Chocolate Peanut Butter Crispy Bars. The name says it all. Bite into a chewy, crispy bar that’s loaded with peanut butter and nestled under a dreamy layer of chocolate. Easy, make-ahead recipe.
We celebrate a Little’s birthday every other month, from February through June.
Tomorrow is the Biggest Little’s big 12. Despite the middle school status and tween label, those guys are still into sharing birthday treats at school.
Come to think of it, that never really stops. Grownups are totally enamored with birthday treats at work, too. You know if you bring cupcakes to work, they’ll be snatched up before lunch break. Free food in the lounge = fair game.
This year, rice crispy treats have been the forerunner at school. Sans peanut butter, because it’s the twenty-tens and everyone knows The Peanut is not a welcome guest in the classroom. Neither is anything homemade. So store-bought rice crispy treats in the blue box, it is.
At home…well, that’s a different story altogether…
It’s okay that PB is out at school. Because there’s after school. Before school. You get the gist.
At home, we can dig into all that ridiculously tempting, creamy peanut butter. Mixed with dreamy chocolate.
And dig in, we do.
Chocolate Peanut Butter Crispy Bars are loaded with crispy rice cereal and creamy peanut butter. The texture is given a slight chewiness from pure honey.
Pack in the chocolate chips and peanut butter chips. You already know it’s gonna be irresistible, so we could stop here.
But we won’t. Because we must toss on those peanut butter cups.
Go big or go home, right? 🙂
Here’s to all the tweens who still give out birthday treats at school.
And plenty of peanut butter to come home to.
