Tiger Treats

This recipe is SOOOOOOOOOOOO simple, and SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO addicting! I have a memory of making this with my sister to take on our camping trip to Yosemite. Anytime we wanted a snack, we ate this, and it was a very indulgent snack. It's funny, I just realized when I have taken a trip with my sister Lana, we always have some snack that we eat, and we eat too much of it. Like the time we drove up the coast to northern California and bought a big bag of sour gummy worms from Costco and ate the whole thing! Blah! Anyways, back to the recipe.
These are like rice crispies treats, but different because of the addition of the peanut butter, frosted flakes. These are so good, and if you leave the pan out on the counter, they will disappear...promise. This is another one of those simple, "must put on the blog to share" recipes.

Tiger Treats

1 pkg marshmallows
1/4 c. butter
1/3 c. peanut butter (creamy)
7 1/2 c. frosted flakes (use generic, it's cheaper)

In a large pot, melt butter and marshmallows together. Add peanut butter, stir until smooth. Add frosted flakes, and stir until completely coated. Pour mixture into a greased 9x13 pan, pressing mixture into the pan, let cool and cut into bars.

Uh, actually what is your recipe, I thought this is how you make them? More butter?

I usually do 1 stick of butter, a bag of large marshmellows...Melt them together and remove from heat then add 1 cup of peanut butter...mixed with a box of Frosted Flakes. Yours sounds waayyyy healthier and with mine you don't have to grease the pan because the mixture is pre-greased.. :)
