Chubby Hubby Rice Crispy Treats- – Soft, gooey bars made with crispy rice cereal, chocolate covered pretzels and peanut butter…the same combo as the classic ice cream!
A few months ago, we moved halfway across the country to Vermont. I went from being a Midwestern girl to a New Englander. 😲
While I do miss getting a good taco from a local place in our former neighborhood, Vermont does have amazing cheese, chocolate and of course, Ben & Jerry’s ice cream.
Today’s recipe is based on a classic Ben & Jerry’s ice cream flavor: Chubby Hubby
Chubby Hubby Ice Cream is vanilla ice cream, with chocolate covered pretzel chunks, plus, chocolate and peanut butter swirls. It’s yummy.
Our Crispy Rice Treats Ingredients:
- Crispy rice cereal ( ex: Rice Krispies or brand equivalent)
- Peanut butter
- Mini marshmallows
- Chocolate covered pretzels
- Chocolate chips + Canola or Vegetable oil
A few recipe notes:
- Be sure to line your baking pan with foil, then, spray the foil with non stick cooking spray. This makes your life so much easier when it comes to getting the bars out of the pan, cutting them and clean up.
- If you don’t have a 9 x 9 pan, a 9 x 13 will work. However, your topping ingredients ( chocolate chips & pretzels) will need to be increased.
- The key to a soft crispy rice treat? Melt your marshmallow slowly and over low heat. Makes a big difference!
- Don’t forget to freeze your chocolate covered pretzels! Pretzels at room temperature will melt much quicker when the melted chocolate chips are spread on top.
- If you are melting your chocolate chips in the microwave, do this in 30 second intervals to avoid burning the chocolate.
