Peanut Butter Rice Krispie Treats/ Dresser sneak peak

First, I have to give you a little sneak peak on the dresser's progress.  I am already in LOVE and she isn't completely finished yet.  Wait till you see her with hardware... I was a good girl and took lots of pics along the way to show how I created this look.

 More details and a tutorial on that coming soon...  On to the sugar :)

A favorite treat that I often make for parties or events that is super fast and easy to make is Peanut Butter Rice Krispie Treats.  They're much fancier looking (and tasting) than the original recipe, but kids love them too.  Enjoy!
Peanut Butter Rice Krispie Treats


Ingredients:

1 cup peanut butter (I prefer chunky)
1 cup sugar
1 cup Karo syrup
5 cups Rice Krispies (cheap generic brands work just as well)

1 cup milk chocolate chips (or dark)
1 cup butterscotch chips

Directions:

Measure out rice krispies into a large bowl.  In a small saucepan, stir peanut butter, sugar and Karo syrup over medium heat until smooth. 
Pour mixture over rice krispies, stir gently till all krispies are coated. 




Pour into a lightly greased 9x13 pan and press down with buttered hands to flatten it all out evenly. 

In a small glass bowl combine chocolate and butterscotch chips, microwave for aprox. 2 minutes, stirring halfway (Do not overcook- you only want them to melt.  Otherwise they will start to harden and crumble.) 

When chips have completely melted, pour over the rice krispie mixture, and spread out with a spatula. 




Once cooled, cut into servings and try to share with your friends.  If you end up eating the whole pan by yourself like I unfortunately have on many occasions, feel guilty about it for approx 4 minutes, forgive yourself and move on with your day.  :)



Last but not least I had to share the funniest video of my Trav.  I was choreographing the other day in our living room and he loves  to join me whenever I dance.  This particular one is a super fast jazz dance so it involved lots of turns and going to the ground.  Here is his version of the piece we choreographed together:

  1. My favorite part of this post was Travy! Way too cute. What a funny kid. I can't wait to see the dresser.

    ps - I like how you have your TV and stuff. It didn't look like that last time I came to your house (which was forever ago).
