Over the last few years, countless TikTok trends have taken over our feeds—from pasta chips to pesto eggs, and even cloud bread—it's hard to resist these internet food sensations. But the latest TikTok recipe may be one of the best to grace our screens in a while, because it's salty, sweet, and doubles as a healthy snack or dessert alternative. Say hello to the viral Giant Peanut Butter Rice Cake.
Rice cakes are always good to have on hand in the pantry, but they're one of those health-conscious snacks that need a little something extra to enhance the otherwise dry, boring taste. And what combination is better than creamy peanut butter and chocolate? Now you can skip the processed candy bars and baked goods, and satisfy your sweet tooth with this giant PB rice cake that takes only 10 minutes to whip up and calls for just four ingredients.
To make a Giant Peanut Butter Rice Cake, just spread about 1-2 tablespoons of your favorite peanut butter (or any nut or seed butter) on a rice cake and then dip the top in a bowl of melted chocolate. Sprinkle some flaky sea salt on top and pop the rice cake in the freezer for 10 minutes until the chocolate hardens. It truly doesn't get easier than that!
As with many TikTok food trends, there are endless ways to customize this popular snack. In addition to using whatever nut butter and chocolate combination you love the most (don't sleep on dark chocolate and pistachio butter!) you can also get creative with toppings. Instead of (or in addition to) a sprinkling of flaky sea salt, try adorning your rice cake with shredded coconut, dried fruit, and/or chopped nuts. Pomegranate seeds, a dollop of tahini, or cereal pieces also work well. And if you don't have any chocolate on hand to melt, reach for some chocolate hazelnut spread or cookie butter instead. No matter what toppers you choose, we promise you won't be disappointed.
