Week 32-Cravings take over the Cupcake challenge

November 17th 
Sorry, but sometimes this happens. Cravings. I have been wanting a rice crispy square FOREVER! So two weeks ago, when I thought I needed to squeeze in the cupcakes, I made these. Well I made them again today they are that good.
Mudpie bars, is the official name. Now they are Mudpie cupcakes:)
I originally received this recipe from a friend of my brother's while he was living on Vancouver Island. I went to visit for a week. Every day we would go and eat at this amazing vegan restaurant. (We were also both hard core veggies at the time, sigh, how times have changed) They sold these 'Mudpie Bars'. I loved them. His friend worked there and was able to get me the recipe. SCORE!
Really they are so simple and I'm going to share the full recipe with you. They are the perfect combination of PB and chocolate, rolled into a rice crispy form. Heaven. Of course I formed them into cupcake pans, and voila. Cupcakes this week.
See below picture for full recipe details.
In a heavy sauce pan, bring 1 cup of brown rice syrup and 1tsp of vanilla to an almost boil. (do not boil and stir often)
Immediately add 1/2 cup PB (we used the all natural)
Stir off the heat until melted.
Pour over 4 cups of brown or regular rice crispies. Mix until well combined.
Press into well greased pan/muffin pan. Leaving a quarter/or less of the mixture.
Melt in microwave or double boiler, 1 cup of PB and 2 cups of chocolate chips/carob chips.
Pour over pressed crispy in pan.
Sprinkle remaining rice mixture over chocolate mixture.
Refrigerate until hard and enjoy the heaven!! We did.
