Hi friends! Meet your new favorite vegan holiday treat- Vegan Peppermint Fudge Rice Krispie Treats!
If you love to keep a box or two of frozen thin mint girl scout cookies in your freezer, these Vegan Peppermint Fudge Rice Krispie Treats are a MUST-TRY. They are crunchy, chewy, refreshingly minty, and oh so chocolatey.
These Vegan Peppermint Fudge Rice Krispie Treats are made with a secret ingredient to make them extra chewy and delicious- vegan sweetened condensed oat milk! The result is a much softer rice krispie treat than those made with just marshmallows and butter.
The peppermint fudge topping also has a secret weapon adding to the decadence and chewiness– evaporated oat milk! Adding a few splashes makes the chocolate set so nicely. It’s not to hard, not too soft, and just perfect to sink your teeth into.

The condensed oat milk and evaporated oat milk are the latest creations by my friends at Nature’s Charm! You can find their products in the bakery aisle of most health food stores, or online. Their condensed coconut milk and evaporated coconut milk work perfectly in this recipe if the oat products are not in stock!
