It doesn't happen often, but when I get a sweets craving, it needs to be satisfied it immediately. On yesterday's cold, dreary Sunday, the need for sugar hit me and only peanut butter rice krispie treats would do--with chocolate on top (just like my mom used to make for my classroom birthday treat). These sugar cravings come so infrequently that I feel obligated to satiate them--just listening to my body, you know?
3 T butter
10 oz marshmallows
1/2 c peanut butter (I used Skippy Natural to lessen the sugar)
6 c rice krispies
1 bag semisweet chocolate chips
In a saucepan, melt butter and marshmallows over medium heat. Remove from heat and stir in peanut butter. Add cereal and mix until coated. Place mixture in a greased baking pan and mold with fingers. Melt bag of chocolate chips and use spatula to spread over pan of rice kris pies. Freeze for 5 minutes (so chocolate may set).
