Chocolate Peanut Butter Krispy Treats (Secret Recipe Club)
Happy Monday! Did you think I forgot about you this morning? Have no fear – it’s a later than normal post because once again, it’s Secret Recipe Club reveal day! Always a fun day of the month 🙂
My assigned blog this time around was This Chick Cooks. Katie has some great stuff to choose from, with her recent recipes being more on the healthy side due to a lifestyle change she made. A few that caught my eye were the Chick Pea Summer Salad and the Summer Squash Soup. Yum!
But, even though I had a few of the “good” ones bookmarked, I ultimately went with a “bad” one 😉 It wasn’t my fault! Since I made the Baba Au Rhum for my brother-in-law’s birthday, I had to come up with a kid-friendly dessert for the little ones…sooooo….
These delicious treats were enjoyed by all! Thanks for a great recipe, Katie!
Chocolate Peanut Butter Krispy Treats
slightly adapted from This Chick Cooks
1 (10 ounce) bag mini marshmallows
6 cups crispy rice cereal
3 tablespoons butter
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
2 tablespoons half & half
In a large bowl, melt butter and marshmallows in microwave for about 60-90 seconds. Stir (spray spoon with cooking spray to avoid a sticky mess!) and pop in a little while longer if need be. Add peanut butter and stir, then cereal, and stir until evenly distributed. Pour and press into a greased 9×13 baking pan.
Put chocolate chips and half & half in a microwave safe bowl. Cook for 30 seconds, stir, then cook another 15-30 seconds, until smooth. Use a knife to drizzle chocolate over cereal. Cut into bars and serve.
