Chocolate Rice Krispies

Chocolate Rice Krispie Treats are hands down some of the most delectable treats I have ever eaten. Not to mention super easy and a total crowd pleaser. They are almost like regular homemade rice krispie treats but the addition of chocolate chips and cocoa powder takes these treats over the top and boy are they satisfying.

A few weeks ago at Blogher Food I finally got to meet the fabulous women behind Three Many Cooks. Omg. They are fabulous!! And so is their new book Perfect One-Dish Dinners: All You Need for Easy Get-Togethers by Pam Anderson of Three Many Cooks. And the best part about these recipes besides the fact that they are delicious, is that they are all made in 1 pot!! Can we say total time saver on dishes!! Pam makes cooking and entertaining, no matter what day of the week, a pleasure as she pairs appetizers, main courses and desserts in her latest cookbook.

This past week I decided to throw a little one dish dinner party for some of my friends here in LA! I made numerous dishes from their book including the Beef Carnitas (amazing), guacamole (most favorite dish on the entire planet) and ceviche (who doesn’t love an awesome ceviche!) … and to polish the meal off I treated my guests to these Chocolate Rice Krispie Treats. Holy cow. Life changing deliciousness was the result. You absolutely have to make these immediately!!

And… to make that task super easy, I am giving away 3 copies of Perfect One-Dish Dinners: All You Need for Easy Get-Togethers

  1. My favorite one dish(at least for this season) is beef stew as I can add all my favorite root veggies – my husband is now in love with parsnips!

  2. I love a good soup. My favorite is a cream of potato. Each time it comes out a little different but always delicious.

  3. the problem with rice krispee treats is that once I make them, i want to eat the whole pan. then my kids get mad at me for leaving just a few crumbs! add the chocolate and this becomes super dangerous! i love this book and the carnitas are on my list for this weeks meals! x

  4. Oh my I can’t wait to make these! My favorite one pan dish is apricot glazed porkchops with rice, yum :)

  5. i think THOSE delectable looking treats might be my favorite one-potter! followed shortly thereafter by a big hearty chicken leek and bacon pie.

  6. I love one dish dinners…I’d have to say it’s a toss up between beef goulash (my mom’s version equals awesomeness) or chicken enchiladas with lots of gooey cheese

  7. I LOVE rice krispie treats and don’t make them often enough. I can justify eating the whole batch myself by saying they are just air, so I guess it is okay.
    My favorite one dish wonder is a self-crusting vegetable quiche. My absolute favorite is cauliflower, but asparagus ranks right up there.

  8. Uhm, Gaby, your photo made my mouth water. I *just* finished getting through a dozen of the Rolo cookies over on Jamie from MyBakingAddiction’s blog, and now I’m going to have to pull out my One Dish Dinners book and make these. Amazing.

  9. These look amazing Gaby!! I have a big sweet tooth that these would fix perfectly! My favorite one dish meal right now is chili, especially since it is getting so cold!

  10. Mmmm… these are just in time for Halloween AND my sweet tooth!

    I would have to say my favorite one dish meal is crepes — savory (mushroom and onion) are my favorite, but sweet crepes (like strawberries and whipped cream) often show up as the main dish at my house as well 😉

  11. Wow!!! I’ve never seen ‘n chocolate version of rice krispie treats. Yummy!!
    My all time favourite one dish meal would have to be a nice spicy chicken breyani (biryani).

  12. My fav one dish meal is this garlic basil chicken with broccli and carrots over spagetti….we love it, the kids love it, super easy!

  14. Yum, I love the taste of rice krispie treats, always makes me feel like a kid again. These made me glad to be a grown up!

  15. These look delicious. I have Halloween candy on the brain and would probably add some peanut butter to these too for some peanut butter cup-inspired treats.

    My fave one-dish meal these days is a black bean and collard green stew with bacon and barbecue sauce. Thick and hearty for cold nights :)

  16. My (and our family’s” ) favorite one dish meal is — Chili Mac! Easy and quick when you don’t have time to cook and you are really hungry!

  17. I love this cookbook! I checked it out from the library and would love to own it! I made the Coq au Vin Blanc, the Green Chicken Enchiladas, and the Cassoulet. All were easy and delicious. Love it!

  18. I love rice krispie treats (made some this weekend) so I definitely want to try this. My favorite one dish meal is probably just soup that I make out of random things in my house.

  20. So, I guess if I already have chocolate Rice Krispies cereal I can replicate this entire recipe, just not add the cocoa and it should turn out almost the same, right? Thanks! :)
