And my daughter's looking for a blouse.
I try to sing a happy tune,
But with way too little sleep,
zillions of cards to address and mail,
presents to buy, and floors to sweep
I think it's true that my brain needs a bail!
I guess I'll stop rambling and mention today's treat
which I do declare is really neat.
They're crispy and chock full of chocolate,
strewn with rice krispies, and a good bit of peanut butter.
My son's friends happen to eat quite a lot
And while they did munch they also did utter
that these Reese's Krispies were awesome
and they hoped they I would make them more instead of some possum.
Now I know that I am a horrible rhymer
and that I should stick to cooking instead
but the lack of sleep and the ding of the timer
just gave me the urge to rhyme instead of going to bed!

Holy moly! Chopped peanut butter cups are stirred right into the mixture!
Posted by Lara.
1 cup sugar
1 cup corn syrup
1-1/3 cups creamy peanut butter
4-1/4 cups Rice Krispies cereal
1 pinch of salt
4 Reese's peanut butter cups, chopped
1/3 cup semisweet chocolate chips
In a large sauce pan over medium heat, melt the sugar, corn syrup, and peanut butter until smooth and evenly combined. Remove from heat.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and drop rounded tablespoons onto the sheet OR with damp hands press the treats evenly covering the pan.
Allow to set for 3-4 minutes, then while the treats are still warm, cut out shapes using cookie cutter.
Place the cut treats on a wax or parchment paper lined baking sheet.
Recombine the remainder of the treats into the pan to be cut later.
