Peanut Butter Fudge Krispies
If you have been following me for any amount of time, then you know I don't do complicated, over-involved recipes; the more simple it is, the more I like it - brownie points if it uses less than five ingredients. So when I was trying to figure out what treat to make yesterday, my mom's Fudge Krispy recipe stood out since it is so easy to make. But I wanted to spice it up a bit, so I decided to experiment by adding some peanut butter; and holy deliciousness - it was amazing, if I do say so myself! It was so rich and fudgy and peanut-buttery, and they just melted in our mouths. And the best part about these bad boys - they only take about five minutes to make!
The other best part - my mom called right as I started to make them and thank goodness she did because I had written the recipe wrong and instead of 'mix', I wrote 'milk.' I had made these a while ago and had no idea how much milk to add so I just splashed some in and it turned out really soggy; so I asked her (smugly, thinking she was the one that made the mistake by not writing the amount down in the first place) how much it was supposed to be and then realized my (obvious) mistake as she read the recipe to me . . . just another blonde moment to add to the books!
- 12oz chocolate chips (2 cups)
- 1/2 cup margarine
- 1/2 cup light corn syrup
- 2 teaspoons vanilla
- 1 cup powdered sugar
- 4 cups Rice Krispies (or other rice cereal)
- Combine chocolate, margarine and corn syrup in a pan and stir over low heat until smooth, remove from heat. Stir in vanilla and sugar, then add the cereal and mix. Spread in greased 9x13 pan and chill till firm. Store in fridge.
** For Peanut Butter Fudge Krispies, add 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter and 1/2 cup Reese's peanut butter chips (or just 1 cup of PB and no PB chips), then for some extra sinfulness, right before you pour the mix into the 9x13 pan, add a handful each of chocolate chips and peanut butter chips. And for extra, extra sinfulness, sprinkle more chips on top!!
