Peanut Butter Rice Krispies Treats with Chocolate Peanut Butter Drizzle

10 Apr

I have been slacking… well on this blog.  I’ve been working two jobs, and it’s been kicking my butt.  I spend all of my spare time passed out.  So, I thought of something quick, simple, and yummy that I could make to snack on for the week… Rice Krispies Treats!

Who doesn’t love Rice Krispies treats?  They’re one of my boyfriend’s favorite sweet treats, and I’m always looking for ways to improve them.  It would be silly for me to give you the recipe for regular Rice Krispies Treats, because it is on the box!  Today I added some peanut butter to the mix (and of course more butter), and I didn’t think that made them special enough, so I topped them with a chocolate and peanut butter drizzle.

Ingredients:

1 (10oz) package of marshmallows

1 stick of butter

3 tsp Creamy Peanut Butter

6 Cups Rice Krispies Cereal

Method:

Melt butter on medium low until it starts to foam white, add marshmallows, and stir until completely melted.  Then, add peanut butter until incorporated into the mixture.  Stir in the rice krispies, then pour the mixture into an 8X8 greased pan.

Topping:

A Handful of Chocolate Chips (this is technical stuff, people)

3 tsp of Creamy Peanut Butter

Method:  Melt chocolate in the microwave, on high,  in 30 second intervals, stirring in between, until completely melted.  Add peanut butter, and stir until incorporated.

Drizzle over the treats, I used a ziplock bag with the tip snipped off.  Allow to set before you cut into the Rice Krispies treats.
