These Chocolate Peanut Butter Crisp Bars are a dessert you’ll want to make by the dozen. I combined two of my favorite childhood things into one sweet delicious concoction; Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups meets Rice Krispies Treats! I’m pretty sure these things can cure depression, bad credit scores, and smallpox. They’ll also grant you super-human happiness and, if consumed by the dozen, love handles. Very happy, pleasurably achieved, love handles. Emphasis on love.
This is a very tedious recipe in terms of wait time, but so worth it. The part that added the most time was using the heart shaped cookie cutter. If you’re not making these for Valentine’s Day, then these will actually go quite a bit faster, especially if you’re really lazy and just go for the good ol’ amoeba shape. Cutting them out with the heart shaped cookie cutter was a bit of a hassle because it was an older one with an almost completely closed top, so I was prying these out with a fork and retouching the shape. But, after a bit of time, voila! Chocolate Peanut Butter Crisp Bars for everyone’s enjoyment, and well worth the wait. Good luck, and enjoy!
