Vegan peanut butter cups combine with crispy brown rice to give you chocolate peanut butter rice crispy treats.

They live in your freezer because the coconut oil that holds these together will melt at room temperature, but that’s cool because I love a frosty chocolate treat.

INGREDIENTS FOR CHOCOLATE RICE CRISPY TREATS

I always have the ingredients on hand to make these no bake goodies. The bonus is during the summer, my coconut oil is already liquid for me! 

  • Natural peanut butter
  • Coconut oil
  • Maple syrup
  • Cocoa powder
  • Brown rice crispies
  • Vanilla
  • Sea salt

HOW TO MAKE NO BAKE CHOCOLATE CRUNCH CUPS

This is the easiest dessert you will ever make! Combine the peanut butter with coconut oil and maple syrup in a small saucepan over medium-low heat.

After the peanut butter, oil and sweetener have all melted nicely together, stir in the vanilla and pinch of salt, followed by the cocoa powder. After that, the crunch factor gets added in the form of brown rice crispies.

I use Nature’s Path brand. Much healthier than Kellogg’s or the like.

Scoop the mixture into a lined muffin tin and pop it into the freezer to set.

As I mentioned earlier, keep these chocolate peanut butter rice krispie treats in the freezer so they don’t melt on you!

I hope you enjoy these healthier, no-bake treats.

They are usually on repeat in our kitchen all summer long. 🙂

  4. These look awesome, I love a good crunch with chocolate. 🙂 Lol, I hear you on remaking recipes. I’ll go to make an old favorite and start feeling guilty that I haven’t tested out a new one yet. I agree with you that I wouldn’t want it any different though!

    1. Thanks Wendy! I’m so happy to hear you still love those cups. Adding the puffed rice takes them over the edge. Super delicious. 🙂 Have a great week!
