A really fast candy for that chocolate fix that we all want every now and then. I am not sure where this originated from but I have made it for several years. Number of servings estimated as depends on size.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Microwave the chocolate chips and peanut butter on high for 1 minute.
  2. Stir and continue to heat at 30 second intervals until completely melted.
  3. Stir in peanuts and cereal.
  4. Drop onto cookie sheets lined with waxed paper and place in freezer.
  5. Freeze for about 1 hour or until firm.
  6. Remove from pans and place in plastic storage containers. Keep refrigerated until ready to serve as they do melt quickly.
  7. This recipe is forgiving so you can easily change up the flavour of chocolate chips and nuts.

These candies are addicting!! I made 1 doz and glad I did because I could have eaten the whole batch myself! Made with creamy peanut butter, but otherwise as is. Will make again! Made for PAC Spring 2011.

MY3Chefsfall 2008. These are a chocolate lovers dream candy. I love the mix of nuts and rice krispies. I used a generic rice kirispi cereal and it came out great. I also used mixed nuts as I had those on hand, (90%peanuts) The addition of th epeanut butter was a delight. These will be on my cookie trays this holiday. Thank you so much!
