PEANUT BUTTER TREATS

I'm borderline-ashamed to even call this a "recipe." These are glorified Rice Krispies Treats and I won't pretend for a second they're anything more. Either way, all you need is a microwave and less than ten minutes, so let's do this:

Peanut Butter Treats - Hunt & Harvest

WHAT YOU NEED:

3 tablespoons butter

10 oz. marshmallows (about 40 large or 4 cups miniature)

1/2 cup peanut butter*

6 cups cereal of your choice**

*I used creamy, non-natural (crucify me if you must)

**I used Trader Joe's Multigrain O's. Any of the following would also work: Cap'n Crunch, Grape Nuts, Honey Nut Cheerios, Special K, whatever your heart desires

HOW TO:

  1. Grease 9 inch square (or any size/shape you want) pan with oil, butter or cooking spray. Measure cereal into large bowl, set aside.
  2. Heat butter and marshmallows in a microwave safe container for three minutes, or until melted and smooth. Check and stir every minute or so. Add peanut butter and stir until combined.
  3. Quickly pour over cereal, using a greased spoon or spatula to coat. Press mixture into pan using spatula or greased hands (olive oil is great for your skin, I swear). 
  4. Wait patiently for bars to cool before cutting. In the meantime, lick bowl clean.
