chocolate rice crispy treats
These have always been one of my favourite chocolate treats. I know I have an endless amount of chocolate recipes, but they are my favourite sweet recipes to make. I always used to make crispy treats when I was younger, they’re such an easy, quick and tasty dessert to make – as well as being delicious. There’s something amazing about the combination of smooth chocolate with a crunchy, crisp texture like puffed rice. I also used to enjoy making these with corn flakes too, anything that gives that nice snap! You could also try these with puffed quinoa, millet, buckwheat or oats – so you can really get creative if you like! These are also the perfect easter treat – you can press them into egg moulds or nest shapes. However you make them, I hope you enjoy this recipe!
chocolate rice crispy treats
makes 5-10, depending on the desired size
1/3 cup (40g) cocoa powder
1/3 cup (55g) raw coconut oil – I used Coconut Merchant
3 tbsp maple syrup
1 cup + 1/3 cup (40g) puffed brown rice
pinch salt, to taste
1. Firstly, place your oil into a pan on a low-medium heat to melt. Once the oil has melted, remove from the heat and stir in the cocoa powder and a pinch of salt until smooth. Then, stir in the maple syrup and puffed rice.
2. When all of the ingredients are well mixed, take a spoonful and scoop into individual muffin or cupcake cases, inside of a baking tray. I used large muffin cases, which made 5, but if you use cupcake cases you will be able to make more! Alternatively, you could try pressing the whole mixture into a small cake tin, pressing it down in the middle, and up around the edges to make a nest (perfect for easter).
3. When this is done, move the treats into the fridge to set for around 2-3 hours, then serve.

Oh wow, these look very pretty. I feel like they would be a good present for Christmas, as some coal. They do look very delicious though! Will have to give it a try =)
Hi Mariyah, thank you! Yes that would be a great idea!! I hope you like them 🙂
Bookmarked! Thanks for this yummy recipe. I can’t wait to try it out! I might even replace the puffed rice cereal with Nature’s Path vegan “cocoa puffs”!
Hi Madeline! Thank you! Oooh yeah that sounds delicious! It will be perfect for an extra cocoa hit! I hope you enjoy them 🙂
Thanks for the lovely recipe, but I want to make it out of couveture then what will be the recipe?
Hi Rukhshana, if you’re using couveture, it will make quite a difference. I use cocoa powder in this recipe, which is dry, however you would need to melt the couveture to use it in this recipe – therefore I’m not sure exactly how you would tweak it, sorry! I would suggest melting the couveture and using less coconut oil, as the couveture will already have more fats in it than cocoa powder. The best thing I can suggest is to experiment! I hope this helps 🙂
