These no-bake treats taste like bite-sized candy bars and are terrific with a cup of coffee. Prepare them up to two days in advance, and store in the refrigerator in an airtight container.
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
3/4 cup white chocolate chips
1 1/2 cups oven-toasted rice cereal (such as Rice Krispies)
3/4 cup dried cherries
1/3 cup slivered almonds
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
How to Make It
Cover a large baking sheet with wax paper.
Place semisweet and white chocolate chips in a medium glass bowl; microwave at HIGH 45 seconds. Stir, and microwave an additional 45 seconds or until almost melted. Stir until smooth. Add cereal and remaining ingredients; stir quickly to combine. Drop mixture by tablespoonfuls onto prepared baking sheet; chill 1 hour or until firm.
This was SUPER easy, SUPER fast, and SUPER delicious!!! I got a call that I was having people over and I finished this in no time!!! I make with strawberries instead of cherries (that's what I had on hand) and I actually used milk chocolate with white chocolate. It tasted great but I also want to try the semisweet chocolate. It probably won't be as sweet as with milk chocolate.
Very rich, thoroughly decadent...2 small crisps are ample for me a confirmed chocoholic (OK, well maybe 3, if eaten slowly!)
I used Ghirardelli chocolate (bittersweet and milk instead of white) and cranberries - slightly tart to balance out the sweetness. A (very) easy to make gourmet treat (super Mother's day gift the kids can make with or without Dad's help!)
Delicious and oh so easy to make! The chocolate with the sweet cherries are wonderful. Good for kids as well as adults. I whipped these up in minutes and brought to party that evening - everyone loved them!
These are delicious and sooooo easy to make. It says to store them in the refrigerator, which is fine, but I would make sure they have time to come to room temp. before you serve them because the texture is better when they are slightly softer. Like a previous reviewer said, just like a little bite-sized candy bar. And I loved the cherries in this recipe. These make a great treat to whip up if you're having company over or for the holidays, and they won't take time away from other, more time-consuming kitchen endeavors. A+!
