Chocolate Cream Crispie Treats

oreo crispy treatsEveryone loves Rice Krispie Treats. Seriously, I always see them at birthday parties, bridal showers, and every party in between. They’re easy to make, easy to pick up and eat, and who doesn’t love a crunchy dessert, right? Well, the problem is that they’re boring. They’re boring because they’re everywhere. Okay, sometimes people put them on sticks or shape them in balls, but they’re always the same. This recipe adds just a bit of awesomeness with the crushed chocolate and added creamy filling, but is just as easy. Just one extra ingredients makes these super special.

I first had these at my mom’s school’s Hanukkah party a couple of years ago, and have been wanting to make them ever since. Well, I’m not a big maker of Rice Krispies treats in general, but when Newman-O’s were on sale the same week that organic crispy rice cereal was, I knew I had to try them.

Want to make a super easy treat for a party? Want to make a quick and simple dessert with your young child? This is the recipe for you! Richie and I made this while dinner was cooking one night, and he definitely loved making it. Plus, he knew that after dinner he’d get some of this treat, so he ate dinner pretty well that night.
