This is a yummy riff on the traditional rice crispy treat. It's made with brown rice crispies, shredded coconut, and coconut butter. This recipe makes a lot of extra coconut butter, so enjoy it smeared on toast (or on shortbread cookies) in the morning. —Sweets
Using a large nonstick pot, over medium-high heat, toast all four cups of the shredded coconut. While toasting, make sure to stir frequently so coconut doesn't burn. The coconut is done when it changes to golden brown and smells fragrant.
Set coconut aside to cool.
Once coconut has cooled, reserve 3/4 of a cup for the treats. Place the remainder in the bowl of a food processor. Process until smooth. It should take about 5-8 minutes of solid processing to develop a silky consistency. Set coconut butter aside.
