Come on you know you want one!!

Wanna be a hit at your next picnic? Want your kids to jump up and down and beg for one more? Want adoration as though you slaved over a hot stove all afternoon? Oh, and want a really easy recipe. Well then........here you go.


This is a recipe first introduced to me by my friend Tracy-the queen of the yummy simple recipe. It's quick, easy, and doesn't require turning your oven on!

Here's what you will need:
5 1/2 cups Rice Krispies
1 bag Marshmallows (make sure to sample a few first)
1/4 c. Peanut Butter
4 tbsp. butter
1 1/3 c. chocolate chips
3/4 c. peanut butter or butterscotch chips
(the original recipe calls for butterscotch, but me....well...I'm not so crazy about them...so I use peanut butter.)

Begin by putting your marshmallows and butter in a microwave safe bowl and melt.

While they are melting, line a jelly roll pan with wax paper, and GENEROUSLY spray with Pam. If you do not spray it.......well....it's not gonna go so good for you!

Here's your melted goo.

Now add the peanut butter.

Mix until you have peanut butter goo.

Add your cups of rice krispies and mix together.

Now dump them out onto your pan.

Take another small piece of wax paper and spray it with Pam. You will use this to press the mix down into the pan.

Flatten all the way down.

Take both kinds of chips and put them in the microwave.

You will end up with this melted chocolatey-peanut buttery mess.

Now spread that all over the pressed krispies.

Now you will need to roll it up like a jelly roll. I start with one side and tuck it closely on top, but then use the wax paper to guide and roll.

Your rolled version should look like this. Now you will need to put it in the refridgerator for a hour.

Take it out and sliced it into pieces.

Here is the final product all laid out. Now sample one or two before you go to the picnic....you know...just to be safe!!!
