“Mud” Cookies

Even though these don’t have a very appetizing name… just picture chocolate and peanut butter… yes, more peanut butter… covered rice crispy cereal tossed in icing sugar when set!  A quick easy way to get your chocolate, chocolate/peanut butter fix!



Here are the ingredients… all 4 of them!!!


I started by putting the chocolate chips and peanut butter in a microwave safe medium sized bowl and microwaving it on high heat until smooth and melted, about 2 minutes.


I poured this mixture into the bowl with the rice crispy cereal and mixed until the cereal was evenly coated with the chocolate/peanut butter mixture.


Then dropped the mixture by the tablespoonful onto parchment paper lined cookie sheets before placing the pans in the fridge to allow the cookies to set before moving on to the next and final step before we could eat them!


Once fully set, I placed the cookies a few at a time into a bag with 1/2 cup icing sugar and shook the bag to fully coat the cookies.


And that’s it… they are ready to enjoy!
