#3665 - Crispy Peanut Butter Treats

(by Shirley McNevich)

1/3 cup Domino's dark brown sugar (packed)
1/4 cup Jif creamy peanut butter
1/4 cup honey
4 TBSP softened butter
2 cups Quaker quick oats
2/3 cups Rice Krispies cereal
3/4 cup Reese's peanut butter baking chips
1 cup Reese's Pieces candies

In a saucepan over medium low heat add the brown sugar, peanut butter, butter and honey--cook/stir until boiling. Once boiling, cook 2-3 minutes longer or until sugar dissolves and mixture is smooth. Remove from heat--add oats and Rice Krispies--stir to coat. Cool the mixture for 5 minutes. Add 1 cup of the peanut butter chips--stir to mix. Line an 8 x 8 cake pan with foil. Press the mixture into the foil lined pan. Spread the other 1/2 cup of peanut butter chips and all of the Reese's pieces evenly over the top. Use the bottom of a heavy drinking glass (or the back side of a large spoon) to press down the mixture all over the top so the candy gets pressed into the bottom mixture. Cool completely, then cut into squares or bars.
