Chocolate Peanut Butter Cereal Bars

Confession time.  Don't judge me, ok?

I can not make Rice Krispie Treats.  There...I said it!

My name is Kim, and I can not make Rice Krispie Treats!

Is there a group for that?  Where you stand up and make your confession...

:"Hi, My name is Kim......and I can not make Rice Krispie Treats."

"Hi Kim"

Ok...I don't know what the problem is.  They always come out either one of two ways...they are either
rock hard....or...they are so soft that you have to eat them with a spoon.

But never fear....I found a solution.  If you are like me and all "I can not make Rice Krispie Treats" like me.  I can hook you up.

I found this recipe in the Better Homes and Garden New Cook book that I got when I got married.  I am not sure why I have never found it before...but it is life changing.  Now I can make Krispie treats.  I changed it up a little and used Jiff Whipped Chocolate Peanut butter, but I am sure regular peanut butter would be great...or Nutella....or Biscoff....or maybe marshmallow cream...YUMMY!
