Homemade Crunch Bars are an easy to make 3-ingredient recipe. If you love rich, chocolaty crisp candy bars, you will love this quick no-bake recipe.
What is your favorite candy bar? I have many I love very much, but there is one in particular that I like because it’s light & yet rich, chocolaty with crunch. Crunch candy bars are something I crave. But I crave these Homemade Crunch Bars even more.
You see, I never know when the craving will strike. But when it does, it is nice to know that I can take just a couple minutes in the kitchen to whip up a batch that makes enough for the whole family to indulge after dinner. Seriously, it only takes a few minutes of prep & 3-ingredients (yep, just 3), a couple hours in the freezer to firm & that is it.

What you want to do is combine the chocolate & coconut oil in a bowl & pop it in the microwave on 30 second increments. Then once it is completely melted & silky smooth you fold in your crisp cereal until it is all coated. Spread it out in a small pan & freeze for a couple hours before cutting. That is it. Anyone can do this.
Commonly asked questions…
Can I make these vegan or gluten-free?
Yes – you can. Most chocolate chips are already gluten-free. But you can pick up vegan chocolate chips for this. You can also use vegan gluten-free brown rice crisp cereal for this dessert.
How do I store these?
You can use an airtight container & keep them either in the refrigerator or a cool pantry. Obviously, if it’s winter, these would probably be fine at room temperature depending on how warm you keep your home. When I make these in the summer I like to store in the refrigerator.
