Muddy Buddy Rice Krispie Treats

I really love seeing the blog series my friends do – and one of my favorites every year is The Spiffy Cookie‘s #PBChocSat. It’s a nod to her favorite college football team – the Buckeyes – and while I have no real interest in college football, I love anything that involves peanut butter and chocolate.

When she said she was getting a group together to kick off this year’s series, I just had to jump in on the fun.

These treats are no-bake and super simple. There are just a few added ingredients from a traditional rice krispie treat, but that peanut butter and chocolate pack a big flavor punch! Rolling them in powdered sugar really makes them feel like muddy buddies – sugary fingers and all.

These travel well and don’t need refrigeration so they’re ideal for tailgates and potlucks, too.
