Rice Krispy Treats with Reeses Peanut Butter Cups -  #snack #kids


SO easy to make the kids can do it themselves, but still a family favorite.

There are probably thousands of variations floating around the interweb, but I have always enjoyed plain old original the most.

That may just have changed.


Peanut Butter cups in a Rice Kkrispy Treat  - heathersfrench #kids, #snacks


Sometime last week I saw these gorgeous treats on one of my favorite blogs.  Aren’t they gorgeous?  I’ve topped my krispy treats, and had a few different mix-ins but never stuffed them.

Stuffed is definitely the way to go, and first up were of course Reese’s peanut butter cups.

just a tip – unwrap the peanut butter cups before you start anything else…you’d be surprised how long that can take 🙂

If these don’t encourage the kids to get their homework done, I don’t know what will.
