Classic Rice Crispy Treats

Yields 14 squares.

Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons vegan butter
  • 1 10 oz bag vegan marshmallows—Dandies or Trader Joes brands
  • 6 cups brown rice crisps—Barbara’s is one of many brands that will work well

Directions

  1. Line a 9″ x 9″ baking dish with parchment paper.
  2. Melt the butter in a large pot over medium heat.
  3. Add the marshmallows to melt along with the butter. Stir often to prevent burning. This will take about 6 minutes to melt completely.
  4. Remove from heat.
  5. Stir in the rice crisps and make sure they are all coated in marshmallow.
  6. Transfer to the baking dish and press firmly with a palm-sized piece of parchment paper.
  7. Allow to cool for about 1 hour before enjoying.
