Peppermint Crunch Bars

Posted on

Crispy bars of fudge and peppermint topped with a chocolate glaze.

(I told you I would have to try another recipe with those wonderful little Kraft Mallow Bits!!)

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 (8oz) package of Philadelphia Cream Cheese
  • 4 c. semi sweet chocolate chips (divided)
  • 4 c. crisp rice cereal
  • 2 c. peppermint Mallow bits
  • 12 T butter

DIRECTIONS:

  • Melt 2 c. of chocolate chips in the microwave in 30 second increments until completely melted and smooth.
  • Soften cream cheese in microwave until smooth and creamy.
  • Combine soft cream cheese and melted chocolate.
  • Add crisp rice cereal and mallow bits(save a few to sprinkle on top!).  Stir until completely coated with the chocolate mixture.
  • Press mixture into the bottom of a foil-lined 9 x 13 cake pan.
  • Melt remaining 2 c. of chocolate chips and butter in microwave until smooth.
  • Pour chocolate glaze over the top of peppermint crisps and sprinkle with remaining mallow bits.
  • Refrigerate for a few hours before cutting.  To cut: remove from pan using foil and cut into squares

My thoughts: Easy, fun and YUM!  Enjoy!
