Chocolate Peanut Butter Rice Krispies Treats

You know those recipes that you fall back on time and time again? For me, it's my Edamame Salad, Baked Ziti and Ham and Cheese Sandwiches, to name a few. Well, here's another. You just cannot beat a no-bake dessert that involves 5 ingredients and is done in 20 minutes. These Chocolate-Covered Peanut Butter Rice Krispies Treats are the perfect dessert to bring to gatherings. And the season for gatherings is now upon us!

It doesn't take much to spruce up the already-delicious Rice Krispies Bars, and you likely have all of the ingredients sitting in your pantry.

I love having a couple of eager taste-testers on hand at all times. They sure were happy to test this round of goodies!

I have a few of these left and one will be swimming in my belly shortly! After a healthy veggie-packed salad, of course. :)

Oh my goodness, the weekend is almost here! Have a great one, friends.
