Peanut Butter Chocolate Rice Krispie Treats

Sometimes you have to ask your co-workers to do favors for you, or sometimes you make a mistake that they have to fix. When this happens, I like to make them a treat. It makes them hate me less and gives me a good excuse to bake.

So these are my “I’m sorry, Brenda, for asking you to give someone a message when you were on vacation, please don’t hate me Rice Krispie Treats”.

I’ve never made these before, so this was a fun adventure!

You pour about 3/4 cup of Corn Syrup and 3/4 cup of sugar into a large pan, and heat, mixing frequently, until it comes to a boil.

Then remove from heat and mix in about 3/4 cup of peanut butter (or just, ya know, slap a few dollops in there- who’s got the time and patience to measure out peanut butter, are you nuts?? …btw…”nuts” get it? I’m the funniest person in the world, don’t act like I’m not.)

Now shake about half a box (4 cups) of Rice Krispies in there and mix together well.

Line a pan (9×13 or really whatever you’d like) with parchment paper, and awkwardly transfer your mixture into the pan.

Now melt about 1 package of chocolate chips in the microwave (put in for 30 seconds, take out and stir, put in for another 30 seconds, take out and stir, until it’s smooth).

Definitely try not to get so caught up in eating crumbs off the spoon that you forget about the chocolate, and over-cook it. Not that I would ever do that….

Somehow fix your scalded chocolate enough to slather it onto your rice krispie mixture.

Let sit for a while until the chocolate has cooled and is no longer super gloppy. Then cut into whatever size/number of pieces that you want (this batch made about 12 good-sized pieces), and enjoy!
