Peanut Butter Rice Crispy Bars

So excited to have Kristy from The Diary of Dave's Wife back today!

Hello Everyone, I am so happy to be back here at Eighteen25. Some of you might remember my last post when  I pretty much professed my love for peanut butter M&M's. Well today I am back to share another fun treat, made with that delicious combination of peanut butter and chocolate. 

When I was a kid, my mom would always make homemade treats for Easter. She was famous for deliciously soft sugar cookies with buttercream frosting, and rice crispy treats. Some years, the rice crispy treats were shaped like Easter eggs, and some times they were shaped like carrots. But my favorite were peanut butter rice crispy treats topped with chocolate.

Instead of your typical melted marshmallow and butter combinations, these are made with creamy peanut butter, and corn syrup, and can be made within a matter of minutes.

Just follow my simple recipe:
Ingredients
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 1 cup corn syrup
  • 6 cups Rice Krispies
  • 1 ( 12 oz. ) bag chocolate chips
Instructions

In large saucepan, combine sugar and corn syrup. Heat to dissolve sugar and bring to boil; remove from heat. Stir in peanut butter. Add Rice Krispies and mix until well blended. Press into buttered 9X13 inch pan. In small saucepan, melt together chocolate chips. Spread melted chocolate over top of Rice Krispies mixture. Cool. Cut into 1" bars.  

See I told you these were easy peasy.

I like to cut them into one inch squares so that they are easy to pop in my mouth, and perhaps make it look like I didn't eat too much.  Because just one of these isn't enough.
