peanut butter rice crispy treats
4 cups puffed rice cereal
1 stick butter
1 package mini marshmallows
1/2 cup chunky peanut butter
melt butter over low heat, add marshmallows and peanut butter to get a smooth mixture.
Add rice cereal, mixing quickly and scooping up from the bottom to make sure that you get an even mix.
Pour into a 9x12 baking dish - and here is my secret - wet your hands, then press the treats down.
I like my treats dense, so I really make sure they are evenly spread and mushed well into the pan,
When cool, cut and enjoy!
