Happy Friday! Just in time for the warm weather to roll in, here’s a no-bake cookie-like treat the kids can help make.
2 Cups creamy peanut butter
3 Cups crisped rice cereal
3 Cups powdered sugar
¼ Cup melted butter
2-3 12 oz. pkgs chocolate chips (or a variety of flavors if you want to mix it up)
Parchment paper covered cookie sheets
Mix together the peanut butter, cereal, powdered sugar and melted butter.
Form the mixture into balls – size of your choice, but I make mine the size of small meatballs.
Melt chocolate chips one package at a time in the microwave.
Dip the crispy balls in the melted chocolate to coat.
Place the coated crispies on parchment paper covered cookie sheets to harden in the refrigerator.
Baking chips come in a variety of flavors such as milk chocolate, semi-sweet chocolate, white chocolate, butterscotch, and mint chocolate so it’s easy to have a variety that everyone will love. Try mixing up what type of nut butter you use – try almond or cashew butter instead of peanut butter to see what happens.
Enjoy your weekend!
