- As with any recipe, read through it first before beginning
- Also when you start, measure your ingredients out and have everything ready
- Turn your heat to medium versus on high temperature. It will take a little patience, but you’ll avoid scorching them on a lower heat.

- Work quickly after adding the Rice Krispies to mix everything together
- Press firmly and evenly in your pan to compact the mixture together
Chocolate Peanut Butter Rice Krispie Treats
- 6 cups Rice Krispies cereal
- 20 peanut butter cups cut into 4 pieces
- 5 tablespoons butter
- 4 tablespoons light colored corn syrup
- 10 ounce package plus 2 cups miniature marshmallows
- 1/3 cup peanut butter
- 1/2 cup chocolate chips or melting chocolate for drizzle
- In a large bowl combine the cereal and peanut butter cups.
- Spray a 9x13 inch pan with non-stick spray.
- In a large pot, melt butter over low heat.
- Add marshmallows and stir constantly until marshmallows are melted and mixture is smooth.
- Stir in syrup and peanut butter until well incorporated.
- Remove pot from heat and fold in cereal mixture until cereal is evenly coated. The peanut butter pieces will melt and fall apart somewhat. Be gently so there are some chunks of the peanut butter cups in the mixture.
- Press mixture into the sprayed 9x13 inch pan. Use your hands or a large bottomed glass to smooth the top completely. Press firmly to compact so the bars will stick together. Set aside.
- In a zip-top bag, add 1/2 cup chocolate chips and microwave at 30 seconds intervals until melted.
- Snip corner off zip-top bag and drizzle over bars in a decorative pattern.
- Allow bars to sit 30 to 45 minutes to allow the chocolate cool and harden.

It seems there are tons of cute ideas for little kids, boys and girls alike, to give as party favors. As boys get older, I’ve found it increasingly difficult to choose party favors. I wanted to share this post Birthday Party Favor Gift Idea that is great for boys or girls over 10 years old.
What’s in my party favors? Soda pop is a classic and usually enjoyed by all. Boys of all ages loves things that pop and explode so I found these little Pop-Its. Remember them? They pop when you throw them on the ground. Heck, I even like them! Then of course I added candy and a chocolate bar. After all, these are party favors, they won’t be jacked up on caffeine and sugar, just make sure you give them to the boys as they’re leaving your house!
