As a kid, I used to absolutely love rice crispy treats. They’re sweet, crunchy, and delicious, and they inspired me to make this healthy peanut butter and chocolate version of the delicious dessert. I hope you love these vegan chocolate rice crispy treats as much as I do!

What you will need:

The ingredients in this recipe are few and simple. You will need peanut butter, maple syrup, vanilla, brown rice cereal, and chocolate. You can use vegan chocolate chips or a dark chocolate bar for this recipe.

Sometimes brown rice cereal is also called brown rice crisps. It is usually located it in the cereal section of most grocery stores, especially health food stores. All that it is is popped brown rice. It doesn’t have a whole lot of flavor on its own and it’s really crunchy, which makes it perfect for this recipe.

Making your vegan chocolate rice crispy treats:

Start by combining the peanut butter, maple syrup, and vanilla in a bowl.

Blend until smooth & then pop them in the microwave for about 30 second. You want the mixture to be runny, so that it mixes well with the rice crisps.

Add the brown rice cereal to the peanut butter mix and combine. Be careful when you are combining them, as the brown rice cereal breaks and becomes crumbly very easily.

Once you have mixed the brown rice cereal and peanut butter, transfer the mixture to a small square or rectangular baking dish. Use your fingers or a spatula to squish down the top and make it even.

Place the mixture in the refrigerator and cool for about 30 minutes.

After the rice crispy treats have cooled, cut them into rectangular pieces.

Adding the chocolate:

Melt the chocolate or chocolate chips in the microwave. Do this by placing the chocolate in a microwavable bowl and microwaving it for 30 second increments.

Also line a baking sheet with parchment paper or aluminum foil. Since you will be dipping the bars in chocolate, this will help you minimize the mess. Melted chocolate that has hardened can be hard to clean off.

After you have your melted the chocolate, dip the bottom of the treats into chocolate and lay on the baking sheet to cool. Do this until all of the treats have been dipped in chocolate.

Add the remaining melted chocolate to a ziplock baggie.

Cut off a small corner of the bag and drizzle the remaining chocolate on top of the treats.

Pop the treats back in the fridge for at least another 30 minutes, until the chocolate hardens.
