I tried this fun twist on the classic Rice Krispies, and WOW they were seriously good! We love rice kripies at our house, but this was definitely taking it up a notch! I made these for the BYU game last weekend and sadly, they were about the only good thing about the game. Unfortunately, our Cougars lost to their biggest rivals for the 3rd staright year and my boys were crushed! Luckily, these treats were a HUGE hit and were happily gobbled up , before the game got too bad:) I will definitely be making these again and again. In fact my boys are already begging me to make them to pack in their lunches for school. You just can’t go wrong with chocolate and peanut butter! Yum!
FYI I doubled the recipe to make the extra thick ones shown (I had a hungry crew of boys to feed:)
