I love holiday desserts! This Chocolate-Glazed Coconut Peanut Butter Rice Krispies Balls recipe is part of a sponsored shop on behalf of #KraftEssentials and Collective Bias Social Fabric Community.
Christmas may be over but holiday dessert recipes are NOT. But then again… are they ever hehe. I am a sugar lover and I therefore love desserts in any shape or form. Hopefully this will not be as huge of a part of my life in the new year since I’m trying to change my eating habits but until then… holidays are still technically here and I will bask in the joy of sweetness.
New Years Eve is tomorrow and therefore I wanted to prepare an easy dessert recipe that you can do at home with only a few ingredients. These are ingredients you might already have on hand, especially if it’s the holiday season. And to show you just how simple this process really is – I’ve created a video of the recipe as I’m preparing it.
Heads up, this is my first recipe video filmed with my dSLRs. I’m trying to use them more often and I definitely know that I need to get a second tripod.. but either way, I’d love to get feedback on the video itself! Let me know what you think in the comments below!
So back to this rice krispie balls recipe. I used peanut butter and coconut as the main flavors – they are lovely together but they are not used together enough in recipes, I think. The coating of dark chocolate adds another lovely dimension to this New Year Eve appetizer or dessert – you’re sure to wow your guests with this one. And your kids!
I went to Walmart and got some Kraft products there to create a simple and easy holiday desserts recipe. These products are essentials and I do tend to have a variety of them on hand – since they are very versatile and can be used in many different recipes. Whether it’s for Christmas dessert recipes, or if it’s another time in the year, it can work for Thanksgiving dessert recipes, but it could really work on any other easy dessert recipes. Gotta love versatility, no?
This recipe is adapted from my Milky Way Rice Krispies Balls recipe.
