Carob Peanut Butter Rice Krispy Treats
|Prep time||45 minutes|
|Misc||Child Friendly, Freezable, Pre-preparable, Serve Cold|
- 1/2 cup natural smooth peanut butter
- 1 cup vegan sugar-sweetened carob chips
- 2 tablespoons confectioner's sugar ((optional))
- 3 cups rice krispies
- 1 pinch salt
|In a microwave-safe bowl, combine peanut butter and carob chips. (Making sure the carob chips are coated in peanut butter helps keep them from scorching in the microwave.) Microwave on high for 1 minute, stir, then microwave again for 30 seconds. Sitr. Carob chips should be pretty much completely melted. If you still see alot of chunks, microwave again for another 10-20 seconds.|
|Combine confectioner's sugar and a pinch of salt with your carob/PB mixture.|
|Add Rice krispies and stir until rice krispies are completely coated.|
|Press mixture into a square 9 X 9 baking dish (no need to oil the pan, as your PB and carob chips contain enough oil on their own), and place in the refrigerator for 30-60 minutes, until treats are slightly chilled, and solid.|
|Cut into squares and serve slightly chiled or at room temperature.|
This recipe is designed for vegan sugar-sweetened carob chips. However, it would definitely work with vegan semi-sweet chocolate chips as well (you just might have to adjust the sweetener a little bit).
