Second month doing a recipe for Secret Recipe Club, and this month, I got another fantastic food blog this week: Cook Lisa Cook. I have spent the past couple of days just marveling over all of the wonderful recipes that I want to try, that I have bookmarked a couple to make at a later date.
Summer break will be more busy than I thought.
But even with all of the delicious recipes to choose from, I had very few ingredients in my house. And since I was going away on vacation a couple of days later, I was really reluctant to buy anything.
So I made a wayy more boring version of the Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Rice Krispie Treats with Vanilla Coconut Frosting that I found on this “secret recipe” blog. I left out the best part: frosting! Boo for empty cupboards..
But even though I made the recipe so plain that I took the fun out of it, this recipe did teach me some things:
- I can make regular Rice Krispie Squares in the microwave, and NOT on the stove like I did here.
- Peanut butter makes Rice Krispie Squares 10x better, and oh so chewy delicious. Why have I not done this before??
Peanut Butter Rice Krispies Squares come together in under 5 minutes for a great tasting no bake treat! A quick and easy recipe.
- 3 Tbsp salted butter
- 10 oz mini marshmallow
- 1 cup creamy peanut butter
- 5 1/2 cups Rice Krispies cereal
Lightly grease an 8×8 baking pan. Set aside.
Place the butter and marshmallows in a large microwave safe bowl, and microwave for 2 minutes.
Stir in the peanut butter, and microwave for an additional 30-40 seconds, and stir until smooth.
Mix in the Rice Krispies cereal until fully combined.
Press the Rice Krispie mixture into the prepared pan, and allow to cool. Cut into squares.
