Chocolate Peanut Butter Krispy Treats (Secret Recipe Club)

Happy Monday!  Did you think I forgot about you this morning?  Have no fear - it's a later than normal post because once again, it's Secret Recipe Club reveal day!  Always a fun day of the month :)

My assigned blog this time around was This Chick Cooks.  Katie has some great stuff to choose from, with her recent recipes being more on the healthy side due to a lifestyle change she made.  A few that caught my eye were the Chick Pea Summer Salad and the Summer Squash Soup.  Yum!

But, even though I had a few of the "good" ones bookmarked, I ultimately went with a "bad" one ;)  It wasn't my fault!  Since I made the Baba Au Rhum for my brother-in-law's birthday, I had to come up with a kid-friendly dessert for the little ones...sooooo....

These delicious treats were enjoyed by all!  Thanks for a great recipe, Katie!

Chocolate Peanut Butter Krispy Treats
slightly adapted from This Chick Cooks

1 (10 ounce) bag mini marshmallows
6 cups crispy rice cereal
3 tablespoons butter
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
2 tablespoons half & half 

In a large bowl, melt butter and marshmallows in microwave for about 60-90 seconds.  Stir (spray spoon with cooking spray to avoid a sticky mess!) and pop in a little while longer if need be.  Add peanut butter and stir, then cereal, and stir until evenly distributed.  Pour and press into a greased 9x13 baking pan.

Put chocolate chips and half & half in a microwave safe bowl.  Cook for 30 seconds, stir, then cook another 15-30 seconds, until smooth.  Use a knife to drizzle chocolate over cereal.  Cut into bars and serve.
