Fun Recipes for Holidays

These two recipes are great when you're at a family get together. Easy to make up and I've got to say very addictive.

Probably why I make treats during the holidays. So enjoy!


Cocoa Krispie Treats

1 cup light Karo syrup
1 cup sugar
1 cup peanut butter (chunky is the best!)
6 cups Cocoa Krispies

Heat Karo syrup and sugar in pan until starting to bubble. Stir in peanut butter until mixture is smooth. Fold in Cocoa Krispies and stir until well blended. Put in 9x13 pan and chill slightly. Cut into squares. These always go very fast!!

Peanut Butter Squares

1 cup margarine
2 cups powdered sugar
1 cup peanut butter (I prefer chunky) 12 oz pkg milk choc chips
2 cups graham cracker crumbs

Melt margarine, add peanut butter, powdered sugar and graham cracker crumbs.

Press into 9x13 pan. Melt chocolate chips and spread on top. Chill and cut into small square pieces. Store in refrigerator.

Very much like Reese's Peanut Butter Cups!


  1. Just what I need, more treats...yum!

  2. I love making up the goodies, Rebecca. But I have to share so I don't eat them all up. Enjoy!
