Reese's Rice Krispie Treats

My husband's favorite treat is Reese's chocolates. They are also a close second to my favorite treat, which is white chocolate. Although, my husband cannot stand white chocolate. He claims to be allergic to it but I am not convinced - I do think it is too sweet for him (a concept I just cannot understand) but I highly doubt he is allergic since he has eaten white chocolate without knowing it (ie: Rachel's delicious Orange Creamsicle Cheesecake) and he was totally fine and he LOVED the cheesecake!  

Back to the point, I knew I couldn't make white chocolate Rice Krispie treats and so I went with Reese's Rice Krispie treats and I am so glad I did - they turned out delicious!  

The recipe for these yummy treats is below. I like my Rice Krispie treats to be gooey with marshmallows so I used 5 1/2 cups Rice Krispies, but if you like them to be a little harder I would add some more Rice Krispies.  

REESE’S RICE KRISPIE TREATS

  2. Add the marshmallows once the butter is melted and melt the marshmallows
  3. Once the marshmallows are melted add the Rice Krispie cereal and mix together.
  4. Take the saucepan off the heat and add the mini Reese’s peanut butter cups.
  5. Spray Pam on wax paper and put a piece of wax paper in a 9 x 13 pan. Spray the spoon with Pam as well and spread the Rice Krispie treats in the pan. Spray another piece of wax paper with Pam and cover the Rice Krispies with it – press down with your hands to flatten out the Rice Krispie treats. Remove the top wax paper piece and let the Rice Krispie treats cool.
