Chocolate Rice Krispies Crunch {Grandma’s No Bake Cookies}


Last week I shared about my grandmother’s recipe box. Then I shared a picture on Facebook for no bake cookies that were made from a recipe I found in my grandmother’s recipe box.

Several of you asked that I share the recipe. I was more than happy to share it, but I am afraid some of you may be a bit disappointed because this recipe is so easy it is not much of a recipe at all. However, it is really really good.

This is one of those recipes that makes me wonder why I have never thought to try it before. It is so easy and so good.

In fact this recipe only contains two ingredients. It contains chocolate and rice krispy type cereal. That is it. See I told you it was easy.

I did adapt the chocolate to cereal ratio a little, but besides that it is still Grandma’s basic recipe.

Simple and tasty. I love recipes like this!

  1. Love these simple recipes and what a treasure to have from your grandmother! And, now, there’s a brown rice krispie that’s GF… which I’m sure you know about :)

    My mom makes a version – jazzed up a bit, that we devour at Christmastime. Add crushed oreos and use mint chocolate chips. Oh, my!

  2. No added sugar–nice! Thanks for sharing your grandma’s recipe!

  3. Hi Lynn,
    I love your blog, I read it all the time. This morning when I clicked on I saw the picture of your Grandma’s recipe. The typed card looks just like some I have from my Grandma. I loved sitting with her in her little kitchen going through her recipe box. The picture brought back great memories. Plus the recipe looks good too.
    Thanks for sharing.

  4. These look just like something you buy at the store – Little Debbie makes them I think BUT they are contaminated with Nuts which I can’t have.

    I am so excited about this! I’m adding them to my baking list for tonight!

    Thanks for sharing!!!

    • @Amy, I remember those and I think these are kind of the same. I agree with the nut issue. My daughter can not have peanuts or tree nuts and snacks and desserts are hard to find. So, I love easy homemade recipes like this. I hope you enjoy them!

  5. Another Suburban Mom says:

    Those sound awesome! Would I be a horrible person if I told you I want to mix chocolate and peanut butter chips?

  6. These are REALLY good when swapping part of the chocolate for Andes Mint chips :D

  7. These look delicious. Isn’t it just great when something so simple can be so good?! I love the ideas above of adding 1/2 peanut butter chipw or 1/2 Andes chips…yum! Thanks for sharing!

  8. If you want to try something even better, try CORNFLAKES….I do this to recreate one of my favorite german candies, “ChocoCrossies”…

  9. Thank you so much for this simple recipe! I modified it a bit though. :) Used a few less milk chocolate chips and added a cup of peanut butter – tasted just like a Whatchamacalit! At least what my husband and I remember it tasting like. Thank you!!

  10. I just found this recipe–didn’t occur to me to google it before. I remember making these in my home ec class when I was in school (1960′s). I loved them. My daughter makes oatmeal no bakes all the time, but I’ve never cared for them; I would always remember the Rice Krispie ones and wish I could make them. Thank you so much for posting this, because I really didn’t remember how…been too long, I guess.

  11. Is this gluten free?

    • If you use the gluten free rice crispies and gluten free chocolate, which most chocolate is, they are gluten free. This is one of those things that no one will be able to tell is gluten free.
