I make these cookies every Christmas & someone always asks for the recipe. In lieu of white choc you can use colored chocolate discs or semi-sweet chocolate for a variety. Delicious Read More

this is good but mostly a good place to start. i thought it was too much chocolate (and i'm a choc-o-holic) and not enough crispies. the nice thing is you can vary alot according to taste. next time i think i might actually break up some pretzles and put them in. i also followed the suggestion of others and poured it all into a pan; it took a while to firm so i put that in the fridge and then they were a pain to cut into bars! next time if there is one i think i will drop them by spoonful.

I changed the recipe to tailor more to traditional rice crispy treats. I used the same amount of peanuts and white chocolate (which I colored green for St. Patrick's Day) but increased the peanut butter to 1.5 cups marshmallows to 2.5 cups and rice crispies to about 5 cups. I put the mixture into a large pan to harden and they turned out great! Read More

I've made this but have used less marshmallows and added even mini m&m's and coconut. For the holidays I've even added color sprinkles to them just before putting the balls in the fridge to set. Read More

Great recipe found it through doing a 'gluten free' search. although i must warn any folks with a gluten allergy out there that most puffed rice cereals contain malt/malt extract and so they're NOT gluten free. Guess the rule is to be careful with all ingredients. Read More
