Yummy little bites

Go ahead and get a cold glass of milk!

A'salaamu alaikum ya'll. Decided to try for a lighter and yummier post. My stepdaughters found this recipe in the Discovery Girls magazine and wanted to give it a go. I had to tweak it a little but the end results was sooo scrumptious! Really it reminds me of a reese's crisp bar. Totally worth the tiny effort it takes to make. :-D

First take:

4 tbsp butter, softened
1 cup powdered sugar

Cream these together. Actually it doesn't so much cream as kinda blend together. Next add:

1/2 cup peanut butter

Mix thoroughly and then mix in:

1 cup Rice Krispies/crisp rice cereal

Mix it gently so you don't squish all the little puffy bits. Roll into small balls then dip them in:

1 container chocolate frosting, heated til melted

Now 1 container was waaaay too much but then again, this recipe should really be doubled. I didn't want too much temptation so I made the smaller batch. Anyway you will have leftover frosting; make a cake or something!

Of course these can be decorated with a contrasting frosting drizzled on top or any other variations but we are pretty simple around here.

This is also a great thing to do with the kids or let them do alone (the older ones). However I have a kitchen control issue and I did it myself. I know, that's no fun, and I'm trying to lighten up. :-)

Alright, pop them in the fridge to harden faster and enjoy! Warning, these are pretty darn addictive so be ready to want to eat faaaar more than you, in good conscience, should. Yum Yum!

Of course, I could have spent my kitchen time more wisely by making, say, homemade garlicky tomato sauce but then my hands wouldn't smell like peanut butter!!! ;-)
