What ingredients do you need to make Vegan Rice Krispie Treats?
The amazing part about these Vegan Rice Krispie Treats is that you need just 4 ingredients. How much easier does it get than that! The ingredients that you’ll need for this dairy free treat are:
- crispy rice cereal
- dairy free butter
- vegan marshmallows
- optional: vegan chocolate candies (similar to M&Ms, we use these)
How do you make Vegan Rice Krispie Treats?
The first step is to place a large pot on the stove over medium heat. Add in the butter and melt it. Once your butter is melted, add in marshmallows and stir until the marshmallows are melted. Remove from heat.
Add in the crispy rice cereal and stir until very well combined. Then, pour out on a 8×12 baking sheet that have been coasted with oil or spray (we like to rub coconut oil). Using a spatula or your hands, press down on the mixture until even. Push down vegan chocolate candies if using. Lastly, wait until cooled, about 15 minutes, and then cut and serve.
Can you make these Top 8 Allergen Friendly Rice Krispie Treats?
These vegan rice crispy treats are already Top 8 Allergen friendly using the ingredients that we outlined below. If you’d like more specifics, we use crispy rice cereal from our local Aldi grocer and then combine that with Earth’s Balance soy free dairy free butter and Dandie’s vegan marshmallows. Finally, we top with UnReal chocolate gems in dark chocolate. These particular chocolate gems are vegan; however, not all their chocolate gems are, so double check the ones you plan to buy.
Where can I buy vegan marshmallows?
Thankfully, vegan marshmallows are too terribly hard to find. We have seen them at Whole Foods, Wegman’s, Moms Organic, and our local health food store. I would recommend you checking there if it’s a spot that you regularly visit. However, you can also easily get vegan marshmallows on Amazon. They actually are usually cheaper on Amazon than some of the stores I’ve seen from $4-6.
