Most rice crispy squares or rice crispy treats recipes call for marshmallows, which contain gelatin, so are not strictly vegetarian and are certainly not vegan. This rice crispy squares recipe uses corn syrup and peanut butter instead, making it both vegetarian, vegan, and super yummy! Enjoy your vegetarian and vegan rice cripsies!
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 cup corn syrup
- 1 cup peanut butter
- 6 cups rice crispy cereal
- 2 cups chocolate chips
Cook the sugar and corn syrup in a medium saucepan over medium heat until bubbly. Remove from the heat and add the peanut butter and cereal and mix well.
Spread the mixture in a 9x13 inch pan.
Melt the chocolate chips and pour over the cereal mixture. Chill until firm and cut into squares.
