Ooooohhhhh these treats are so good! I figured someone must have tried using Reese Puffs in place of rice krispies to make a square so I searched Zaar and voila! I made just half of the recipe and used half margarine and half peanut butter. Then pressed into a greased 8 x 8 pan and drizzled with the chocolate. (I was too lazy to do the rolling in to balls part). Absolutely wonderful and I highly recommend them. Beats the old Rice Krispie version hands down. Next time I will know enough to make the whole recipe! Thx much Eat it up!
