What would Christmas be like without Christmas candy... or cookies? Sad, it would be sad.
One candy recipe my family has made for years is "white candy"... it has peanut butter, peanuts, marshmallows, and rice krispies coated in almond bark. It is quite good. I was hoping to veganize that recipe, but life happened and I wasn't able to locate dairy free white chocolate. So... instead, I took what I liked from that recipe and subbed in dairy free chocolate chips for the almond bark. I think I have a winner!
Chocolate Peanut Butter Crispies
16 oz dairy free baking chips (I used Chocolate Dream semi-sweet chips)
1/2 cup smooth peanut butter
2 cups puffed brown rice cereal
2 cups salted cocktail peanuts
Melt the chips in the microwave.
Add peanut butter and stir until smooth and combined with the chocolate.
Add cereal and peanuts.
Drop by teaspoonfuls onto waxed paper.
Let sit overnight to harden.
