I'm not sure if you remember the post before Christmas where I shared that sometimes, some recipes are better left unchanged? Sometimes you just need to leave well enough alone, and enjoy it guilt free--because some things are just worth the extra _____ (you can fill in the blank here-calories, time saved, ease, "bad stuff"...). Sometimes, you just gotta--cause you can't cut everything out. Some things invoke so many memories, some things just taste too good, some things are just worth the extra time spent together.
Here is what Madeleine and I made today--we have been enjoying them all afternoon.
(you probably already have this one, but just in case you don't...)
Peanut Butter Rice Krispie Treats
4 1/2 cups mini marshmallows
3 tbsp butter
6 cups rice krispies
3/4 cup peanut butter
Melt butter and marshmallows in a large pan. Add peanut butter, melt and mix thoroughly. Add rice krispies and mix until well combined. Put into a greased 9x13 pan, pressing into the pan until evenly distributed. Let sit until cooled. Cut into squares.
