WFMW- Mam's Chocolate Peanut Butter Rice Crispie Treats

Well it's theme time at WFMW and what a wonderful theme it is... CHOCOLATE! I love chocolate treats and the first one that came to mind was my mam's recipe. Oh the memories I have associated with these treats. Mom didn't want us to have them because of braces, but grandmas will be grandmas so we had them often. Anyway here's the recipe of the treat that is now a favorite of my boys!

Mam's Chocolate Peanut Butter Rice Crispie Treats

1 stick butter
8 cups (approximately 1 package) mini marshmellows
1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
1 cup peanut butter chips
6 cups rice crispie cereal (I get bulk crispie rice from Winco and it works just like the real stuff)

1. Grease a 13x9 inch rectangular pan (I use the butter wrapper to grease the pan. It was a tip from Stephanie.) and measure out all of the ingredients. You will not have time for measuring once you start cooking!

2. Melt butter in a large stock pan over medium heat
3. When butter is melted add marshmellows and stir constantly until melted

4. Add chocolate and peanut butter chips, stir until melted

5. Once everything is mixed together add cereal. You must mix quickly to get all of the cereal coated.

6. Pour mixture into the prepared pan. Push it down into the pan with your hand. I get my hand wet to keep it cool and from getting sticky.

7. Put in the refrigerator for as long as you can stand it (In my house we hold out about 30 minutes max!)

8. Cut into squares and savor the sweetness!

I hope you all enjoy this treat! We sure do!

P.S. A special thank you to my future cinematographer, L, for taking a couple of the pictures for me!
