Over the years, TikTok users have certainly come up with some interesting and delicious food trends. The recipe that’s going viral on the platform these days is an upgraded version of rice cakes. This healthy snack is made much tastier and more filling with the addition of delicious layers of peanut butter and chocolate!
Enhance the Classic Rice Cake
Many people have rice cakes in their cupboards for when they feel like having a healthy, low-calorie snack. The problem is that, although they’re good for you, rice cakes tend to be bland, so they’re not the first thing most people reach for. This food trend was designed to change all that and make rice cakes something to really start looking forward to! Add smooth peanut butter to contrast the crunchiness of the cake and a topping of chocolate to satiate the sweet tooth!
Be Generous With the Peanut Butter
Choose your favorite type of peanut butter, be it smooth or chunky, and spread a generous amount on your rice cake. Around one or two teaspoons should be enough for an average-sized rice cake. Depending on what you like, melt some dark, milk, or white chocolate in a saucepan. When it’s slightly cooled but still melted and spreadable, top the rice cake with the chocolate or dip the surface in to get an even coating. Sprinkle the top with some sea salt and put the rice cake in the freezer for ten minutes.
Customization Options Are Endless
Of course, there are many ways to customize this recipe to suit your preferences. Instead of peanut butter, you can use any sort of nut or seed-based butter you enjoy most. Other topping options can include shredded coconut, chopped nuts, pomegranate seeds, dried fruit, or even cereal pieces. Whichever toppings you decide on, you’ll still get to enjoy all the contrasting flavors and textures that bring a humble rice cake to a whole new level!
