Peanut Butter Rice Crispy Treats

January 5, 2010

This was the first time I made these, and I think they turned out pretty good.  They could have been a little bit more light and fluffy, but they still tasted good.  The chocolate on top really made a difference.  Overall, it’s super easy to make, and takes a surprisingly short time to make.  I think this recipe originally came from the blog, Hell Yeah, It’s Vegan.  It uses peanut butter instead of marshmallow.  Here it is:

1 c. light corn syrup

1 c. sugar

1 c. peanut butter (I used crunchy, but either would be good)

6 c. puffed rice cereal (can be found in the healthy section of the grocery store.  I forget which kind I used…  it was something made for kids, but it worked really well)

a good-sized handful of vegan dark chocolate chips (for drizzling on top)

Heat the corn syrup, sugar, and peanut butter in a pan on the stove.

Heat slowly on medium heat until the sugar dissolves—and stir a lot. Remove from heat and stir Rice Krispies in right away.  Spread into a greased pan, and heat up the chocolate chips in the microwave.  Drizzle the chocolate on top, and chill until firm.  That’s it!
