Description

Chocolate Peanut Butter Rice Crispy Treats (V, GF, DF): an easy 5 ingredient recipe for chocolate-topped PB rice crispy treats that taste like peanut butter cups. Vegan, Gluten Free, Dairy Free.


Ingredients

Scale

Rice Crispy Treats

  • 3 cups vegan gluten free brown rice crisp cereal
  • 1/3 cup unsalted peanuts, finely chopped
  • 1/3 cup unsalted, natural peanut butter
  • 1/3 cup pure maple syrup

Chocolate Topping

  • 1/3 cup vegan chocolate chips
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted, natural peanut butter

Instructions

  1. Make the rice crispy treats: Line an 8-inch square baking pan with wax paper, parchment or greased foil. Set aside for later. Add cereal and peanuts to a large mixing bowl. Stir together and set aside.
  2. In a small saucepan over medium-low heat, add peanut butter and maple syrup. Whisk until well incorporated. Then, stir occasionally, heating until this mixture begins to bubble. Stir frequently for about 2 minutes. The mixture will resemble thick caramel. Remove from heat and carefully pour over the dry mixture. Stir and fold until well-incorporated.
  3. Pour this mixture into the prepared baking pan. Using a rubber spatula, press down firmly, smoothing the treats into an even, tightly packed layer. Chill in the freezer for 25-30 minutes.
  4. Make the chocolate topping: About 5 minutes before the treats are done freezing, prepare the chocolate topping. In a medium, microwave-safe bowl, add the Chocolate Layer ingredients: 1/3 cup chocolate chips and 3 tablespoons peanut butter. Heat in 20-second increments until just slightly softened and melted. Stir until smooth and well-incorporated.
  5. Remove treats from freezer. Grab the lining and lift treats out of the baking pan. Set onto an flat surface. Using a rubber spatula, pour the chocolate mixture over the treats and spread into an even layer. Place back into the freezer for 10-15 minutes, until the chocolate tops are hardened.
  6. Remove treats from freezer. Cut into 16 squares. Enjoy! Storing notes below.
