I've never been a big fan of rice krispie treats, most likely due to a serious lack of chocolate. I guess I just didn't see the point.
Then I realized you could make them out of the cocoa flavored rice krispies, and the light came on. I added a spoonful of peanut butter to the mix to get two of my favorite flavors hanging out together in one sticky, gooey mix, and now I'm a convert.
Here is the recipe from the Kellogg's site
3 tbsp butter or margarine
4 cups mini marshmallows
6 cups Cocoa Krispies
Melt butter over medium heat. Add marshmallows (and large spoonful of PB at this point if you're going that route) and stir until all melted. Add in cocoa krispies and stir until all cereal is coated.
Pour into 13x9 baking pan that has been sprayed with non-stick spray, and press to spread evenly in pan.
Devour before children get home from school.
Now for my announcement. I've decided since there are so many awesome foodbloggers out there that I admire and drool over, I'm going to interview one blogger a month in a feature that will be called....
So when you see this banner, it means that it's time to learn the inner workings of the complex brain that belongs to the featured blogger.
Or at least it's time for some patient person to answer my silly food-related questions. Either way I hope it will be fun, and a nice way to shine the spot light on some wonderful cooks and all around nice folks out there.
