Muddy Buddy Rice Krispie Bites

Muddy Buddy Rice Krispie Treats

What a few days it has been. We are having some water issues, so we can't do laundry, use the dishwasher or the water too much .We can take quick showers but that is about it! Today is day 4 of this, and day 3 of the guys working on the issue! So I haven't wanted to cook so much, between the water issue and the guys being here near dinnertime and not wanting to dirty too many dishes. Hopefully the issue will be resolved today!

I did manage to whip up these yummy treats, though. They are originally from Mallow and Co. I changed the recipe a little to make it more Weight Watchers friendly. I made 60 bites for 1 Point Plus each.

Muddy Buddy Rice Krispie Treats

4 Tbsp butter
3/4 cup chocolate chips
3/4 cup creamy peanut butter
6 cups (1 bag) mini marshmallows
1 tsp vanilla
6 cups Rice Krispies
3/4 cup powdered sugar

Pour half of the rice krispies in a large mixing bowl. Set aside. Stir together the butter, peanut butter, and chocolate chips in a large saucepan over medium heat until melted. Turn the heat down to low and add the marshmallows and vanilla extract.Stir, stir,stir until the marshmallows are all melted.

Once fully melted, take them off heat and pour over the rice krispies. Add the rest of the krispies. Stir quickly but gently to combine. Dump into a lightly greased 9x13 pan and let sit 5 minutes (on the counter). Lightly grease your hands then press down the krispie mix until even. Refrigerate for about 20 minutes.

Pour your powdered sugar in a bowl and pull out your cooled treats. Cut them up in into bite sized pieces (I cut them into squares, then cut the squares in half or in fourths), then roll them around in the powdered sugar. Tap them to shake off some of the excess sugar. You could also dump the powdered sugar in a bag and shake some pieces in that. Enjoy!!
