  • In the top of a double boiler, melt chocolate chips and butter together, stirring occasionally. Mix in confectioners' sugar and water, and stir until smooth. Spread the chocolate mixture evenly over the cereal layer in the pan. Top with the remaining cereal mixture, and press down lightly. Cover, and chill for about 1 hour before cutting into squares.

We've been enjoying this recipe for 30 years -- we begged my mom to make them when we were kids and now my son and niece beg for them! The recipe used to be on the chips bag but I haven't seen it there in years. It IS rich but it is also soooo good! The only change I'd make just to make the prep easier: Instead of a double boiler just combine the chocolate chips confectioner's sugar butter (cut into bits) and water in a medium size glass bowl. (I use a 4-cup glass pyrex measuring cup.) Stir to combine then microwave on high for 1 min. Stir again and microwave an additional minute. Stir til chips melt and mixture is smooth then spread immediately. Like other fudge if you stir too long it will get too thick to easily spread. Also refrigerating the krispies while you prepare the fudge layer makes it much easier to spread the fudge over them. We keep ours in the fridge after they're made and take squares out as we want them. They hold together better and the taste is much better chilled than room temp. Read More

This recipe brought words to my husband's mouth that I never thought I would hear "They are too sweet." These are very rich and very sweet and you will have to cut them into very small bars. Don't get me wrong they are good but will give you a sugar rush from the Gods if you eat too many. I also hated that I dirtied so many dishes just to make rice crispy treats. I probably won't make again. Read More

This is my all time favorite "christmas cookie". Because they are so rich we only make them once a year. This has been a family tradition with my mother and I for 26 yrs and now my daughter and I have taken it over. Read More

Can't keep my kids and the neighbor kids out of this one! I thought the chocolate was a little difficult to spread and the sandwich effect would be ruined. I was wrong. Doesn't have to be perfect because they looked great when I cut into them. Thanks. I'll be making these again and again! Read More

These are fantastic! Loved the texture of the crunchy outside with the smoothy fudgy middle. I used natural PB and I think that prevented them from being overly sweet like some other reviewers found. Read More

These are awesome but who is Lori and why is she naming them? They were on the bag of Nestle's Butterscotch morsels for years starting in the 70's under the name "Crunchy Fudge Sandwiches". Read More

This recipe is delicious but very rich! My 11 year old daughter loves it my 14 year old son is not so keen on it. This is perhaps more something that the under-12 age group would go for? A bit too rich for me too. Read More
