recipe of the day

Sunday was Resse's baby blessing 
so I offered to bring treats to the luncheon.
I wanted something fun and yummy that used Reese's.

Of course I looked to Pinterest to supply me some options.
I chose Reese's Chocolate Peanut Butter Rice Krispie Treats
from Key Ingredients.

Seriously, a really good decision.

Try these, you won't regret it.
I used a little less marshmallows 
because I forgot to factor in the +2 cups when I grocery shopped
but they were so yummy and plenty gooey.
I also sprinkled some chopped Reese's on top.



6              cups Cocoa Krispies Cereal
16-18     Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, diced
5              Tbs butter or margarine
3              Tbs light karo syrup
1              (10 ounce) package plus 2 heaping cups miniature marshmallows
            cup peanut butter
½             cup chocolate chips


In a large bowl, combine cereal and diced Reese's. Set aside. Spray a 9 x 13 in. pan with cooking spray and set aside. 

In a large pot melt butter over low heat. Add karo syrup and marshmallows and stir continuously until mixture is smooth. Remove from heat and add cereal mixture into the pot and fold together just until cereal is evenly coated. (Peanut butter cup pieces will fall apart as you fold together your ingredients, so don't over mix this.) Press mixture into the sprayed 9 x 13 in. pan. Set aside. 

In a small microwave safe bowl, add peanut butter. Microwave for 30 second to a minute to melt. Set aside to let cool slightly. In a separate small microwave safe bowl, melt chocolate at 30 second intervals, stir between intervals, until smooth. Set aside to let cool slightly. 

When peanut butter is cool enough to handle, transfer into a small zip lock bag. Clip a small piece out of the corner and pipe onto rice krispie treats, zig-zagging back and forth. Repeat steps with chocolate, placing in a small zip lock bag, and piping over the peanut butter. 

Cool, cut and serve. 

Makes a 9 x 13 in. sheet of treats.

I of course doubled it and filled a cookie sheet.
