What do you usually bring on a picnic? I’m almost always in charge of dessert. Cupcakes, cookies, brownies, usually dessert that can hold up without refrigeration or needing two hands to serve. After all, you don’t grab dessert until your plate is already piled of hot dogs, macaroni salad, potato salad, and other picnic classics (I’m not very good at balancing my plate). These Peanut Butter Rice Crispy Treat Truffles are the perfect size to squeeze dessert onto your plate for your summer picnic.
I’m pretty much obsessed with rice crispy treats. It was only natural for me to make them into little bites. I strongly believe you can’t have a picnic without something chocolate and peanut butter; however, if you are worried about peanut allergies, they are still addictive without the peanut butter.
Since tomorrow is Memorial Day in the US, I decorated with patriotic sprinkles. You can dress up these truffles for any occasion – red and green for Christmas, blue or pink for a baby shower, rainbow for a birthday party, or your favorite color just because. You can even decorate with chopped peanuts or simply leave them plain.
Of course the one downfall to these peanut butter truffles is the chocolate may melt if left out in the sun too long. Keep them in the shade, in a cooler, or keep them in the refrigerator right before serving to ensure minimal melting.
Oh I almost forgot to mention these are no bake truffles, so no need to turn on the oven when it’s a million degrees outside. There is some heat from the stovetop, but it’s only long enough to melt the marshmallows then later to melt the chocolate. And they can be made ahead of time so you aren’t stressed on picnic day. © Chocolate Moosey. All images and content are copyright protected. Please do not use my images without prior permission.
