This is quick and easy and a good marriage of Chocolate and Peanut Butter. The kids will go for it as well.

When we first tasted this pie, the Crew and I immediately loved how much it tastes like our favorite Girl Scout Cookies! And even though the Rice Krispies get crushed in the prep, you still get the wonderful “snap, crackle, pop” with each bite! This is a SUPER easy recipe - perfect for kids to jump in on and lend a hand.

    Variation: In place of pudding prepare with Chocolate Ice Cream. I also use Chocolate Ice Cream instead of the pudding at times. It is also very good. Happy cooking, Gary
