Who doesn’t like good old-fashioned rice crispy treats? No one! They’re comforting, familiar and always satisfing to the sweet-tooth. The trouble is, these innocent-seeming snacks aren’t vegetarian friendly, or Kosher for that matter! Sure, marshmallows seem like the most harmless things in the world—all billowy and full of childlike whimsy, but, to my great dismay (and that of many other sugar-loving vegetarians) these classic confections get their consistency from gelatin, a meat by-product. For years I thought I had to say goodbye to one of my favorite childhood treats, but thanks to the sticky help of peanut butter and rice syrup, marshmallows have met their match! This rice crispy treat recipe has a chocolate twist, giving it a slightly more complex flavor then the Saran-wrapped ones you used to find in the school cafeteria. But not to fret: they haven’t grown too old for unicorns or the Tooth Fairy just yet…

Ingredients

  • 1 cup sugar Pantry
  • 1 cup corn or brown rice syrup $3
  • 1 cup peanut butter (or other nut butter) Pantry
  • 6 cups puffed rice cereal (or other puffed grain) $3
  • 2 cups non-dairy chocolate chips $3

Recipe Serves 8

Directions

  1. In a small saucepan over medium heat, mix together the sweetener and corn syrup until hot and bubbly. Remove from heat and add the nut butter, stirring together until well mixed. In a large bowl, add the puffed rice and chocolate chips. Stir in the nut butter mixture and mix together. Pour mixture into a 9x13 pan, press flat, and let cool for one hour before cutting into squares.
