Chocolatey Puppy Chow Krispies {recipe} #easytomake

This is a sponsored post from Rice Krispies.  All opinions are my own.  Of course.

Rice Krispies are our thing.  We love them in cereal, we love them popping on our tongues, and we REALLY love them made  into sweet treats.  Usually I just make the classic Rice Krispie treats with Rice Krispies, marshmallows and butter, but after being inspired by Rice Krispies’ recipe and decorating ideas Pinterest Page, I ventured out and made a recipe that my kids gave TWO THUMBS UP.

Chocolatey Puppy Chow Krispies {recipe} #easytomake

Chocolatey Puppy Chow Krispies are every bit as easy to make as regular Rice Krispie Treats, and since you don’t need the stove to make them, the kids can totally manage this recipe on their own!  Plus, these treats made with Rice Krispies, chocolate chips, peanut butter chips, marshmallows, M&M’s and powdered sugar pack a chocolatey flavor punch that I guarantee the whole family won’t be able to say no to!  {{smiling}}

Chocolatey Puppy Chow Ingredients

One of the best things about this recipe is that it only uses a few ingredients, and if you don’t have M&M’s, no one will ever know.  Also, you can substitute real peanut butter for the peanut butter chips like I used.  In fact, the original recipe uses real peanut butter.  I modified my recipe to use peanut butter chips because I wanted a more kid easy recipe.  I don’t know what it is with my boys, but they make a huge mess with peanut butter.  Also, you can use more or less powdered sugar based on preference.  I also used more marshmallows than her recipe.  The main thing is that you make sure that the Rice Krispies are completely covered with the melted chocolate mixture.

This Chocolatey Puppy Chow Krispies recipe is so easy to make!  Be sure to microwave your semi sweet chocolate chips in 15 second increments!  It took us about 2 minutes to melt our chips.

Tip:  Spray your 8X8 baking dish with cooking spray before you spread the Chocolatey Puppy Chow Krispies in it.  It’ll  make removal of the treats so much easier!

The best part of the recipe for my twins was putting the M&M’s on the top of the treat and then sprinkling huge amounts of powdered sugar to “seal” off the dessert.
