(1) Mix all the above ingredients, except one bag of the chocolate chips, together in a large bowl.
(2) Then, this is where your kids come in! Stick your clean hands into the mix and bring out a chunk. Shape the chunk into small balls. Now, you can either leave them as balls (which is easier to dunk into the chocolate) or you can flatten them (into a more cookie shape).

(3) Place these on a pan covered in wax paper, and then put them in the refrigerator to firm up while you melt the last bag of chocolate chips.
(4) Melt the package of chocolate chips in a safe bowl in the microwave. Don’t let the chocolate burn though! You can also use your fondue set for this part if you want.

(5) Once the chocolate has melted, place a toothpick in each Peanut Butter Krispie ball and then dip it in the chocolate. If you chose to shape the Krispies into cookie bars, you can just spoon or pour the chocolate onto the tops. You don’t have to cover the entire cookie if you don’t want to. Just a smidgen of chocolate on the Krispies is enough. But, if you want your Krispies smothered in chocolate, you can do that too.
(6) Place the Peanut Butter Krispies back into the refrigerator and let the chocolate covering harden.
