Homemade Ding Dongs

3 words for you.  Homemade Ding Dongs. The other day in my Facebook group, a member posted a pic of some store bought Ding Dongs from Whole Foods.  She asked if I could make a homemade version and I gladly accepted the challenge!  I love the challenge of making copycat recipes. Just try my Gluten Free Samoas or my Grain Free Twix Bars for yourself.  Unlike the store bought one, my version is free of refined sugar, gluten, eggs and dairy!

Chocolate Rice Crispy Squares

Rice crispy treats are one of those iconic recipes from childhood.  Well, I just gave them a major upgrade with these easy Chocolate Rice Crispy Squares.  I love this recipe because it only contains simple ingredients and it can literally be made in just a few minutes.  If you love chocolate, you may also want to try my fudgy flourless brownies and my chocolate coffee cheesecake.

These delicious chocolate bars are vegan and gluten free. They can easily be made nut free by using sunflower butter in place of the cashew butter.  I used brown rice cereal in this recipe.  Only ingredient is brown puffed rice. You should be able to find it at any health food store.  I have also seen it at Target on occasion.
