Posted on
These bar cookies are full of all your favorite Rocky Road ingredients with a twist– rice crispies and a thick Cream Cheese fudge. Easy and quick to make, this is sure to be one of your new go-to recipes!
INGREDIENTS:
  • 8 oz. Philadelphia Cream Cheese
  • 12 oz. semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 2c. mini marshmallows
  • 2c. rice krispies
  • 1c. dry roasted, salted peanuts
  • 1/2 c. creamy peanut butter
  • 1/4c. powdered sugar
DIRECTIONS:
  • Melt chocolate chips in microwave in 30 second increments, stirring well in between, until smooth.
  • Soften cream cheese in microwave until creamy and smooth.
  • Combine chocolate and cream cheese until well blended.
  • Take one cup of chocolate/cream cheese mixture out and set aside in a separate bowl.
  • To original mixture, add marshmallows, peanuts and rice krispies- stirring well to completely coat.
  • Press this mixture into a 9×9 pan that has been lined with foil.
  • To remaining bowl of chocolate and cream cheese, add peanut butter, mixing until smooth.
  • Add powdered sugar to desired consistency (should be thick yet still spreadable)
  • Spread this fudge layer over the top of the bars and freeze for 30 minutes.
  • Remove bars from the pan using the foil to lift out.  Cut into squares and serve!
My thoughts:  This was another recipe created for the RWOP website competition….no winning for me yet, but I’m going to keep trying! 🙂
 It was inspired by bar cookies my grandmother used to make with me when I was little.  Hers were called O’Henry Krispies and they were delicious!  The addition of cream cheese gives these bars a rich and creamy feel.  This is an incredibly easy dessert- but oh soooo yummy!  Hope you enjoy them!  r-
