Chocolate Peanut Butter Rice Krispie Treats

These are a fun and easy treat!  I just used the recipe on Kelloggs' website for the peanut butter rice krispie treats, cut them out and spread chocolate on top.  Yum!  :)  

Chocolate Peanut Butter Rice Krispie Treats:
3 T. Butter
1 bag of regular marshmallows
1/2 c. Peanut Butter
6 c. Rice Krispies
3-4 oz. Chocolate (Milk or Semi-Sweet work, just use what you like!)

My tip is to line the pan with foil and spray the foil with cooking spray. Then they will be easier to cut out later.  :) 
 1.  Make the Peanut Butter Rice Krispie Treats.  Melt the butter, then add the marshmallows and let them melt.  Once the mallows are all melted add the peanut butter and remove from heat and stir until it is melted.  Add in the rice krispies and make sure that they are all coated.  Then place the mixture in the greased (and preferably foiled) pan and spread out evenly. Like the pic above!
 2.  Let the treats cool in the fridge for about 20 minutes.  Then start cutting them out.  You can use any shape, but I just decided on a circle.
 3.  Keep cutting those little guys out, and you can either save the scraps or eat them along the way.  ;)
 4.  You'll get somewhere between 12 and 20 of these depending on the size of your cutter.
 5.  I melted just one ounce of chocolate at a time in the microwave, but feel free to do whatever you'd like.
 6.  Be sure to stir and smooth out the chocolate before you smear it on these little pucks of goodness!
 7.  Spread/Smear away!  You may want to leave some without chocolate for those who may not want it....but then again, who wouldn't?!?!  :)
Yum.  Yum.  Yum.  Yep, I already ate one of these as well as a lot of the scraps....oops....  :) Not bad manners.  Just good food!  ;)

Oh, and I ever used all natural peanut butter and these were still great!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  :)
