Keto Rice Crispy Cereal

If you don’t want to use the HighKey Protein Cereal, you can try using crushed up plain pork rinds instead. As strange as it may sound, they also tastes similar to real rice crispy treats once the white chocolate and butter are added. The only problem is it might get soggy on the bottom layer depending on how well you mix up the rice crispy mixture.

Sugar-free White Chocolate

The keto white chocolate used in this recipe is by ChocZero. Their chocolates are sugar-free and sugar alcohol free.

Keto Rice Crispy Treats Without Marshmallows

To make keto rice crispy treats, it’s not necessary to make sugar-free marshmallows. Not only is making keto marshmallows messy but it’s also time consuming. This recipe for low carb rice crispy treats doesn’t require marshmallows and uses the combination of white chocolate and sugar-free vanilla syrup to achieve a marshmallow-like flavor.

If you want addtional marshmallow flavor, you can add 10-15 drops marshmallow flavoring.

How to Melt Chocolate

The easiest way to melt chocolate is to melt it in the microwave. Add a small amount of chocolate chips to a microwave safe glass bowl. Melt at 20-30 second intervals, stirring in between, until the chocolate is melted.

If you don’t own a microwave, you can melt chocolate using the double boiler method. Place a glass or metal bowl over a saucepan filled with a small amount of boiling water. Stir the chocolate while the steam from the water underneath melts the chocolate.

Keto Rice Crispy Treat Variations

Now that you know the basic easy keto rice crispy treat recipe, there are so many variations you can make. HighKey also makes a chocolate and cinnamon protein rice cereal, so you can easily make chocolate keto rice crispy treats or cinnamon flavored ones.
