1 1/2 cups
crisp rice cereal
semisweet chocolate chips
Neither the recipe itself nor the reviewers comments indicate what's supposed to happen to the chocolate chips. Since the name of the recipe says "Chocolate Chip" I thought the chips would remain intact. The first time I made this, the chips all melted. The second time I decided to try something different and did not add the chips with the cereal. I took about half of the cereal mixture, patted it into the pan and allowed it to cool for a while. Then I sprinkled the chocolate chips (actually, more like a cup and a half) over the cereal mixture and topped it with the remaining cereal mixture. The chips melted a bit, but the chocolate remained in a layer in the middle of the bars. Either way, these are delicious, and easy to make for a quick treat. I took them for a snack after a meeting last night and everyone commented on how good they were. At one point someone asked if I'd noticed that everyone was eating them and ignoring the other snacks. A winner.
I've never given a recipe a 3 before, but I'm just not sure what the big deal is about these bars. I followed the recipe exactly and was very disappointed. They were very dry, the bars fell apart when I cut them, and the flavor was not good at all. They were worse the next day, as the rice crispies got stale and crumbly. I'm glad so many people have had success with these bars, but I won't make them again. :-(
I spent most of Sunday night doing my yearly Christmas baking -- always at the last minute -- and had a *huge* box of Rice Krispies I bought awhile back, but no marshmellows to do the traditional rice krispies treats.
I stumbled across this recipe in my determination to find *something* to do with this box of Rice Krispies... and WOW!!! This is even way easier than the traditional rice krispies treats, and just as yummy!
Too bad I only have one 9x11 pan though. I wanted to make more!
What an excellent recipe!! I was actually looking to get rid of some small marshmellows I had, so I added 4 cups marshmellows to the recipe..a bit stickier..but it was so good!! Thank you for this recipe!!
These are so easy and no sticky pot to scrub. Kids love them! I make extra and cut them up and keep them in the fridge. Easy recipe for kids to make too. They have become a Girl Scout most asked for recipe in our troop.
Playgroup LOVED these! I lined my cake pan with wax paper for easy 'lifting' out of the pan. I also stored them covered overnight, maybe that's why mine were still soft the next day? I followed the recipe exactly, using both chunky and creamy peanut butter. I followed another suggestion of spinkling the chocolate chips between two layers of the rice cereal mixture to keep the chocolate from melting. These were a HUGE HIT! Thanks!
I have made this recipe twice now..everyone loves it. I made it out of special K cereal and I melted extra choc chips with a bit of milk and sugar and spread it over the bars.
yummy!!!! my daughters and I just made them----so easy!!
