This lighter version of the beloved after-school snack gets a big boost from chocolate peanut butter powder, giving it nutty richness and enough chocolaty flavor to satisfy a craving. The three-bite treats hold up well for 3 to 5 days in an airtight container, so they’re a good make-ahead option. You might be tempted to stir the peanut butter powder into the melted marshmallows before adding the cereal, but doing so causes the mixture to seize and harden.

Ingredients

Cooking spray

4 spray(s)

Mini marshmallows

1 cup(s)

Light butter

2 tsp

Puffed rice cereal

1½ cup(s)

Chocolate peanut butter powder

Add the cereal and peanut butter powder, stirring until well combined. Divide the mixture into 12 equal portions, shaping each into a ball.
