Butterscotch Peanut Butter Rice Krispies Treats

April 16, 2012

So last night I went in the pantry to get some tea and as I was coming out, I saw a huge spider in the middle of the doorway, just staring at me. In case you didn’t know, I HATE SPIDERS (don’t judge me, you know deep down inside that you hate them too!!!)

So, being the reasonable person that I am, I decided to evaluate the situation and find a way around it!

NOT!

I stayed in the pantry for about 5 minutes until IT decided to walk away, probably laughing at me histerically…

If you must know, I waited until Karl got home and asked him to take care of the spider situation….because even though I hate them, I can’t kill them…..go figure!

The positive side to this very shameful story is that while I was stuck in the pantry, I saw that we had Marshmallows!

I used to love when my mom would make Rice Krispie Squares when I was a kid! That’s why, when I saw that I had some marshmallows in the pantry, I decided to make something like Rice Krispies squares, but with some extra flavors!

Rice Krispie Butterscotch

If you are like me, you think Rice Krispies do not taste like anything…

BUT!

I have to say that mixed into desserts, they add some awesome crunchiness!

    I just made this, and I hate to say I didn’t love it. Flavor was ok, but it was dry and fell apart.
