That Niggling Thing

You that feeling when you get something in your head and you just can't shake the idea? Last week I was looking at some of Woolgirl's recent posts, I came across this ode to peanut butter cups. About half way down there is a picture of peanut butter cup rice crispy treats - and I was a goner.

I emailed her and asked her if she had a recipe - but she didn't. I emailed her page to my friends and asked how they thought it was made, and the consensus was that it was just two layers of rice crispy treats with peanut butter cups in the middle. Willow and I went to Target, found some discounted Batman peanut butter cups (Andrew said he was unsure why they were discounted when the movie hasn't even come out yet but I am not going to quibble on $1.40 for a bag of peanut butter cups) - and here you go:



Admittedly not nearly as pretty as the ones on Woolgirl's blog, but I am sure just as yummy.



The funny thing is it has been forever since I had made any sort of rice crispy treat - I had forgotten how insidiously sticky the cooling marshmallows can be... so there was a stream of expletives that came out with the making of this treat. I don't know if it is good or bad thing that Willow took it all in stride...

I have found that expletives often accompany exceptionally nummy foods. If they were easy, we’d make them all the time, and they wouldn’t be so exceptional.

MMM...very clever!

We just made scotcheroos, which are similar but not quite the same.

What do you mean, they don't look good? They look to die for, that's how good they look to me! My roommate and I used to make our own rice krispy treats when we were in college... it never occurred to us to stick a peanut butter cup in the middle!

Yummy! I've seen them done with the peanut butter cups melted on the top, too.
