Rice Crispy Treats

My cousin brought this super yummy dessert to our Cousins Reunion and I fell in love with them all over again. I don't make these very often because they are HIGHLY addictive, so I save them for camping. Then I had to make them the other day for a potluck and I realized that I have never posted this delectable recipe. This one is too good to keep a secret, so here it is.
Rice Crispy Treats

What you'll need:
1 c. Karo Syrup
1 c. sugar
1 c. Peanut Butter
8 c. Rice Crispies
1 bag chocolate chips
Bring the Karo syrup and sugar to a boil in a heavy sauce pan on the stove top. Remove from heat and mix in PB until smooth. Pour rice crispies into a large bowl and pour PB mixture over top. Mix well.
Press into 9x13 pan until compact.

Melt chocolate chips in microwave until smooth and spread on top of treats. I have also spread the chocolate chips on top of treats and placed them in a 200 degree oven for 5 minutes. Remove and spread chocolate with a spatula.

Place in fridge until cool and chocolate is hard. Cut into squares and try not to eat the whole pan yourself. Good luck with that one!

These are addicting. I have some on my blog with butterscotch chips added to the chocolate chips. So amazing!

I do love rice crispy treats, but I have yet to have them that dolled up! Yum. I am definitely making these for my family.

PS.. I wanted to add that it is refreshing to see another mama taking advantage of the store brands. I AM A STORE BRAND GIRL & PROUD OF IT!
