Description

Homemade vegan Halloween treats are the best! These adorable vegan rice krispies treats decorated to look like sweet little mice will be a definite hit with your friends and family. 


Ingredients

Scale
  • 4 tablespoons of vegan butter (I use Earth Balance)
  • 1 (10 oz) bag of vegan marshmallows (I use the brand Dandies)
  • 5 cups of Rice Krispies style cereal (or any puffed rice cereal)
  • ½ cup of vegan chocolate chips (for decorating)

Instructions

  1. In a large sauce pan over low heat, add vegan butter and marshmallows.
  2. Stir regularly for about 7–8 minutes, or until largely melted.
  3. Add cereal to the sauce pan and stir until well combined.
  4. Press mixture into a 9×9 pan and set aside to cool before cutting into mice-sides rectangles.
  5. On a piece of paper, sketch mice parts (ears, tails and whiskers), place it on a cutting board, and cover with wax paper.
  6. Heat chocolate chips (using microwave of double boiler) until melted.
  7. Pour melted chocolate into a plastic bag, cut a tiny hole in the tip, and pipe the chocolate onto the wax paper to form your mice ears. Set in the freezer for 20 minutes until chocolate hardens.
  8. While freezing, pipe the chocolate onto the rice krispies to form the mice eyes, nose, and whiskers. Then pipe chocolate onto the “head” to attach the frozen ears.
  9. Allow to cool before enjoying or serving at a Halloween party!

Notes

  • If you’d prefer, you can melt the butter and marshmallows in a microwave instead of on the stove. To do so, in a glass bowl microwave for 30 second intervals, stirring between each, until marshmallows are fully melted. Then mix in cereal and stir until combined.
