I'm kind of excited that my day to post happens to be on Friday! It's kind of like I get to send you off into the weekend!
So a little fact about me... I am really not a cook. I really do wish I loved to cook (since I have to make dinner every night regardless) but it really just feels like a chore to me. Baking however, now that I like to do! And the best part is, my 3 year old son loves to make treats with me! I have been promising him all day that we could make Rice Crispy treats together so I thought I would share it with you. Another fact about me: My weekness (besides cookies & coffee), is anything with peanut butter and chocolate! So our Rice Crispies naturally had to be of the PB&C variety!
*Since I am not a natural cook I depend on pictures with recipes to make sure I'm somewhat on track so I'll include mine!
6 T unsalted butter
7 C mini marshmallows
1 C creamy peanut butter
6 C Rice Crispy cereal
1 heaping C chocolate chips (you can use more, that's all I had!)
Melt butter and marshmallows on the stove over medium heat stirring frequently
Once marshmallows are mostly melted, stir in your peanut butter
Confession - I could have stopped at this point and just eaten the mixture out of the pot...
it looked a-mazing!!
Stir in the Rice Crispies and chocolate chips
Spread the mixture into a greased 9x13 baking pan
Step 5 - Enjoy!
