Rice Krispy Fudge bars

Okay, The recipe called for Rice Krispies, and I used puffed rice cereal to lower the calories/make it a little healthier. They were good, but Jeremy and I both agreed they'd taste better with rice krispies. So...I'll include the nutrition for both below. I will try this recipe again soon with rice krispies.

  • 8 oz chocolate chips
  • 1 14 oz can Sweetened Fat-free Condensed Milk
  • 2 servings mini marshmallows (about 90 calories/serving)
  • 4 cups puffed rice (or Rice Krispies) cereal
  1. Line a 9×9 inch baking dish with aluminum foil letting the edges hang over the edges of the pan. Lightly spray with cooking spray.

  2. Stir the Sweetened Condensed Milk and the chocolate chips in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave it for 30 seconds, stir, then repeat until completely melted/blended.

  3. Fold in the cereal and the marshmallows.

  4. Spread the mixture into the foil lined pan.

  5. Refrigerate until firm, then cut into 12 squares.
