Chocolate-Peanut Butter Crispies

I love this recipe because there's very little cooking and kids can help make them. There are some major decisions to make before starting[ though-regular rice cereal or chocolate rice cereal, plus the really big decision - creamy or crunchy peanut butter. Marriages have nearly broken up over this one so choose wisely and consult the whole family before proceeding. You can substitute other cereals too, if you have a cupboard full of miscellaneous. ends of cereal boxes like I tend to have.]

    Very ymuuy simple sweet snack. I melted semi-sweet morsels and dipped a few in half way. For sure will make again!
    Great for a crunchy chocolate fix. I didn't have cocoa crispies so I mixed in about 3/4 cup chocolate chips when I added the peanut butter. They were delicious. My kids loved helping to make these as well.
    These were good, but mine where way too hard. I'm guessing that I cooked the sugar/corn syrup too long. It wasn't much over a minute -- but maybe that was too much. It is an easy recipe and tasted pretty good.
    They were very good, not to sweet or to rich.
    nothing quicker or easier. the whole family loved them. i really liked that you could make them small to get in the snack without a boatload of calories. perfect to put in lunch bags!
    I used non-chocolate crisped rice cereal. I just pressed it into an 8X8" pan and cut into squares after it set. My kids like these better than the traditional ones made with melted marshmallow.
    These were very easy to make and they went quickly. I brought them to a barbeque where the children and adults ate them up.
