Skinnygirl Snack Swap + Recipe + Giveaway #SGSnackSwap


We all love to snack. My weakness is chocolate. Perhaps yours is something salty or something buttery. The problem is that not all snacks are created equal. It’s about finding healthier alternatives to satisfy those cravings and help you make smarter choices. But how do I know what to choose? No problem. Skinnygirl Snack Swap has the answer.


The Skinnygirl Snack Swap is an easy way to swap your favorite indulgences for a healthier treat. There are even recipes included! Like I said, I love chocolate. Chocolate a coconut is a killer combo in my book. So after using Skinnygirl Snack Swap, I found that Chocolate Dipped Rice Squares Topped with Coconut would be a great swap option for me. I printed out the recipe and gave it a whirl!


Chocolate Dipped Rice Squares Topped with Coconut

Ingredients
  • 4 cups brown rice crisp cereal
  • ½ cup brown rice syrup
  • 3 Tbsp vegan butter, like Earth Balance
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
Topping
  • 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 tsp coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened shredded coconut for sprinkling
  1. In a medium-sized saucepan, melt the vegan butter over medium heat. Add in the brown rice syrup and stir until combined.
  2. Heat vegan butter and brown rice syrup just until it comes to a rolling boil.
  3. Immediately remove from heat and stir in 1 teaspoon vanilla.
  4. Add in the brown rice crisp cereal, and stir together until all the cereal is well-coated.
  5. Press the mixture into a greased 8×8 pan, ideally using a sheet of wax paper or plastic wrap as mixture will be sticky.
  6. Place in freezer for at least 10 minutes to firm up.
  7. Meanwhile, prepare your topping. Melt the chocolate chips and coconut oil in the microwave for 30-60 seconds. Be careful not to burn.
  8. Remove the pan from the freezer when firm to touch and drizzle on melted chocolate. Sprinkle with coconut if desired.
  9. Place in the freezer for 45-60 minutes until firm. 
  10. Cut into squares and store in the freezer or fridge.

These rice crispy treats are a little different from the marshmallow-loaded squares you remember from childhood. Sweetened only with brown rice syrup, these snacks provide great crunch along with a decadent chocolate and coconut layer. At only 115 calories per square, reaching for another is practically guilt-free. Keep them refrigerated, or else they tend to want to fall apart. They are so delicious!

The Chocolate Dipped Rice Squares Topped with Coconut are better than the original marshmallow version. No, I am serious. They are so good! My husband was really shocked. He could not believe that these were a healthier snack than the original! They were quite simple to make too. Your spouse, kids, anyone will love them!
