Chocolate rice crispy treats

Have you ever had the original store bought rice crispy treat before? They are loaded with sugar, unhealthy ingredients and offer no nutrition at all. These chocolate rice crispy treats are another story.

Have you ever being sledding with your kids before? We have had so much snow lately in New Jersey that snow activities are pretty common especially on the weekends. We live around many parks and hills so tubbing and sledding it is pretty common. My kids enjoy both but for some reason I get a bit afraid when rolling down the hill and catching up some speed. I guess I am getting older and afraid I will brake a bone or something! My kids love it of course but I can’t help but be a little bit afraid.

These chocolate rice crispy treats were our treat when we headed home. We paired it together with some hot chocolate and it was just perfect to keeps us warm. Given that neither the chocolate rice crispy treats or the hot chocolate were exceptionally sweet it was perfect. I always associated hot chocolate and rice crispy treats and sweet foods but not my versions!

For these chocolate rice crispy treats I used Truvia® Brown Sugar Blend  to sweetened them. ½ cup of this blend has 210 calories and provides the same sweetness as one cup of brown sugar that has 830 calories. Since I only used 1/4 cup for this recipe the calories were even less. This blend is great for baking cookies and cakes. Visit Truvia® to learn more about their products and other recipes. I am sure you will find something that you will like.

These chocolate rice crispy treat are not sweet at all, which is good since I don’t want my kids to over load themselves on sugar.
