Got Munchies?

Today marks a "holiday" for those who smoke the chronic.  I'm sure many people have taken today off to celebrate or called in sick, so maybe you should reconsider.  BMacs sent me this today...good thing I don't partake in this national holiday.  LOL.  
Anyway, I thought I'd post a yummy recipe that I found for those with the "munchies" and more specifically to those with a sweet tooth.  

What's better than rice krispies?  Rice krispies drizzled with chocolate and peanut butter of course!  Combine the three ingredients together and you get:  Peanut Butter Cup Rice Krispies.

The pictures should be all the motivation you need to satisfy your chocolate and peanut butter cravings.  Happy Holidays.  :)

Peanut Butter Cup Rice Krispies
taken from Brown Eyed Baker

6 cups Rice Krispies
1 bag (10.5-oz) miniature marshmallows
¼ cup (2 ounces) unsalted butter
2 cups creamy peanut butter
1 bag (12-oz) miniature peanut butter cups (about 40), quartered
1 cup milk chocolate chips (or 6 ounces milk chocolate, finely chopped)
1. Butter a 9×13-inch pan and set aside.
2. Measure the cereal into a large mixing bowl and set aside. Melt the marshmallows and butter together in a medium saucepan over medium heat (or in the microwave for about 3 minutes, but keep watch so the marshmallows don’t puff over the sides of the bowl!). Pour the melted marshmallow mixture over the cereal and mix well so the cereal is coated. Pour into the prepared pan and use a buttered piece of wax  paper to press evenly into pan.
3. In the microwave, melt the peanut butter until thin, about 1 minute. Gently stir in the quartered peanut butter cups and then pour over the treats. Using the back of a spoon, gently spread the peanut butter mixture evenly across the top.
4. Again in the microwave, melt the chocolate chips. Using a spoon, drizzle the melted chocolate across the top. Place the pan in the refrigerator to set before cutting and serving. Store in an airtight container.
