Vegan Cocoa Crispy Treats

Hey everyone!! During the July 4th weekend, Stevie and I are going to a Vegan Potluck. We are really excited to meet local vegans too because we do not know any other vegans in real life. ha ha Anyway, one of things Stevie wanted to make are these Cocoa Crispy Treats. Then I had the brilliant idea to add extra chocolate. Stevie didn't care for the extra chocolate but I loved and preferred it. So, when making your own, you can decide.

I've never really been into marshmallowy treats or marshmallows even but I must say these are really quite tasty. I will also say I do like marshmallows in my hot chocolate during the cold winter months but that is another story because it is flaming hot here today. 

I even had some non vegan co-workers try these and they enjoyed them. 

If you have never made these kinds of treats before, you will definitely need to keep a couple things in mind when making them. The first is have your 9x9 pan ready to go when the cereal marshmallow mix is all melted and ready to pour. If your pan is not ready, it will be a little difficult to mash the mix into the pan as it will begin to cool and set up. The second thing is have your cereal already measured and ready to pour into the hot melty marshmallows. 

The Cocoa Comet Crispies are the best in our experience. There are some other's out there that are ok but these really are the best.

Now, let's get to what you will need. Here we go.
5 cups of vegan cocoa crispy cereal 
4-5 tablespoons of vegan butter
1 - 10 ounce package of vegan mini marshmallows
1/2 cup chocolate chips for added drizzle
9x9 parchment or foil lined pan

In a large pan, melt the butter over a medium high heat. Once the butter is all melted, add the marshmallows and stir until all melted. Do not walk away because they can burn really fast. 

Quickly add the cereal and stir to incorporate into the melty marshmallow. Carefully pour into your prepared pan and press firmly to compact them. Let them sit for about an hour to cool and set up. 

Cut them however you like. I was able to get 24 pieces by cutting them in half, then into fourths and then into eighth's. Then I cut each eighth into thirds.

Melt the chocolate chips in a microwave safe glass bowl for 15 second intervals stirring between each interval until nice and melted. Drizzle over little treat or dip one end into the chocolate and let set up. Enjoy.
