Chocolate Sunflower Butter Krispy Treats

These are a healthier version of the standard Rice Crispy Treats. I still won't claim these are completely "healthy" but they are great for an occasional sweet treat, and much better than the original! Enjoy these sparingly...if you can...it's hard to just eat one! These are amazingly good!

Ingredients:
1/2 cup raw honey
1/2 cup organic sunflower butter
1/2 cup fluff (look for a brand without dyes in it. Jet Puff has blue dye, which is odd since it's white. Some health stores carry RiceMellow Fluff, which works if you can find it)
2 tb organic butter
1/2 ts good salt
5 cups Koala Krisp cereal (this is an organic gluten free chocolate version of Rice Crispy cereal)
1 cup organic chocolate chips, for topping

Line two 8x8 baking dishes with parchment paper. In a large saucepan over medium heat, combine honey, sunflower butter,salt, butter, and fluff. Heat and stir until melty and well combined. Remove from heat and stir in cereal until well combined. Divide between the baking dishes. Place in freezer for 5 minutes. Meanwhile melt chocolate chips in a double boiler. Take dishes out of freezer and spread melted chocolate over the top. Place bake in the freezer for 15 more minutes. Remove from freezer and slice into squares with a sharp knife, carefully. Store in an airtight container in the fridge. They stay firm at room temperature for awhile, but I've never left them sitting out for more than a few hours, so I don't know beyond that.
Enjoy!
