Do you love Reese’s Peanut Butter cups and Rice Krispy treats??? Well a Sweet Marie bar is what happens when the two collide!! We have been making this irresistible treat every year for our Christmas Holiday treats!! This year I wanted to make a little twist for Valentines with this yummy bar and here is the result!
This bar is one of our very favorite treats and so easy to make! Here in our house we love Peanut Butter and Chocolate. I think they are even easier to make than Rice Krispy treats and a lot less sticky!! These bars stay nice and chewy if kept at room temperature! I added a little flair to these bars by using a heart cookie cutter and cut the bars out into hearts!! I then drizzling with pink, red and white candy melts, to top it off I threw a few sprinkles on top of the candy!!! So pretty!!!
And some I just drizzled the candy over the top!! These little devils are hard to resist!
