Doesn’t this picture makes you want to grab one… or two? Well, these Dulce de Leche and Cocoa Pebbles Almond bars are definitely all gone, and not one single crumb was left behind after making them for my family. That’s because they are too good you guys! You totally got to try ’em.
I like how they are satisfying and oh so decadent at the same time. I added tons of almonds for energy, and dulce de leche for a gooey and sweet touch. The key ingredient on this recipe thou is the Cocoa Pebbles. They add one more layer of delicious chocolate flavor and fun into this recipe. It aso gives the right cereal crunch that makes these bars amazing.
Can you imagine them with a cup of coffee or a tall glass of cold milk? That’s exactly how me and my little girl enjoyed them, and it was the perfect combination.
When making this recipe follow these tips:
- Use parchment paper in the bottom and sides of the baking dish. I missed it on the sides the first time and is so important you don’t so the bars can come out nicely.
- Use a flat bottom glass to press the mixture down. This will make everything stick together better and form a strong base for the bars to hold up once out of the oven.
One more tip:
When it comes out of the oven, the dulce de leche will be oozing, so even though you will be tempted to eat it all with a spoon, wait until it cools down before cutting it into long vertical pieces to create the bars.
I think I will using my daughter’s Cocoa Cereal more often to make decadent treats like this one.
- 3½ cups Cocoa Pebbles
- 6 ounces almonds
- 1 stick butter, melted
- 6 ounces dulce de leche
- 1 cup mini chocolate chips
- Preheat oven to 325°F.
- In a food processor, pulse 3 cups of Cocoa Pebbles with the almonds to until obtaining a coarse crumb mixture.
- In a bowl mix the cereal and almonds mixture with melted butter and press firmly into a parchment paper lined baking dish approximately 5 x 7 so you can get ½ inch thick bars.
- Warm the dulce de leche in the microwave for a little bit less than a minute so it can be pourable and pour it over this first layer of the bars.
- Cover it whole Cocoa Pebbles flakes and mini chocolate chips, spreading them evenly on the top coat of the bars.
- Bake 25 minutes.
- Once out of the oven, wait until it cools completely at least for an hour before cutting into bars.
- Yields about 10-12 depending on size.
