Over the weekend, I wanted to make a yummy Valentine’s Day treat. I wasn’t sure what I wanted to make, but my friend gave me a recipe for these very special rice krispie treats stuffed with Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups and drizzled with chocolate.
Rice Krispie treats are one of recipes I love making when I’m on a time crunch or not in the mood to take out all the measuring cups. The recipe is very customizable and you can use a variety of ingredients. In the past, I’ve made mint chocolate krispies. I’ve even experimented with browned butter. I’ve decorated with sprinkles for sugary crunch and even replaced the krispies with Fruity Pebbles, which is a sugar bomb FYI.
But peanut butter and chocolate krispies is something I’ve never made and this recipe is sweet, salty, crispy, and decadent. Each piece of Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup you get is so rich while set against the crispy rice.
On top of that, this is one of my first dessert recipes I used from social media. I’ve tried recipes from influencer chefs before, but never a dessert. I’m glad I picked this one because some of these dessert hacks make me wonder if it’ll actually taste good. This, my friends, actually tastes good. Coupled with a little afternoon oolong and a good book and you’ll find yourself eating way more than you should have eaten.
