Let's Cook a Meal: Peanut Butter Rice Krispie Treats & Cravings

I was craving chocolate like no other earlier this week, so I decided to try this peanut butter Rice Krispie treat recipe sent to me from Kristen.  Although it became a bit sticky midway through (bless), this cake turned out really well and was delicious! In today's video, I also discuss how to manage cravings, what works for me and how to figure out when you should and maybe shouldn't give in to a craving :)

Ingredients:

7 tblspoons butter
7 cups marshmallows
7 cups Rice Krispie cereal
1/2 cup peanut butter
Bag of Peanut Butter Cups
1.5 cups chocolate chips

Directions:

1. Melt 4tblspoons of butter
2. Add in marshmallows and melt down with butter
3. Stir in peanut butter
4. Add mixture to Rice Krispie cereal and blend together
5. Place half of Rice Krispie mixture in a pan and pat down
6. Add a row of Peanut Butter Cups
7. Place the remaining Rice Krispie mixture on top and pat down
8. Heat up 3tblspoons of butter and the chocolate chips in the microwave (30-second increments; check and stir after each increment)
9. Frost the top of the cake
10. Chill in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes
11. Top with more chocolate chips and remaining Peanut Butter Cups
12. Enjoy! :)
