Chocolate–peanut butter krispie bites
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.
