Sunny Peanut Butter Chews

by Laura

Now that the kids are done with Christmas break and are back in school why not surprise them with a yummy after school snack?  These “Sunny Peanut Butter Chews”  will brighten your kiddos day.  I found the recipe at bettycrocker.com.  So quick and easy, basically a variation on the good old rice krispie treat but made with golden graham cereal.  Then you also add some peanut butter to the marshmallow mixture.   Graham crackers, marshmallows, peanut butter, and butter how can you loose with that combination.
For those of you who are interested, you can go to this link here and see my appearance from yesterday on Studio 5.  I had a blast!

I saw you on studio 5 yesterday and had to try your flat bread tacos. They were so easy and a huge hit in my house!! I have 5 children ages 13-3 months and finding dinners that everyone loves is almost impossible…until last night!! YUMMY! Everyone cleared their plates and some even asked for seconds. Thanks for sharing!!
I am new to your blog/website and will definitely be back for more recipes!!
