    These were so good that I ate myself silly! The only problem that I did have with them is that the icing didn't come out with just 1 Tbsp of milk. I had to add about an additional 1/4 cup to the Tbsp because the icing was way too pasty and not spreadable BUT I didn't sift the powdered sugar either so that may have been why it turned out like that. I forgot to sift the powdered sugar because I was in a hurry to make them. Guess I need to pay a little better attention to what I am doing :) I will make this again and again. They were just absolutely wonderful. Thank you, Bev.

    The peanut butter krispies bars are so good alone like that, that we didn't need to do the icing. Thanks Bev. Made for Zaar Star Game.

    Yummy! these bars are just delicious Bev! I took Myth Thyng's advise and doubled the recipe, using a 13x9 inch baking pan...made as directed using butter. Left out the frosting, there just great without it. I gave some away to my DS, he loved them, and kept some for myself and Dh, we love peanut butter! Thanks for posting Bev, great bars!...Kitten:)

    This is indeed a kid friendly recipe, but don't let that stop you if there are no children at home. You may still need to use "mom" supervision in doling them out to adults. My husband has eaten almost all of these by himself...his willpower isn't so good, but these bars sure are!

    These are the perfect combination of crunchy and chewy. The caramel flavoured frosting goes well with the peanut butter. I made them with red and green Christmas rice krispies - they looked very nice. It is difficult to stop eating these, they are SO GOOD!
