Chocolate Peanut butter Squares

In my never ending search for yummy and somewhat healthy treats for the girls snacks I came upon this treat on Taste Spotting.  There was a  modification  made due to allergies and a little hiccup with making the "bites"

 See.... I followed the directions and had wet hands and everything but they just stuck to me and came out looking unappetizing.

 So plan B!  They remind me of Rice Krispie treats so why not smash them into a little box and see what happens?!?!

Ta Da!  Little squares instead of bites ;)  The girls love them and Hubby stated that they sorta of remind him of his protein bars.  I am not sure to take that as a compliment or not ~ he does like those bars though ;)

adapted from here

1/3 cup honey
1/4 cup Dark Chocolate Dreams peanut butter
2 tabelspoons unsalted butter
1 cup Rice cereal
1 cup old fashioned rolled oats

In a small pot add the honey, peanut butter, and butter and heat until the butters are just melting together.  Stir until everything is completely melted and mixed together.  In a large bowl mix together the cereal and oats.  Add the melted butters to the bowl and mix to thoroughly coat all the dry ingredients.  Allow the mixture to cool until it is almost room temperature.  Place into pan and let it set in the fridge.  

Give these a go and be sure to check the original for what they are "supposed" to look like ;)
