  • 1 1/2 cups organic corn flakes
  • 3/4 cup drippy peanut butter
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon molasses optional
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips
  • 1 teaspoon coconut oil


  • Crush cornflakes: Place cornflakes in a small lunch-size plastic bag and crush into small pieces.
  • Heat peanut butter: Add peanut butter, maple syrup and molasses (if using) to a small saucepan over low-medium heat. Heat, while stirring until the mixture is combined. Don't overheat or you'll risk scorching the peanut butter.
  • Once well combined, remove from heat and stir in crushed corn flakes.
  • Spoon coated cornflakes into a silicone ice cube tray, filling each cavity about halfway.
  • Place ice cube tray in the freezer for bites to harden for at least 2 hours.
  • Melt chocolate: Once bites have hardened, place chocolate and coconut oil in a microwave safe bowl and melt in the microwave in 15 second increments, stirring between each. It shouldn't take longer than 1-2 minutes total for the chocolate to melt.
  • Pop bites out of the tray and place on platter lined with parchment. Dip/coat each into the melted chocolate, one at a time. Use a spoon to coat until completely covered. Place chocolate covered candy back on the platter lined with parchment. Repeat until all pieces are coated.
  • Freeze: Place bites back into the freezer to let the chocolate harden and enjoy!
  • Storage: Bites keep best stored in the freezer in an airtight container. They should last 1-2 months. Enjoy straight from the freezer.



  • If you don't have a silicone ice cube tray you can simply spread the mixture evenly over a parchment lined baking sheet. Let set in the freezer, chop into small squares and then dip each in chocolate as described above.
