I was doing a little spring cleaning on the blog and I found this blog post that somehow got overlooked. I had intended to post it a couple of weeks ago. Better late than never.
He had worked really hard to keep himself on weight during the season but after his last weigh out on Friday night, all diets were off. (He started the weekend at 129 pounds and I he ended the weekend at nearly 135 pounds.) Luckily, I had anticipated this drastic change in his eating habits (not my first wrestling season) and armed myself with chocolate caramel peanut butter rice crispy treats. If that didn't satisfy his craving for something sweet, nothing would.
Chocolate Caramel Peanut Butter Cereal Treats
3 Tablespoons butter
10 ounce bag marshmallows
1 Tablespoon vanilla
7 cups Rice Crispy Treats
14 ounce bag caramels
2 Tablespoons water
1 1/2 cups peanut butter
12 ounce bag semisweet chocolate
Place caramels in saucepan with water. Heat on low heat until melted.
Place dessert in the refrigerator and allow to set up for about 1 hour or until chocolate is firm to the touch.
Cut into squares or rectangles when firm.
These traveled really well in a Tupperware container all the way to the wrestling tournament. What happened to them after the boys got a hold of them, I will not say. I will tell you that they were well received.
Bars are easiest to cut when cold but are best eaten at room temperature or only slightly chilled.
You don't have to be a wrestler to appreciate these chocolate caramel peanut butter rice crispy treats. Trust me.
