Reese’s PB Cup & Chocolate Rice Krispie Treats

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.

Jackpot Bars

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 …
