These Reese’s Peanut Butter Rice Krispie Treats are moist and gooey but still hold their shape when taken out of the pan. The chocolate, peanut butter, and mallow are perfectly balanced. And the texture/consistency is great: they are nice and creamy with a crispness from the Rice Krispies. If you like Reese’s and if you like rice krispies,
This cake is amazingly delicious! I highly recommend at least trying it once. If you do, I can almost guarantee you’ll be wanting to make it again. I made it for my extended family party. Everyone who ate it said it was super good, moist, and amazing. My friends who I’ve made it for said

While I was on my mission in Hamburg Germany I had breakfast a few times in the Mission President’s home. His wife made the most incredible Buttermilk Syrup. It was truly so amazing that here 10 years later I still remember how good it was! She gave me the recipe. Unwittingly, I wrote the ingredients
