Sometimes I just need a quick treat after dinner (or in the middle of the day.) Yesterday I was strolling down the cereal aisle at Trader Joe’s and stopped on a box of Rice Crispy’s. This immediately brought me back to rec. soccer, when we were rewarded with snacks after every game. I can’t even remember the last time I had a rice crispy treat, but it was most definitely store bought and individually wrapped in that shiny blue package.
Now that I’m a little older and a little wiser, I realized I could quickly whip up a healthier version to indulge on. This is probably the quickest dessert I’ve made. It’s vegan, takes about 15 minutes from start to finish and you can make them with as few as 3 ingredients!
3 cups of rice crispy cereal
5 oz Dandies Marshmallows
1 heaping scoop of Earth Balance
4 oz non-dairy chocolate chips
1 tsp coconut oil
Sprinkles, as many as your heart desires
To jazz it up and make extra special I topped with my favorites: chocolate and sprinkles
Melt the chocolate chips with coconut oil, stir together until smooth. Drizzle on top of entire rice crispy. Top with your favorite colorful sprinkles.
Set in refrigerator about 15 minutes to harden. Then remove, slice, and share!
