Author's Notes

You can easily purchase chocolate peanut butter rather than making your own, or substitute it with Nutella.

Store any remaining chocolate peanut butter spread in the refrigerator in an airtight container. Allow it to come to room temperature to spread.
Cooking InstructionsHide images
step 1
Mix your chocolate peanut butter spread by combining Peanut Butter (1/2 cup), Unsweetened Cocoa Powder (2 Tbsp), and Honey (2 Tbsp) in a small bowl. Mix until a smooth consistency is reached and cocoa powder is all mixed in.
step 2
To assembly animal faces, line up Rice Cakes (10), then choose your base spread. I used the chocolate peanut butter spread for the monkeys and one fish then used the regular Peanut Butter (1/3 cup) for the dogs and remaining fish.
step 3
Gather together Banana (1), Apple (1), Fresh Blueberry (1 handful), Mini Chocolate Chips (1 handful), Unsalted Cashews (1 handful), and Dried Fruits (to taste) on your work station, to assemble and decorate the animal faces.
step 3 Gather together Banana (1), Apple (1), Fresh Blueberry (1 handful), Mini Chocolate Chips (1 handful), Unsalted Cashews (1 handful), and Dried Fruits (to taste) on your work station, to assemble and decorate the animal faces.
step 4
For the monkeys, spread out your nut butter of choice, I made mine more of an oval shape than completely round like the rice cake. Drizzle with a little extra Honey (to taste), if desired. Then cut your banana to make the upper and lower part of the nose/snout. Finally, add the cashews for the ears and baking chips for the eyes.
step 5
For the fish, spread out your nutter butter of choice over the whole rice cake, drizzle with a little extra honey, if desired. Then cut a small triangle out of a couple of the banana circles to make the back fin. Put that on the far side of the rice cake, slightly hanging off, then layer 3-4 round banana slices to create the scales.
step 6
Finally, select a small blueberry for the eye and a piece of dried fruit for the mouth or a little apple slice.
step 7
For the dog: Spread out your nutter butter of choice over the whole rice cake, again, drizzle extra Honey (to taste) if desired, then use the thinly sliced, half-circle apples to create the dog ears. Use small blueberries for the eyes, then a banana slice and blueberry for the mouth/nose.
step 8
Serve and Enjoy!
