This post is a repost from last year, but seeing as how this recipe, no matter what I do this recipe remains number one, I thought it would be a good idea to bring it back to life. I’ve left the original post on here, but I did add updates to the recipe as we make it a little different these days.
Who has left over Halloween candy?! I know I do. I was trying to think up a delicious way to enjoy all of that candy other than just eating piece by piece and I came up with these. Oh! I think I forgot to even tell you about Halloween!
Ok, first of all, our sweet Claire had just healed from Croup. And a bad version of it. She’s only 16 lbs so to be hit with an extremely bad strain of croup was a big deal. By Halloween it was just a bad cold, so all of the scary not breathing, or troubled breathing had thankfully ended. Two steroids is what it took and I pray it doesn’t ever happen again. Croup is quite honestly one of the worst things ever. Anyway, last year I had wanted to dress our oldest up as Rainbow Brite, but I am sooooo glad I waited until this year. Aren’t they darling?!
- 1 Cup Sugar
- 1 Cup Corn Syrup
- 1 1/3 Cup Creamy Peanut Butter
- 4 1/4 Cup Rice Krispies
- 1 Pinch of Salt
- 4 Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, chopped (we use 6)
- 1 Handful Chocolate Chips (we use 1/2 cup)
- In a large sauce pan over medium heat, melt the sugar, corn syrup, and peanut butter until smooth and evenly combined.
- Remove from heat.
- Quickly add the salt and cereal and stir to combine thoroughly. Add the chocolate chips and stir again. Wait about 1 min and add the candy, quickly folding the mixture together so as to not smash up the candy.
- Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and drop rounded tablespoons onto the sheet. Let cool and devour!
