My mother was making these treats 40 years ago for her kids. My college age nephew asked me to make a batch for him yesterday and they are so easy and fast to make. Much less time consuming than a batch of cookies. And yummy too.

Measure out the Rice Krispies in a large bowl (I use the largest I can set my hands on).
Combine brown sugar and corn syrup in small saucepan and cook on medium heat until mixture begins to bubble on top.
Take off heat and stir in the peanut butter.
Add mixture to Rice Krispies and stir until all the Krispies are coated, then pour into 9x11 or 9x13 baking dish. Smooth over with a spatula, let set for an hour or so and tada! (You might run a knife through warm water to help cut nice, clean squares).
