Almond Butter Rice Crisp Treats

IMG_8256

Talk about a high demand treat! My husband has been requesting these crisps for weeks & I finally decided to make a batch. Super simple to whip up – no cooking involved & it only took a few minutes to make! Oh yeah & did I mention chunky almond butter is involved!?!

Lets get to this amazingness…

  1. Line an 8×12 baking dish with parchment paper – set aside
  2. In a large pot over medium heat mix 3/4C chunky almond butter, 3/4C brown rice syrup & 1.5T Earth Balance original buttery spread – stir til combined
  3. Remove from heat & add 1.5T vanilla extract
  4. Stir in 5C + 1/4C gluten free rice crisps til all is combined
  5. Pour in prepared baking dish, spread evenly (press firmly with hand or back of spoon) then place in freezer for 5minutes
  6. While in freezer, melt 1C vegan chocolate chips in the microwave
  7. Remove baking dish from freezer, spread chocolate on treats & sprinkle shredded coconut on top

I decided to only coat half of the crisps with the chocolate glaze – but do whatever your lil’ heart desires!

    • Hiya Amanda – So, I put mine back in the freezer for 5-10minutes to firm up. Then I sliced them up & packaged them in parchment paper bags for my hub to take to work. The chocolate stayed firm without refrigeration after that. However, if I was planning on keeping them at home I wouldn’t have stuck in freezer. Hope this helps!
