Peanut Butter Cup Topped Rice Krispie Treats

I did not make these bars, my father did.
I gave him the recipe and told him to make them.
So that counts for something, right?
And, I did photography them.
And, I ate them.   (Lots of them.)

  1. I seriously don't know why I bookmark peanut butter recipes at the rate I do, (because I can't prepare them often-peanut allergies in all of my 4 kids) but I do [bookmark them like my life depends on it] May it's because I'm a secret government agent and this is how they keep track of me? In case you care to know, this recipe and your cranberry white chocolate chip rice Krispie Bars, just got bookmarked and put in my collections of PB recipes...the later got put in the...I think I'm making these this week, collection. :)

  6. wow those look incredible! i bet the rice crispies add a great crunch to the pb and chocolate!

  7. I have made no less than 6 pans of these guys in the last two weeks! We took them to Teacher Appreciation week and the plate was cleaned darn fast. The first pan though, I made and then left on the counter while I ran an errand... came home and over half of it was gone and I hadn't taken a photo yet!! Darn teenagers.
    I love the swirls that your dad did in yours, mine didn't have that. Will have to incorporate next time!
