Chocolate Cherry Crispies.
I’ve got one of the quickest, easiest, healthiest desserts comin’ at you.
It only takes 3 ingredients:
Hence the name.
Yep, that’s right. Cereal, chocolate chunks and dried cherries (or fruit of your choice!)
They come out looking like this:
And then you try not to consume 16 in one sitting. Having your significant other, friend or family member handcuff you helps. I highly recommend it.
Because all you will want to do is eat every single one.
Chocolate Cherry Crispies
makes about 12 crispies
3 cups rice cereal (white or brown)
1/4 cup dried cherries, chopped
1/2 cup dark chocolate chunks, melted
Combine rice cereal and cherries in a bowl. Melt chocolate chips (I do it in the microwave) and pour over cereal mix. Use a spatula to combine and spread chocolate evenly. Using an ice cream scooper, scoop out crispies and lay them on a baking sheet. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
I’m going to make another batch.

Those look delicious. I’ve never cooked with cherries before (I know, sinful). Looks like a new weekend project. :)
All I can say is YUM! I loved rice crispies growing up (and still do ;) ), but now I can enjoy this delicious grown-up version!
Oh, wow. I’m going to have to make that for my kids!! I’ll bet that they’re all gone in one afternoon!
Soo easy! And they sound delicious.
Hooray for easy, yummy recipes! Would it work without an ice cream scooper? Surprisingly, I don’t have one. Not that I need one since I tend to eat pints of ice cream in one sitting!
Yes I’m sure it would – just get your hands dirty. :)
Much easier than the traditional rice krispies recipe, which obviously never gets made in my kitchen. I am a huge fan of throwing random shit in with cereal so this is perfect. Next time I am in clearwater, this is my go-to dessert.
OH yum! I love the combo of chocolate and cherries!! And awesome that this is a gluten free treat too!! :)
They look delicious!
These look great! I may have to add them to my Holiday cookie lineup.
Yum!! I don’t usually like choco-cherry stuff (cherry garcia, chocolate covered cherries, etc.) but I know I’d like those :-)
that is SUCH a good idea and I am just thinking up all the combinations that can happen witn this in my head :) too manyyy
So simple and so good…this might be the death of me.
Looks simple & delicious! I’ve been craving dark chocolate like crazy lately.
I wanna try these with brown rice crispies.
Adore! What a lovely (and easy) dessert! I would probably have to dominate the entire sheet as well :)
These three ingredients make me happy. Mmm.
i used to make this when i was a kid, and have them with ice cream! how delicious!
I am a BIG fan of easy recipes like this!!
Delicious! I have made the same, but I subbed almonds for the rice crispies- so, so good!
I made these last night to take to a gathering of friends. They were a tad messy…mine didn’t turn out in neat scoops like yours. But, they tasted great!! Now I have to decide if I can really share…Hmmm.
Hehehe I saw keep them all to yourself!
I should know better than to read your blog at 10:30pm… Now I’m totally craving these treats!
Dessert before lunch sounds good! :)
These are amazing! Will be making many more since they don’t last long :). Thanks!
