The Chic Wife’s, Kris Schoels, has baked up some great recipes, a sampling is below of the scrumptious treats for your viewing pleasure. Since it’s cereal, it’s an affordable recipe that readers can duplicate. Using favorite cereals here are a few fun recipes by the Chic Wife, such as Peanut Butter Toast Crunch Treats, Cookie Crisp Chocolate Bark, and Fruity Pebbles Truffles to tempt everyone’s palette.
Cookie Crisp Chocolate Bark
Milk chocolate bark
1 box of Cookie Crisp cereal
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or aluminum foil. In a double boiler or the microwave, melt the milk chocolate bark – pour evenly over the lined baking sheet.
Before the chocolate sets, line it with the mini cookie cereal. Melt white chocolate and drizzle overtop of the bark. Let set and then break into pieces, or if it’s thin enough- cut up with a knife.
Fruity Pebble Truffles
- Fruity Pebble Truffles
- 1 Box of Fruity Pebbles (the larger the better!)
- 1 container of vanilla icing
- White Chocolate Bark
Using a food processor, crush 4 cups of the the cereal until it has a fine consistency (you can use more or less cereal- just use less icing when you make the dough). Remove 1/4 cup of crushed pebbles for garnish. Stir in 1/2 cup of icing at a time, until the “dough” is able to be pinched together (and not crumble) Take about 2 tbsp of “dough” and roll into a ball- use an ice cream scoop for easier rolling. Place on a lined baking sheet Place baking sheet in the freezer for 10-15 minutes, until the truffles have firmed up enough that they stay together when dipped in chocolate Melt the chocolate bark, a minute at a time, in a medium sized bowl in the microwave- being careful that it doesn’t burn. Dip the “dough” balls into the white chocolate, covering them completely. Place back on lined baking sheet and sprinkle with extra pebble dust. Allow chocolate to set- typically overnight.
