So the other day my girls REALLY wanted a treat. I was in a hurry to do whatever I was trying to get done that day, but wanted to make them a treat too. So this is what we came up with. Rice krispy treats are always a family favorite and a quickie, but I really didn't want those. So I started to melt the marshmallows like usual and then decided to change it up a bit. Here is what I did.
Chocolate Marshmallow and Peanut Butter Rice Krispy Treats:6 cups rice krispys
1 bag mini marshmallows (you can use the larger but the minis seem to melt lots better)
1/2 bag chocolate chips
1/2 cup peanut butter (you can omit this if you want)
Melt the marshmallows, chocolate chips and peanut butter together. I melted the marshmallows a little bit before I added the chocolate chips so they wouldn't burn. Then stir in the rice krispy's . Easy peasy and it only took me 5 minutes. The girls were happy and so was I!
