These Peanut Butter Rice Krispie Kisses take me a long way back to when I use to visit my sister at her house for Christmas. I can still remember looking in each Christmas tin she had her goodies in until I found them. Oh, with the combination of the peanut butter mixture and the chocolate kiss in the center, you could easily go to "yummieville" (a sugar coma you might say) real quick!
At Christmas, I saw on Facebook where my sister's daughter, Corey, had posted the recipe, which gave me the inspiration to make some. Well, I not only made one batch of these, I made three batches of them. They were so good and were a great addition in my Christmas gift boxes. Because they did not last long in between me making each batch, I did not get to take any pictures of them at Christmas for a post on my blog, so I thought what better reason than to make another batch for our Super Bowl Party. These would also be a great treat for Valentine's coming up.
