    • (yes, they’re vegan!)
  • 5-6 cups Kellogg’s® Rice Krispies® cereal
    • (Trader Joe’s brand used in photo, but don’t actually use it! It has a hard to notice animal by-product in the ingredients.)

  8. Cut into 1.5/2 x 3-inch squares.
  9. Enjoy! (best if used same day)

  1. I recently made these, too, with the new TJ’s marshmallows. Unfortunately, TJ’s puffed rice cereal isn’t vegan, as it uses cholecalciferol (D-3), which comes from lanolin. I ended up buying Erewhon brand crisped rice cereal, which is vegan.
