Chocolate Peanut Butter Rice Krispies Treats with Chocolate Ganache

We’re counting down the days!  Which isn’t difficult to do right now because it’s only 4 days until we leave on our trip.  Holy smokes.  Just writing that gives me butterflies!  I’m so excited and a tad bit nervous too.  We’re off to Peru for 6 weeks to do some volunteer work.  (You can read more about our adventure HERE.)

But before we leave to go discover the world, we are going to bring you these bad boys: Chocolate Peanut Butter Rice Krispies Treats with Chocolate Ganache.  What?!?!  Yep, you read that right.  Yowza!

This recipe comes from Hugs and Cookies XOXO (which is one of my favorite blogs for desserts.)  I changed the recipe a little bit but the general idea is the same.

 This is just layer upon layer of delicious!
