  • Line a 9-inch pan or similar with parchment paper and set aside.
  • Add the vegan butter to a saucepan and melt over medium heat.
  • Stir the 400g of vegan marshmallows into the melted butter using a spatula. Continue to heat and stir over low-medium heat until they are completely melted. Vegan marshmallows generally take a little longer to melt than regular marshmallows. So make sure you keep the heat on medium-low as if the mixture gets too hot it will become tacky and more difficult to work with.
  • Once melted down, add in the vanilla extract and whisk the mixture until smooth and remove from the heat. Stir in the mini marshmallows and transfer the marshmallow mixture to a large mixing bowl. (If your saucepan is large you can skip the mixing bowl)
  • Add the puffed rice cereal to the bowl and use a spatula to gently fold them into the melted marshmallows. Work as quickly as possible and make sure all the cereal is coated.
  • Spoon the mixture into the pan and use a spatula or spoon to press it down into the base and edges.
  • Allow it to cool to room temperature for 15-20 minutes and slice into 12 portions. Top with extra marshmallows and vegan sprinkles if desired.


  • These rice crispy treats will keep in an airtight container at room temperature for 2-3 days.


  • Most supermarkets or health food stores will have some version of vegan puffed rice or crispy rice cereal. Kellogs rice Krispies are not vegan-friendly.
  • Work quickly to mix the marshmallows with the cereal as the mixture will begin to set as it cools.
  • Take your homemade vegan rice Krispie treats to the next level by drizzling over some vegan white chocolate or milk chocolate.
