Peanut Butter Cocoa Krispie Treats

Last weekend was so busy.  We had a birthday party outside for my 5-year old nephew and it was so hot.  It had to have been the hottest day of the year so far.  Then, I got my garden planted!!!  It feels so good to have all my vegetable plants planted and I'm already planning on what to make with my zucchini.  

After a long hot weekend, the last thing I want to do is turn on my oven and spend a lot of time making dessert.  So, these 4-ingredient Peanut Butter Cocoa Krispies are the perfect treat.  They instantly became a favorite after my first bite and I have already made them twice in one week.
They are soft and chewy and loaded with peanut butter and chocolate flavor.  My picky little niece didn't even want to try them, then once I told her they were like a giant peanut butter cup krispie treat, she was all over that and she LOVED them!   

I guarantee this will become a regular dessert in my house.  They really are so good and extremely easy to make.  If you want them a little extra gooey, add slightly less cereal.  

Make these for your family ASAP :)

  2. Hi this treat looks great! I need to comment somewhere since I can't contact you directly. I pulled up your recipe index & there's some issues. Some boxes don't open up. So I tried Mexican food box & it pulled up cookies. An error somewhere. Can you fix it as I'd like to visit all your recipe boxes. Thank you!
