Peanut Butter Rice Krispie Squares

Do you have any leftover chocolate Easter eggs lying around your house?  You probably don’t, but I did, so I decided to get down to business. Even if you don’t have any chocolate eggs, don’t let this stray you away from making some peanut butter Rice Krispie squares today! Simply  substitute the eggs for some chopped milk chocolate or even melted chocolate drizzled over top. These bars are simple, easy, fast, and very delicious. Just picture yourself on the front porch, Tilley hat on, house coat hugging you from every side, steaming cup of Brazilian coffee in front of you, and the sound of a peanut butter Rice Krispie square crunching in your mouth. Sound good to you? Then get off your butt and mix em’ up!
