A super simple chocolate treat that has 'hints of healthy', lower sugar - kids and friends will love!
Ingredients
  • 2 bars low sugar chocolate - I use Simply Lite, no sugar added Milk Chocolate from Trader Joe's
  • ½ cup rice crispy cereal

  • couple drops pure vanilla extract
  • mini parchment cups
  • spray oil
Instructions
  1. spray oil a microwave safe bowl
  2. break up low sugar chocolate into small chunks and place in a microwave safe bowl
  3. place bowl on top of a dish to prevent the bowl from getting too hot
  4. microwave chocolate in 20 second intervals

  8. stir in rice crispies
  9. spoon in chocolate mixture into mini parchment paper cups (about 1½ Tablespoons full per cup)
