a great suggestions Lisa, I will look into Smudge!

    • Liz @ eudora

      So glad to hear. Did you enjoy them?ReplyCancel

  • Danielle

    Wow, this sounds delicious! How long should we freeze them for, and do you then store them in the fridge – or keep them in the freezer? Thanks for sharing!ReplyCancel

    • Hi Danielle, Tammy has commented on here suggesting that you leave them in the freezer until they are ready to eat and leave the ones you won’t eat in the freezer.ReplyCancel

    • LIz @ Eudora

      Sorry I didn’t check back here sooner but exactly what Kat said. I hope you enjoyed them :) ReplyCancel

  • Tammy

    I have this in the freezer right now – not sure how long to freeze it for though!ReplyCancel

    • Liz @ Eudora

      Not long at all, about 20mins. You don’t want the chocolate to hard to bite into. I hope you enjoyed them :) ReplyCancel

  • Tammy

    Just read this on FaceBook:

    Freeze them until set. You can remove them from freezer for about an hour before serving them so they are not to hard to bite into. But only take out of the freezer what you are going to consume as the banana can go a little yucky if left to longReplyCancel

    • thanks for the info Tammy, did your family enjoy them?ReplyCancel

    • Liz@eudora

      Hi Tammy, I only just checked the comments for my recipe. You are right – freeze them until set. And the banana does go yucky so only put out what you are going to consume. Thanks for letting everyone else know :) ReplyCancel

    This is a great recipe . I made it last week and it was a hit . Made a different version today from another site ( cause I couldn’t find this one ) and it is a bit disappointing . I’m printing this one out now for future reference.ReplyCancel

    if you change the SR flour to all plain flour it makes a more dense and fudge base. just saying its a different variation and very yummy. thanks for the recipe.ReplyCancel

Mars Bar Rice Bubble Slice

  • What was the size of the Mars bars used?ReplyCancel

  • Janette

    What size mars bars and chocolate melts we are in Canada sizes would be great, thanks.
    ReplyCancel

  • Mel

    You could basically set any slice into individual muffin sizes. I set cheese cake in muffin tins. Great idea that is. My eldest is finally off to preschool this year, and I’m liking that idea. Tomorrow is my cooking day. I best fine my mini muffin tinsReplyCancel

  • Amanda

    A couple of weeks ago I made Mars Bar Slice (think it was same recipe as this but without the extra choc) – for a change I just put spoonfuls into small truffle patty cases and sprinkled with 100′s and 1000′s then set in fridge. The kids loved them and they were a good snack size for a treat.ReplyCancel

    • That’s a cute idea, I had some today and cut off the choc tops, was still really yummy without the chocolate.ReplyCancel

  • Guest

    They look fabulous!ReplyCancel

    Hi what I did what put them in the long skinny ice cube trays and they were not messy at all. I just added some wrapped up for school lunch and it was great :) ReplyCancel

    what is 180 C in Faranheit? Also what is a lamington pan and the measurement in inches? Is SR selfrising flour?ReplyCancel

    • Manny

      180C is roughly 350F (give or take a degree or two) Here in Australia a lamington tin is usually 8″x11″, and SR is self raising (rising)flour.ReplyCancel

    Hi Katrina, What a great recipe.  These look great and really easy to make.  Could you suggest any alternatives to peanut butter?ReplyCancel

    • Tanya

      If you are hoping to keep the sugar content down you could  replace the peanut butter with sunflower seed butter.  I think when I make this I will use puffed wholegrain rice which is slightly less refined and has more fibreReplyCancel

    • You can leave out the peanut butter all together (just reduce the amount of rice bubbles so that they still stick together). I’ve done this with great success (there’s a batch in the fridge right now). I’ve also tried lots of variations including stirring through some hundreds and thousand or choc chips, I’ve even stirred through sultanas and chopped up dried apricots when i was trying to kid myself that I could make these a little healthier.ReplyCancel

  • MelTing

    Hi, Yes would love an alternative to pb as would like to make for school!ReplyCancel

  • try jersey caramels… work just as well as PB without the allergy issues  HTHReplyCancel

  • Yum! I love rice krispie treats, I bet they’re even better with PB. You call them rice bubbles? I will have to add this to my list of aussie vs american things I collected from my cousins. The social media icons look great! Thanks for your message! xo ReplyCancel

  • we make a similar LCM style bar. Melt 100g of butter, 1/2 c of sugar and 3 spoons of honey in a saucepan, bring to a simmering boil while stirring, simmer and stir for 5 minutes. Tip over 5 cups of ricebubbles and 1/2 cup of coconut, stir to combine then tip into prepared baking tray. I quite like this recipe because it has ingredients most people have in their pantry, you can delete the coconut if you wnat. Gluten free, fast to make and kids love it. You can add 100′s and 100′s to the top or choc chips if you like.ReplyCancel

      is that teaspoon or tablespoon of honeyReplyCancel

  • Toothfairy

    Just wondering how long these will keep?ReplyCancel

  • Sara

    My kids have loved these for years, but we use jersey caramels instead of peanut butter (I have also tried adding about a 1/4 block of melted copha in summer time it binds them together better)ReplyCancel

  • Lisa Flenley

    Yum! My girls will love these! are these freezable?ReplyCancel

    • Hi Lisa, No I wouldn’t freeze them, I would be afraid the rice bubbles would go soggy on defrosting. But in saying that I haven’t tried freezing them either.ReplyCancel

    Ummmm…… The marshmellows have high fructose corn syrup in them (this enters the body and the liver converts is straight to fat) When the body is overloaded with fat from so much fructose, your blood starts to thicken (doctors call it porridge and is a sign of heart disease and stroke) not only that if you think a little bit won’t hurt, look at how many things you eat each day have it in. If you are trying to lose weight run from Corn Syrup because it’s not used as energy by the body (like glucose) additives in these processed foods also harm little brains and bodies as well as the big ones. A little bit will hurt when we have so much of it. The processed food manuracturers don’t care about your health they care about your money. Lets all start reading and understanding the labels of the processed food we consume because we are making ourselves and our kids fat and unhealthy. It really is an easy thing to learn and when we educate ourselves as to what these ingredients and additives are we will all be a lot healthier, skinnier and smarter : )ReplyCancel
