Tuesdays At The Table - Peanut Butter Rice Crispy Treats

Happy Tuesday, ladies!  Did everyone have Monday off?  I hope so - almost everyone I've come across stayed up late to watch the Golden Globes!

Ladies, I'm going to be honest...I'm cheating this week.  Instead of a new recipe, I'm sharing (or re-sharing) my favorite rice crispy treat recipe.  It was the first recipe I ever shared - so a good portion of you have never seen it.  Plus, I'm sick and just thinking about food at the moment brings on a new wave of nausea.

Lovely Yellow Ribbons


Peanut Butter Rice Crispy Treats

1 package Butterscotch chips (11.75 oz, I believe)
1 heaping cup of Peanut Butter (your choice!)
6 cups Rice Crispies

In a microwave safe bowl, slowly melt your butterscotch chips. Once nice and melted (no bumps), mix in your peanut butter.

Then slowly add your rice crispies. Your last addition will mean a little bit of a work out.  Turn out into a lightly greased 9x11 pan and refrigerate for an hour or until set.

Cut into bars and enjoy!

*Note: While you may be tempted to use low-fat peanut butter... I advise against it. The consistency changes. Use the good stuff and ENJOY!*

What's cooking in your kitchen?

  4. Hi Cole! Today I am sharing my recipe for Meyer Lemon Cookies. This recipe is gluten free, but can be made with "regular" flour if you don't have an issue with gluten.
    I am starting a giveaway this week on my recipe blog for a 7 pound box of Organic Meyer Lemons that come from a small farm on the Central Coast of California. I am going to research and look for a bunch of recipes with Meyer lemons on other blogs and I will include those links on my giveaway post for the lemons.
    Have a great week! Thanks for hosting!

  14. Sometimes our "old" recipes are our best... It's always fun to pull out a tried and true recipe! Food, at least for me, tends to bring back memories of times we've shared a meal (or snack, or dessert...) with a friend, loved one, or someone who was in need. Blessings and hope you're feeling better soon. :)

  15. you know, rice crispy treats are just one thing I'd rather buy than make. primarily because of the mess! I hate things that are difficult to stir. :) I'm lazy like that.

  20. cole baby, I hope you are feeling better and your little meadow is ok too! Sharing older posts and recipes is just fine because to ME, it is new! My kids adore RCT and with peanutbutter instead of marshmallow i can only image how good they are! I am linking up a guest blog post this week, you see, my kids and their cousin cooked me french toast from scratch without a recipe this long weekend, so I made them blog about it! All the best, alex

  23. Love the switch from the original to the butterscotch and PB. I hated the original (too gooey), this is a must try for me.
