Chocolate Cherry Treats
Need a FAST, EASY and YUMMY dessert? Here it is. Not the best picture on our granite counter, but trust me...they are yummy.
I got this recipe in my Food Network Magazine...it was a pull out from Kellogg's.
They are basically Chocolate Cherry Rice Krispie Bars. They were so intriguing, I just had to try it. I didn't think they were going to be good, but what the heck...
2 c Kellogg's Rice Krispies Cereal
1 c semisweet chocolate chips
1/2 c chopped dried cherries
1/2 c chopped pistachio nuts
3 T butter
2 c miniature marshmallow or 20 regular marshmallows
1 t vanilla
In a large bowl combine Rice Krispies, chocolate, cherries and nuts
In medium saucepan melt butter over low heat. Add marshmallows. Stir until completely melted. Remove from heat. Stir in vanilla. Pour over cereal mixture. Stir until well coated.
Evenly press into 8 x 8 x 2 dish coated with cooking spray. Refrigerate for 30 minutes. Cut into squares. Best if served the same day.
TRUST ME...they are just as yummy on day 2 & day 3, but there wasn't any left to test them on day 4! lol
This is a great treat if you are short on time! Hope you enjoyed them as much as we did!
