Chocolate Peanut Butter Rice Krispy Treats (vegan)

I seem to be posting an awful lot of treat recipes lately. I can’t help it, I LOVE treats! Especially treats that involve chocolate, peanut butter and that you can throw together in a few minutes!
Adapted from http://www.ohsheglows.com

Ingredients:
1/2 cup smooth peanut butter
1/2 cup agave nectar
1/4 cup vanilla almond milk or 1/4 cup plain almond milk with 2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup cocoa powder
3 cups crisp rice cereal
1/2 cup vegan chocolate chips (or non-vegan, your choice)

Peanut Butter Fudge topping ingredients:
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1/4 cup chocolate chips

Directions:
Line an 8×8 baking pan with parchment paper.
In a medium sized sauce pan stir together the peanut butter, agave nectar, almond milk and vanilla. Once sauce is smooth, add in the cocoa powder and stir to combine. Remove from heat and add in the crisp rice cereal and combine. Then gently fold in the chocolate chips.
Press mixture into 8×8 pan and place in the freezer to cool off.

When you are ready to add the PB fudge topping, just place the peanut butter and chocolate chips in a sauce pan and heat over medium-low heat until you have a smooth sauce. Pour the sauce over the treats and spread it out evenly.
Return the treats to the fridge or freezer to firm up. Store in the fridge or freezer.
