Rice crispy treats are usually chewy but these are crispy and irresistible. Mixing silky melted chocolate with coconut oil sets up the chocolate and binds the puffed rice cereal together without the need for marshmallows (no added sugar here!) resulting in very crispy Crispy Treats. Because this rice crispy treats recipe only uses four simple ingredients, reach for a high-quality chocolate bar for the best flavor. Cut the rice crispy treats into squares or bars and keep in the fridge until ready to serve.
