Do you ever have those days where you just feel like you are running around with your head cut off? Maybe, it's the new school year and the not-so-summer schedule. Maybe it's that we now have a 5-day-a-weeker in the house which makes our day-to-day schedule a bit more rigid. Maybe it's the swim lessons, soccer practice, and gymnastics lessons. Maybe it's that we now have 4 kids.
Who knows. What I do know is that some days are just plain crazy at our house.
This one is called, 'No Bake Chocolate Cherry Bites' and guess what? They only have 4 ingredients. Can I get a 'holla! Yesirree Bob, these little beauties will help with that 'running around with your head cut off' feeling you might have (or maybe that is just me?) since they are super duper fast to make and help satisfy little and big tummies everywhere!
Dark chocolate, dried cherries and crispy rice cereal...who can resist that?
Now that I've teased you enough, I suppose I should give you the recipe.
No Bake Chocolate Cherry Bites (makes 20 bites)
*90 calories per bite
2 cups Gluten-Free Rice Krispies
1 cup dark chocolate chunks (can use semi-sweet chips or bittersweet chocolate chunks too depending on your preferred level of sweetness!)
1/2 cup dried cherries, chopped (no sugar added are best!)
2 Tbsp butter
Combine the dark chocolate and butter together in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave for 1 minute and then stir until the chocolate is melted. In medium-sized bowl, mix together the Rice Krispies and chopped dried cherries. Pour the chocolate over the cereal/ cherry mixture and stir until well combined. Using a small ice cream scoop, place dollops of the mixture onto a waxed paper lined cookie sheet. Let cool in the refrigerator for 20 minutes. Enjoy!!
