Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Rice Krispie Treats
I don't make normal Rice Krispie treats for the girls often. I like my snacks to have a little nutritional value.
I do not claim that these are nutritious, of course they aren't - but they do have a leg up on the original so I pretend :)
Melt together in a sauce pan:
½ cup peanut butter
½ cup honey
take off the heat and add 1 tsp vanilla
now, if you are patient, you will wait until the mixture has cooled and add chocolate chips. If you are me, you will add them in right away and they will half way melt and become part of the sauce.
Pour over 3 cups of Rice Krispies mix well. Press into greased 9x9 pan and allow to cool. I put mine in the freezer and forgot about them until the next day. They were yummy as an after school snack today.
This is my jumping off point - my base. Now I want to try things like less honey and adding puffed what into the mix. I wonder if Craisins would taste good in them . . .
