Peanut Butter Cup Rice Krispies Treats

Rice Krispie treats are always a hit!  And the addition of chocolate and peanut butter only makes them better.  I find that store brand Rice Krispies cereal tends to go soggy quickly, so this is one instance where I don’t mind paying extra for the name brand.

The easiest way to get your Rice Krispie mixture into the pan quickly is to spray your hands with non-stick cooking spray and press it in.  Just be careful, it can be hot!  I imagine you could sprinkle all kinds of chocolate candy on top of Rice Krispies treats.  This version didn’t last long at my house!
