Peanut Butter Rice Krispie Treats..An Early Venture

These don't look as good as they taste and what I love about these is that they are so forgiving. I got the idea from Ellie Krieger (Food Network Foods That You Crave). I saw her make something like these and I didn't write the recipe down. Now Ellie is a nutritionist and works so hard to make healthy, delicious food. She did not intend her good wholesome snack to be turned into the evil that I concocted. I am sorry Ellie. So here it is....

Again I don't measure.

Dump about a jar of peanut butter and small bottle of honey into a huge pot. Heat the mixture on a medium heat; you don't want it to heat too quickly because it could burn the mixture. Once it gets nice and hot (and you will know this because the mixture will thin out), pour in a box of Rice Krispies. Take the pot off the heat. Mix in the cereal, then mix in a bag of Reese's Pieces. Transfer to a casserole dish and chill in the fridge. Let the treats get hard. Cut and eat.

Here is a recipe I found online that is similar and much more specific
These things are like a dessert meatloaf...throw in a bunch of crap and it tastes good. Please share variations.
