Chocolate Peanut Butter Crunch Krispie Treats Recipe

Peanut Butter and Chocolate.  What two things go together as deliciously as those?

I wanted to try out a different version of rice krispie treats recipe and chocolate and peanut butter just sounded good.  The girls thought so, too, so I just had to do it.

We’ve also been snowed in for a week.  All of the kids have been home for an extra week from school, so as you can imagine, the house is a mess, there’s more laundry, more dishes and well, I just had to make a treat after surviving this week.

So, here you go.

My girls added the white pearls and pink sprinkles on it, but you can’t see the pink sprinkles very well in the photo. They kind of sunk down into the chocolate.

Did you get a ton of snow this past week?  Did it keep your kids home longer than usual?
