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.

  1. 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 =)

  2. 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”!

    1. 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 🙂
