Tips For Making This Vegan Chocolate Rice Cakes Recipe

Don’t Burn the Chocolate

Be careful not to burn the chocolate when melting, or it can taste bitter. After the first minute in the microwave, stir it well, and heat it for only 30 seconds at a time until the chocolate is smooth and completely melted. You can also use the bain-marie method!

Get Fancy with the Coating

You can cover the rice cakes with dark chocolate and drizzle them with melted butterscotch chips. Love strawberries and cream? Try white chocolate covered rice cakes with freeze-dried strawberries.

Jazz Them Up

Experiment with different toppings. Top the rice cakes with almond butter before coating them with chocolate, add a layer of raspberry jam, or decorate the chocolate rice cakes with a drizzle of caramel sauce. Shredded coconut and cacao nibs will also be great on these rice cake desserts.

Dip Then Spread

Instead of spreading the melted chocolate on top of the rice cakes, you can dip the rice cakes in chocolate and just spread the chocolate evenly with a butter knife. This method is perfect when layering different toppings, like different kinds of nut butter and jam.
