When I first saw this on Pinterest it immediately took me back to my childhood. We thought it was such a big deal to get Little Debbie snacks. Needless to say, it wasn’t often that we got these treats, but when we did it was pretty darn special.
I tweaked the original recipe a little bit and they turned out wonderful.
Here is how I did it:
- 2 jars of crock pot caramel (easy peasy recipe can be found here)
- 1 1/2 cups of semi sweet chocolate chips
- 1 3/4 cups of a crispy rice cereal
Pour the caramel and chocolate chips into a 1 1 /2 – 2 quart crock pot.
Place the lid on and turn to low.
Cook for 1 – 2 hours until chocolate chips start melting well. Stir to incorporate as they’re melting. I checked after about 40 minutes.
Once it’s completely melted turn the heat off and stir in the crispy rice cereal. Make sure the cereal is completely coated.
You can either pour onto a wax paper lined cookie sheet or drop by the spoonfuls into lined muffin tins. I put cupcake liners in my muffin tin and it was perfect for portion control (not that it stopped me from eating 3 at one time…. just sayin’!).
These were delicious and very reminiscent of the Little Debbie snacks that I remembered. These will definitely make it into my rotation of snackables for the hubs lunch and of course for me and Miss Maddy.
