Reese's Peanut Butter Cup Rice Krispie Treats Dupe

Here's a recipe I made my own, I got it from www.picky-palate.com
Here are the ingredients everything except butter is shown.
Follow the directions for making Rice Krispy treats, should be on the back of the Rice Krispies box or at www.Kelloggs.com click on recipes and type in Rice Krispies treats.
In medium saucepan scoop one can peanut butter, melt on low to medium heat, keep low and consistent as not to burn the peanut butter.


In second pan add marshmallows and butter, make sure you stir this constantly til melted, as not to burn the marshmallows.
 
make sure everything is melted all at the same time, while they are melting chop up one, 8 cup package of reese's peanut butter cups into meltable pieces and add to peanut butter.
The marshmallowy goodness trapping the Rice Krispies, dare I share these!

Spreading on the Peanut Butter goodness.

Before I stuck it in the fridge I added another 8 package of Reese's Peanut Butter Cups cut up.

After they solidified in the fridge for about an hour. I cut a couple of pieces for the fam.


The reviews are in!!
Husband: Tasty and good, but overall should be thinner with more marshmallow in the Krispies.
Daughter (7 yrs. old): Doesn't like peanut butter that much so I had to cut the top off, overall she says they were good.
Teen son: Don't change a thing, like them just the way they are.
Son (10 yrs. old): Loves them, make them again that way.
Youngest son (5 yrs. old): Ate it all and requested more, likes them alot.
Me: Hard from the fridge, if they were warm they would be easier to eat, too much Peanut Butter for my taste, but they did taste yummy, need to be half their size for biting into. I am my own worst critic, but hey at least I am honest. Overall this was fun!
I think for next time though I am going to drizzle chocolate and peanut butter over the Rice Krispies treats and  see how that goes. Hope you try them out yourself and Enjoy! Bon Appetit!
