Chocolate Hazelnut Rice Pop Bars - No Bake!

Turn your favourite cocoa pops into these delicious hazelnut chocolate cereal bars!

I have been wanting to create this recipe for so long - in fact I bought these cocoa pops back in September because they were reduced to 44p! Can you believe it? All because the box was a little bit tattered, but no harm to the cocoa pops. These are Sainsburys own range - Deliciously Free From Chocolate Rice Pops, and as far I can tell, they are vegan friendly so I snapped them up when I saw what a bargain they were. Oh and don't worry, the Best Before Date isn't until April so I knew I had plenty of time to use them :) I've always loved a cereal bar since I was little and I've not had one for a long time. These aren't really a breakfast cereal bar because of the chocolate and syrup etc, but they make a very tasty snack. I've used Nomo's Hazelnot Chocolate Crunch bar because these cocoa pops needed something a little extra and this chocolate is so delicious! Personally I find it hard to appreciate vegan chocolate, but Nomo is by far the best out there I cannot fault their products so try to use their chocolate where possible. 

If you don't like hazelnuts, you could swap the chocolate for a bar of your choice, and swap the hazelnut butter for a spread of you choice as well, no problems! I might even do another version with almonds and peanuts for my nutty-lovers out there!
