Cocoa Hazelnut Rice Crispy Treats

Piece of cocoa rice crispy bar

What started out as cocoa rice crispy cereal turned into cocoa hazelnut rice crispy treats. I love both, but then again I love almost anything involving chocolate.

Toasted Hazelnuts

This is another variation on rice crispy treats, and there’s no marshmallows here. The hazelnuts are optional, but they go great with the cocoa flavor. I know you might be thinking that’s not the rice crispy treats you know and love, but consider that they’re sweet, sugarless, with a great cocoa taste, and a light crunch.

Cutting up cocoa rice crispy treats

Pressed together in a baking dish of some kind, they become treats, or if you were hoping for a cocoa crispy cereal, that’s another route to take.

To have a bowl of cocoa rice crispy cereal, you could just use this recipe and spread the rice mixture out on a cookie sheet to cool. Or, follow the directions after the first recipe for cocoa rice crispy cereal for a less sticky version of this cereal. The treat recipe is sweeter than the cereal recipe, so I prefer the cereal recipe when making a cereal to crunch on.

    Hello, just wondering, for making the crispy treats you first say to preheat the oven but then don’t actually put the treats in there…is this a mistake or was preheating the oven for the hazlenuts?
    Thank you, I am really enjoying your recipes 🙂

    Hi Erica, maybe I missed something, but I thought one couldn’t have rice (a grain) or cocoa powder while on SCD. Am I correct?
