Reese's Krispies

What a crazy weekend it was in our house! It all started on Thursday with our youngest coming down with a fever and not feeling too well. Of course not just one child can be sick, there has to be multiples. Our middle daughter came down with the same thing on Friday so we spent most of the weekend with them not feeling well. Then our faucet handle in the kitchen sink completely broke off Thursday night while rinsing dishes. Luckily my dad was able to spend most of his weekend helping the hubby install a new one. We decided we might as well just put in a new sink while we're at it, only to discover that the previous owners did a crappy job with the current sink and they had a great time trying to get it out. Our countertop was pretty scratched up so of course we had to put in new countertops as well....why not?! By Saturday afternoon I finally had a working sink again, I don't think I've ever been so happy to do dishes haha! Even though it was sort of an inconvenience to be without the kitchen sink for a couple days, I sure do love my new one! I'm also thankful to my parents for spending much of their weekend over here helping and of course my husband!

Isn't it pretty?

Okay, on to these delicious little treats! I made these last week in effort to use up some candy we had stashed in the drawer and thought they would be perfect if you're still searching for an easy treat to make for Valentine's Day. The kids can even help you make these, they're that simple! They sort of reminded me of scotcheroos but without the butterscotch......ooh that gives me an idea for next time!

Reese's Krispies

1 cup sugar
1 cup light corn syrup
1 1/3 cup creamy peanut butter
4 1/4  cups Rice Krispie cereal
12 mini Reese's Peanut Butter cups or 4 regular size
1 handful chocolate chips


In a large saucepan over med heat, melt sugar, corn syrup and peanut butter until smooth and evenly combined. Remove from heat. Quickly add in cereal and stir to combine. Add in chocolate chips and stir again. Wait about 1 minute then add candy, gently folding the mixture together and trying not to smash up the candy.. Place parchment paper onto the counter or line a baking sheet and drop rounded tablespoons onto parchment. I used my medium sized cookie scoop. Let cool and enjoy!
