I noticed this week that I was becoming pretty predictable with my summer AHB recipes. A little fruit, a simple pastry or cake batter, a tasty glaze and boom, summer recipe. This week I wanted to break out of the mold. I decided that I either wanted to make something really healthy and refreshing or something terribly decadent and over the top. Loaded Peanut Butter Rice Crispy Treats

 

Yeah, sorry about that. The sweet usually wins out, especially this week. This week was a monumental week in my household, our oldest child got their first car. Having a kid that is old enough to be out on their own going places feels crazy…and terrifying. And it makes me feel darn stinking old! But if that weren’t enough, the day after that some teenage boy gave me my senior citizens discount at the grocery store! (I’m still in my 30’s) I cried. It was ridiculous. And then I came home and ate a loaded peanut butter rice crispy treat. I swear it was good timing for these to be in my house this week. LOL.  Loaded Peanut Butter Rice Crispy TreatsWhen life gets rough, just pour some chocolate on it, that’s what I say.  So here’s to the days when silly things make us cry. May you break out the chocolate and peanut butter, break up the sadness, and move on to greater things!

They are even better when you can convince someone else to make them and bring them to you! Bwahaha. My aunt brought these to a party soon after I posted the recipe and I was like oh my gosh these are so good. It was funny because she laughed at me and told me they were my recipe. I said I know but it always tastes better when you don't have to do the work!
