Super easy and delicious chocolate rice Krispie treats! Perfect quick treat for when you don’t want to turn on those ovens!
Yesterday we were invited to a friend’s family get together and our assignment was to bring “finger treats” for the kids. My mind went immediately to a rice krispie squares recipe but I wanted to spice it up a bit. I am a chocolate lover, so I thought, why couldn’t we make them with coco pebbles instead? Of course it was a fabulous idea! Everything is better in chocolate form, am I right?! Enter easy and delicious chocolate rice krispies!
How do you make the best chocolate rice krispies?
It’s so easy! Here’s the recipe.
Chocolate Rice Krispie Treats
- 6 cups coco pebbles generic brand works fine!
- 5 cups mini marshmallows
- 1/4 cup butter
- Melt butter in large pot over low heat. Add in marshmallows and stir until mixed together.
- Remove from heat and add your cereal, stirring to coat.
- Spray a cookie sheet with pam and press mixture into pan. Cut into shapes or squares and enjoy!
So easy right?! Now let’s get to a few frequently asked questions:
How long will rice krispie treats last?
Typically rice krispie treats only stay soft and fresh for about two days. I’ve found if you cut up your squares and put them in a gallon zip lock bag, then suck all the air out of the bag they will last a lot longer. I don’t keep mine for more than a week though!
Can rice krispie treats be frozen?
Yes. Cut your rice krispies prior to freezing and store in an airtight container. Use freezer paper between layers to avoid sticking. Let thaw at room temperature.
