My family and I are huge fans of rice crispy treats. These vegan Rice Crispy Treat Hearts use Dandies marshmallows (the only vegan marshmallow to eat in my book!) and Earth Balance butter. I used a heart shape cookie cutter (perfect for Valentine’s Day), dipped them in melted dairy-free chocolate chips, and decorated them with sprinkles. These Rice Crispy Treat Hearts are a fun recipe to make with the kids!
Vegan Rice Crispy Treat Hearts
- 1 bag Dandies
- 3 tablespoons Earth Balance
- 6 cups Brown Rice cereal
- 1/2 cup vegan chocolate chips or chunks
- Assorted sprinkles
Melt the butter in a pan and add the marshmallows. Keep stirring until melted, slow at first (about 10 minutes).
Stir in the cereal 1 cup at a time until combined.
Press into a greased 13×9 inch pan.
Use parchment paper to press it down and spread it out.
While it is still warm, use a heart-shaped cookie cutter to cut out hearts. Set on a parchment paper to harden.
Rice Crispy Treat on Parchment
While the treats are cooling, melt the chocolate chips in a saucepan or microwave. While it is still warm, dip one side of the treat into the chocolate and set back on the parchment paper.
