Or is that just me?
When the cups were firm, Mike and Patrick were right there prepared to fulfill their taste-testing duties (they take their job very seriously). As they peeled off the paper liner, beautiful chocolate peanut butter cups appeared. Remember me talking about those children eating and dancing in place? I'm pretty sure we all did that. I know I did when I ate my first one.
They were so good! They weren't overly sugary and they had a pure peanut butter and pure chocolate flavor. I was in love! I knew then that I wanted to experiment more with that flavor combination.
So, when I saw "chocolate peanut butter" at the grocery store for the first time, I understandably freaked out. I just had to use it in a recipe. And the taste was great! Same thing, not overly sugary, staying true to the pure flavors of chocolate and peanut butter. But what could I make with it? I decided to use it as a base for my Chocolate Peanut Butter Rice Treats. Mmmm... they are so good. No marshmallows here! I use naturally sweet honey instead, with a little vanilla and chocolate chips, whoooo!
Now, I can enjoy the chocolate peanut butter connection whenever I want. These are great for a weeknight sweet treat or even for a Halloween or other holiday party. And put some music on....there's a good chance that these little treats will have you dancing and swaying in place!
