Peanut Butter Snickers Rice Krispies Treats

May 13, 2013

I blame my sweet tooth on 2 people.

First: my mother. Growing up, every night, we had dessert after dinner. She baked nearly everyday of my childhood until she starting working. I was probably about 16 years old then. She always has  ice cream in the fridge and mini candy bars in her cookie jar on a regular basis.

The second: my husband.  He is a fanatical candy eater. He goes out to buy something for the car at Menard's (a home improvement store, if you don't have any in your area) and comes home, I kid you not with like 5 bags of candy. When questioned, he tells me that it was necessary  they were Easter candy at 50%.  Mmph..none of them looked Easter-like to me.  Nothing of the egg variety or in pink bags.

Of course, who cares, right?  I gobbled a good majority up quickly. OK! I take responsibility for my sweet tooth. But, only a little bit.

In this haul of candy was 2 bags of fun size Snickers Peanut Butter Squared. One bag was consumed lickity split.

With the other, I made these rice krispies treats. Some peanut butter, caramel and marshmallows. Yummy, seriously delicious. Mom will be so proud when she tastes them.  If a whole pan can be saved to make the trip to her house.

Enjoy :)

  1. Oh, boy. All I can say is thank goodness I don't live with a candy eater because I have very little willpower and my only hope is if there's nothing but veggies and fruit in the house. Of course, it's way more fun at your house than mine. :)

  2. ahhhhhhh too good!!!! Love love love the pb chocolatey goodness

  3. LOL..I have ZERO willpower when it comes to candy. My dear husband doesn't help me much with that either :)
