Peanut Butter Rice Krispie Treats

May is CRAZY!  School ends here in less than 2 weeks and it seems like we are involved in non-stop programs and activities. My baby is graduating from Pre-School (which is sad…but not too sad.  She missed the school deadline so she will be back in Pre-School next year.  Which means I get one more year before I have to send her off to school with the big kids…sniff!)

For her graduation I signed up to bring some treats. I dug through my old recipes and decided to whip up some Peanut Butter Rice Krispie Treats also known as Scotcheroos.  These are so yummy.  They also have Butterscotch and Chocolate in them!

It is a good thing I gave most of them away.  These things are not good for you at all…but then again…they are TREATS!

Want the recipe?  I thought you might.

Peanut Butter Rice Krispie Treats

Rice Krispie Bar—Halloween Ghosts

Do you still need a quick and easy Halloween treat for a classroom party or to give out to your friends and family? Whip up some of these super easy and super adorable Rice Krispie Bar Treats in the shapes of Halloween Ghosts.  A fun and easy twist on the ever popular Rice Krispie Treats. And…it’s on a stick!! You know how much I love that!

Halloween-Snacks

Now, I wish I could take credit for these cute treats…but I can’t.  My super creative neighbor (you know who you are Smile) is my daughter’s church activity day leader and she made these for a fun Father and Daughter Halloween Party earlier this week.  Luckily I have trained my family well enough to know they can NOT eat the treats until mom gets a picture of it…sad but true!

Halloween-Party-Treats

To make them you will just need to whip up a batch of Rice Krispie Treats.  The recipe is on the back of the box of Rice Krispies.  Or you can find the original recipe for Rice Krispie Treats on Rice Krispies.com.  Spread them out into a jelly roll pan so they are fairly flat.  You will also be able to get more ghosts this way.  Take a cookie cutter shaped like a tombstone and cut out the ghosts as close to one another as possible when the Rice Krispies have cooled a bit but are not hard.  Transfer each ghost to wax paper and insert a sucker stick into the bottom of the ghost.  Let them fully harden.

Then dip the tops of each ghost into some melted white chocolate or almond bark and add a couple of mini chocolate chips for the eyes.  Let the chocolate harden before wrapping up or serving.  Aren’t they so much fun?  Go ahead and make some for yourself.  I think I found the perfect treat to take to my son’s class for his birthday treat next week!

Thanks H!!
