Peanut Butter Rice Crispy Treats

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Lori Lissa

This is an easy wonderfully tastey treat that is great for all occasions. This is my mother in law's recipe, that my sweet husband had as a child, and my children ask for also. I have also molded these in to little brains on Halloween.

I don't know what went wrong when I made this recipe but the taste is terrific. The bars I made came out very dense and they were hard to cut. I probably over-stirred the mixture and pressed down too hard when I was trying to even them out in the pan. I'm giving the recipe 5 stars for the taste! Thank you for posting this recipe.
