Peanut Butter Rice Krispie Bars

If you spend any time on Facebook or Pinterest, you will see all of the adorable, crafty fall treats that are everywhere. Does anyone else feel inadequate by those? I am NOT a crafty person. Try as I might, crafty is not for me. I have a friend who goes to Michael’s to RELAX! The amount of stuff in that store nearly gives me a panic attack. I have come to accept the fact that crafts and I do not mesh. So I share other people’s cute, crafty snacks and stick to what I’m good at. And I have to admit, I am an absolute sucker for these Peanut Butter Rice Krispie Bars.

Many desserts in our house are never quite finished (odd, I know), but these Peanut Butter Rice Krispie Bars always disappear. And they are gone way before I am ready for them to be. Creamy marshmallow, ooey gooey peanut butter with candy corn and Reese’s Pieces – what’s not to love? (Look at me getting all crafty and seasonal! Seriously folks, this is as crafty as it gets, and I’m good with that.) They are a fabulous Halloween treat and so easy to mix up. Melt some chocolate chips and drizzle across the top, and – ooh, la, la – I’m in peanut butter and chocolate heaven.
