OK, so I haven't even gotten to officially even eat one, but just going by the tasting, I'm already going to say these are hands down, the BEST rice crispy treats I've ever had! They are AMAZING!!!!!!
And, because of the lack of marshmallows, they were a lot less messy to make!
I went ahead and put in a 9x13 pan, so they are super thick...
If you've got a craving for chocolate and peanut butter, RUN to the kitchen and fix these! You won't be disappointed!
I modified this recipe from My Kitchen Cafe...
UPDATE: So I just ate one...and my predictions were right on! We all LOVED it! Definitely the best tasting rice crispy treats I've ever had!!!
