Introduction: Nice Crispy Treats

A quick and easy, VEGAN and (somewhat) healthier version of Rice Krispie Treats…+ Chocolate!

That’s why they’re so nice!

Step 1: Ingredients

For the Bars:

  • 1/2 cup Brown Rice Syrup (you can substitute corn syrup - but i'm not sure the bars could still be considered "nice")
  • 1/2 cup Maple Syrup
  • 1/2 cup Dark Chocolate Chips
  • 2 TBS Coconut Oil
  • Pinch of Sea Salt

For the Chocolate Topping:

  • 3/4 cup Dark Chocolate Chips
  • 2 TBS Coconut Oil

Additional Toppings (optional - but tasty)

  • 1/4 cup toasted nuts - chopped (almond, macadamia, hazelnut, etc.)
  • Sprinkling of cocoa nibs
  • Pinch of flaky salt

Step 2: In a Large Saucepan:

  • Over medium heat, bring the Brown Rice Syrup and Maple Syrup to a gentle boil.
  • Boil for 1 minute; continuously stirring with a heat proof spatula.

Step 3: Remove Saucepan From Stovetop

  • Add the almond butter, 1/2 cup Dark Chocolate Chips, 2 TBS Coconut Oil, and a pinch of sea salt.
  • Stir, stir, stir ... Until chocolate is melted and mixture is smooth.

Step 4: Fold in Puffed Cereal

Step 5: Press Mixture Into a Parchment Lined 8x8 Inch Square Pan

Hint: Dampen your fingers with water or coconut oil before beginning this step.

Step 6: Make Chocolate Topping

  1. In the original saucepan, over medium heat, melt 3/4 cup Dark Chocolate Chips with 2 TBS coconut oil.
  2. When the chocolate chips are melted, pour over the puffed cereal.
  3. Smooth topping with spatula.
  4. Add toppings of choice.
  5. Refrigerate for 1 hour - or until topping is firm.

Step 7: Cut and Enjoy!

  • Use parchment to lift mixture out of the pan, cut into 16 2-inch squares.
  • Enjoy!
  • Note... Best eaten within 48 hours (trust - this is not a problem).
