Good Friday morning! I started writing this post three days ago … don’t know what happened, but I lost everything! It’s OK because I rewrote it over and over again in my head … several times. I would ask myself should I share or just post the recipe? I decided to do both.
I finally figured out that I’m in a slump and need to SNAP OUT OF IT! I’m not in a rut … my rut or routine has been changed … I think that’s my problem.
Several changes have taken place around here, some good and some not so good. My hubby recently lost his oldest brother, whom he would visit twice a week, after a long battle with Parkinson’s Disease. Our 14-year-old puppy, a.k.a. my hubby’s daughter and my pretty girl, had been ill for several months and we lost her Monday. On a good note … we are back in home improvement mode … we are slooooow home improvers … finally finishing a master bathroom that has been six years in the making (loooong story). We have had a nice time visiting with family from out-of-town that we don’t get to see often enough.
We have a few short trips planned, including one to Laughlin, Nevada.
Have you ever been to Laughlin? I was trying to describe it to my niece (who has been to Las Vegas) I basically told her it’s like old old Las Vegas on a mini scale and located on the Colorado River. My hubby likes Laughlin because the gambling is
cheaper less expensive than Las Vegas. Now, please don’t laugh at me … the real reason I agreed to go to Laughlin, because I’m not a gambler … is that we will make a short drive to Kingman, Arizona and have breakfast at Cracker Barrel and maybe buy a new cast iron skillet ;) I live in California …. there is no Cracker Barrel in California!!! We Californians are Cracker Barrel deprived! It may sound silly to some of you, but I don’t understand when some people who I know come for a visit to California and must go to In-N-Out-Burger! Don’t get me wrong, I like In-N-Out Burger, but I think that being deprived … makes it seem even better … just like me and Cracker Barrel :)
Now that I’m finished rambling … these bars are my idea of gambling. You may get one or two peanut butter cups on a bar or hit a jackpot and get four cups …
Reese’s PB Cup and Chocolate Rice Krispie Treat Bars
- 1/2 cup butter (1 stick)
- 10 ounce bag marshmallows
- 6 ounces of chocolate marshmallows (4 cups)
- 8 ounce bag Reese’s Minis
- 9 cups Rice Krispies (crisp rice cereal)
- Grease a 9″ x 13″ pan and a spatula with butter or cooking spray, set aside.
- In a large pot (6 quart) melt butter over low heat.
- Add marshmallows and stir until melted.
- Remove pan from heat, add Rice Krispies, stir until coated. Immediately pour 1/2 of mixture into prepared pan, sprinkle candy evenly, add remaining cereal mixture. Use prepared spatula to press into pan.
- Let cool and cut into bars.
Good luck … I hope you pick a winning bar and hit the jackpot!
