Chocolate Salted Rice Cakes

Serves: 4

Prep Time: 10 minutes


  • 8 large rice cakes or 16 mini-rice cakes, unsalted (thinner rice cakes are better)
  • Coarse sea salt
  • 3 ounces chocolate (I prefer semisweet or milk chocolate for this.)


  1. Melt chocolate in the microwave for one minute, and then in increments of 30 seconds until chocolate is melted through.  
  2. It took 90 seconds to melt the chocolate I used.
  3. Using a pastry brush, brush one side of the rice cakes with chocolate, and rest on a cooling rack with a piece of wax paper underneath to catch any dripping chocolate.

    It’s so simple to make this low-calorie, sweet-and-salty snack – all it takes are 3 ingredients and a microwave.

  4. Sprinkle sea salt onto chocolate while still melted, and pop into the refrigerator for 15 minutes to harden.
  5. Don’t overdo the salt – remember, it’s just a taste to pique the tastebuds! Serve.
