Most of the time I’m sharing food ideas and fun treats that the entire family would like, but sometimes after a long day at work or a long week for that matter, I like to create a treat that is just for me (and sometimes I’ll share with Wayne if I’m feeling extra nice!).
Who doesn’t love Rice Krispies Treats®? They are easy to have on hand and I can quickly transform them into a dark-chocolatey-peanut-buttery-mess of a treat! These little bites have been sliced in half, slathered with Peanut Butter, dipped in dark chocolate, and then topped with some of my favorite things, like Peanut Butter M&M’s and Sea Salt!
They only take a few minutes to make and make a delicious treat to nibble on while you watch a little TV before bed and sip on your favorite drink.
Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Rice Krispies Treat® Bites
8 Rice Krispies Treat® Bars
16 Tablespoons creamy peanut butter
16 ounces dark melting chocolate
A variety of toppings such as sea salt, Peanut Butter
M&M’s, and JET-PUFFED Miniature Marshmallows (optional)
Fresh Mint Leaves and Confectioners’ sugar for garnish
1. Melt chocolate over medium heat using a double broiler.
2. Remove the Rice Krispies Treats® from their packages and slice each piece in half lengthwise and then again vertically – creating four pieces out of each treat.
3. Spread peanut butter on half of the pieces and then cover with remaining pieces, creating a ‘sandwich’.
4. Dip each piece in the melted chocolate covering completely, and then place onto parchment paper.
5. Top with sea salt, chopped Peanut Butter M&M’s, or diced JET-PUFFED Miniature Marshmallows.
6. Let them dry, then enjoy! If serving to guests, place one piece onto a dessert plate garnished with melted chocolate, confectioner’s sugar, and mint leaves for an extra special touch!
Makes 16 servings.
I found the Rice Krispies Treats in the same aisle where you’d find breakfast bars or fruit snacks at Safeway.
