Chocolate Marshmallow Addiction

Posted by on January 28, 2010 | 25 Comments

Even after making two big batches of Chocolate Peppermint Oreo Treats, I had gobs of marshmallow creme leftover, both Fluff and Ricemellow. Feeling uninspired, I simply made some s’mores for an after-dinner treat. Spread some marshmallow creme on a graham cracker, melt some dark chocolate, spread that on the other graham cracker, mush the two together and freeze for 10 minutes. Yes, they are sooo good chilled, just so you know. Anyway, this became our nightly dessert ritual for about a week, until sadly, I ran out of graham crackers. Not wanting to continue this sugar fest by investing in another box of grahams, I decided to go back to basics.

I still had some rather large dark chocolate bars on hand (when your local store is blowing out 1 lb bars of Callebaut chocolate for $.50 a piece, you stock up!), so I stayed with the choco-mallow theme and made some simple fudgie crispy treats. I known, nothing fancy, but when you have a chocolate craving, and want something the size of a chocolate bar (not simply a little square) without causing too much damage to your waistline, these will do the trick. Just a warning though, they may be ugly, but they are rather addictive!

Vegan Fudgy Crispy Treats


Easy Fudge Crispies

This recipe is optionally Vegan, Dairy-Free, Egg-free, Gluten-Free, Soy-Free, and Nut-Free, depending on the ingredients you choose. Both the marshmallow creme and vegan ricemellow cream work quite well. The latter produces slightly softer results, which I actually preferred.

  • 2 Ounces Dark or Semi-Sweet Chocolate
  • 1 to 2 Teaspoons Coconut Oil (pretty sure I used 2 teaspoons for best results)
  • 6 Tablespoons Marshmallow Creme, Fluff, or Vegan Ricemellow Creme
  • 1-1/2 Cups Crispy Rice Cereal (I used gluten-free brown rice crispies)

Melt the chocolate in a small to medium bowl – I did this in the microwave. I heated  it for 1 minute and stirred it vigorously. If there are any big chunks left, return it to the microwave for 15 seconds, and stir again.

Stir in the coconut oil and marshmallow creme / fluff until smooth. Add the cereal, and gently stir to combine. Plop equal amounts into 6 muffin cups (I used silicone ones, and didn’t need to grease them). Press the mixture into the cups – I use a little piece of saran wrap over my fingers as I press down to keep them from sticking. If using the ricemellow creme, you may find that the mixture is much stickier. I put them in the fridge for 5 minutes, pulled them out and then pressed them in to combat this issue.

Place the crispy treats in the freezer for 15 minutes. Pop them out and enjoy! Keep in mind, these will get very, tooth-breaking firm if stored in the freezer for more than the 15 minutes. Move them to the fridge for prolonged storage.

Options: Add in some vanilla extract, peppermint extract, chili powder, ginger, chopped dried fruit, nuts, or cinnamon to customize your own Fudge Crispies.

Yields 3 treat-like snacks (2 crispies each)

  1. OH.MI.GOSH!! These look incredible.

  2. Pink Panda says:

    Simple, easy recipes, usually turn out tasting the best. I like this one and they look a lot tastier than you give them credit for.

  3. Christina says:

    Ohh these looks yum!

  4. Jill says:

    These sound sooo addictive! It’s great to see such an easy recipe. It’s too bad vegan marshmallow products are so hard to come by in most parts of the world and require online orders. It sure sounds like they are worth the trouble though 🙂

  5. Marianne says:

    Oh, those are definitely anything BUT ugly. Chocolate is never ugly 😉

  6. “I had gobs of marshmallow creme leftover, both Fluff and Ricemellow”–
    Oh well, there are way worse problems to have in life 🙂

    The next problem clearly was this:
    I still had some rather large dark chocolate bars on hand.

    So, your next problem is that I live too far to come over and help you eat these…well, that’s my problem, isn’t it!!

    GREAT RECIPE, Alisa!

    How much do you charge to ship these to CT???LOL!

    I am making these as they fit right into my eating preferences. The mint one looks fantastic as well.

    I hate to tell you this, but these are not ugly in the slightest. What a delicious dessert! I love the dark chocolate twist.

  11. Those sound lovely. Unfortunately, I haven’t been able to find any marshmallow creme that is actually both soy-free and egg-free. The typical Northeastern version contains eggs (as most others do); the vegan version contains soy protein isolate. I miss marshmallow fluff!

  12. These look like they would be incredibly dangerous to have around. For a period in university, I was addicted to microwaved rice krispie squares. Microwaving two marshmallows until the looked like they would explode and than stirred in the cereal… come to think of it- maybe that’s how I got Crohn’s

  13. Stephanie says:

    I am a big fan of the simple recipe myself. My stomach is now growling after looking at that photos.

  14. Rita says:

    those look amazing

  15. peabody says:

    I could see where these could be addictive.

  16. This is yummy! I think there is a manufacturer that produces this kind of sweets. But I think, homemade is the best.

  17. I think they’re very cute! Nicer looking than if you’d cut them up from a big pan full.

  18. Miranda says:

    My girls would love these!!! Thank you so much for sharing. The pictures are lovely.

  19. Christina says:

    YUM! We are definately going to have to make those as soon as I can find some df chocolate near us. Our mainstay brand of chips suddenly had milkfat disclosed on the label. 🙁

    I wish those darn boxes of crisp brown rice were less expensive!

    Hi Alisa,
    I will make these….they look yummy!
    I made-up a wonderful chocolate fudge recipe that I submitted to Ricemellow company and asked them to put on their lids….they did not do it but it would sell a ton of their product! I cannot do dairy so the fudge is a fabulous treat for me!

    The makeshift s’mores sound pretty incredible too….maybe worth trying with some peanut butter smeared in there too. Yum!!

  22. Jamie Stern says:

    As always Alisa, great recipe! This goes on my Valentine’s weekend list of things to try. Thanks.

  23. sophia says:

    Ooh! Wouldn’t I love to sink my teeth into that!

  24. Libby says:

    So I was virtuously reading your post about the lovely chicken stir fry, having noticed today at the store that the broccoli was on sale. Then I continued to scroll down to this post…all thoughts of broccoli have been banished from my chocoholic brain. You are a bad, bad influence! 😉
