Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies

Submitted by: KAYLANA

Introduction

My one major food weakness is Reeses' Cups. I can't get enough of the combination of Chocolate and Peanut Butter with that little bit of saltiness. This recipe was made up to satisfy that craving, and at just 45 calories per "cookie" it does a pretty good job. My one major food weakness is Reeses' Cups.

Ingredients

    1/2 cup of Hershey's Sugar Free Chocolate Chunks
    1/2 cup No Sugar Added Peter Pan Peanut Butter
    3 cups Rice Krispies Cereal (may need more or less, eyeball consistency)
    A dash of salt

Directions

Microwave the chocolate chunks for 30 second intervals, stirring in between, until melted through. You want to let the chocolate cool a little so it doesn't completely melt the peanut butter, but you don't want it to harden. Usually by the time I have everything else ready the chocolate has cooled down a little. Stir in 1/2 a cup of No Sugar Added Peter Pan Peanut Butter and mix well. Start adding the Rice Krispies cereal a little at a time stirring as you go. You want the mixture to still be just a little gooey but for all the cereal to be coated. If you end up with it a little too dry just add a tablespoon or so of Peanut Butter. I like to add a decent dash of salt, but that's up to your tastes and dietary needs.

Using a tablespoon press a spoonful of the mixture against the side of the bowl. Spoon on to a foil lined cookie tray. You can wedge these things in as close as you're comfortable with since they don't have to bake.

Refrigerate at least one hour.

These come out crispy and with a great taste of peanut butter and chocolate. You need to store them in the refrigerator so they don't fall apart, but after they've set up you can put them in a baggie.
