Recipe Created By: Karen Eck


1/4 cup margarine
1 cup powdered sugar
1 cup sunflower seed butter
3 cups crispy rice cereal
1 1/2 cups chocolate chips
1/4 cup sunflower seed butter

Melt margarine on stove in large pot at medium-low heat. Add powdered sugar and 1 cup sunflower butter and mix well. Take mixture off stove and add cereal. Mix well. Put mixture in 8x8" pan and press down. Put in refrigerator to cool.

In the meantime, melt the chocolate chips and 1/4 cup sunflower butter in a saucepan on medium-low heat. Take the pan out of refrigerator and spread the melted chocolate mixture on top. Let cool. If desired, speed process by placing in freezer for 5-10 minutes.

Cut into small squares when cool. They are very rich.


Verify the ingredients of the crispy rice cereal.

Any safe nut or seed butter can use used instead of sunflower butter.

Butter and Margarine: Butter is a dairy product made from cow’s milk. Margarine typically contains milk or soy, but there are milk-free and soy-free versions available.

Corn Substitutions: Corn is a common ingredient in products. Starch, modified food starch, dextrin and maltodextrin can be from corn. Consult with your physician to find out which corn derivatives you need to avoid. Many corn-free options are available in the US. Find out more about corn substitutions.

Peanut Substitutions: There are many peanut-free products available in the US. Find out more about peanut substitutions.

Gluten: Gluten is a protein found in specific grains (wheat, spelt, kamut, barley, rye). Other grains are naturally gluten-free but may have cross-contact with gluten-containing grains. Look for certified gluten-free products if you need to avoid gluten. Find out more about wheat and gluten substitutions.

 Keep in Mind  
  1. Always read labels! Product ingredients can change without notice. Do not assume a recipe or product is safe for you. Contact manufacturers to confirm safety for your allergy needs.
  2. A check in a box on a recipe means you can make a recipe "free of" that allergen.  You may need to use a substitution or alternative product to make that recipe safe for the allergies you are managing.
  3. If you need assistance with a recipe or ingredient substitution, post on our Food & Cooking support forums. You will receive personal help to alter a recipe to make it allergy-free for your child’s needs.
