Peanut Butter Rice Krispie Squares

You are going to love these peanut butter rice krispie squares because they are so quick and easy to whip up. These treats are so gooey and chewy – those 12 extra marshmallow do the trick perfectly. And if you like peanut butter, even just a little bit, you’ll love these. They have the perfect amount of peanut butter, enough to taste it, but not enough it masks the taste of the marshmallows.  These squares are a little thicker than some other squares. If you want to make then a little thinner, just grease an extra pan – an 8×8 works perfect – and press the remaining mixture into the second pan. I like to store mine in an air tight container in the fridge, it makes them a little crunchier but still gooey. They are addicting and once you have one bite I think you’ll agree why!
