I tend to be a fairly predictable person.

I generally don’t “keep people on their toes”. I don’t “fly by the seat of my pants”.

I like the norm.  The status quo.  A schedule.

I work well with structure and repetition.

That doesn’t translate into boring…I am just prepared.  Isn’t that what we try and teach our children?

When people say they are looking for “spontaneity” and “excitement” I just don’t get it.

I have never been that person.

I like what I like, I do what I do, and I don’t need anyone coming in all willy-nilly messing up my order.

Don’t pop over unannounced.  I don’t have a “pop over-able personality”.  I need time to plan.  To  prepare.  To “wrap my mind” around the fact that you are coming over.

You know, to go over possible talking points in my head…to plan snacks…to choose a nail color.

I don’t do spontaneous vacations.  The thought of a get up and go trip gives me anxiety.  There is far too much to do before a vacation.  I need weeks, if not months to prepare.  I mean it takes me days to pick out my “airplane outfit”, which is totally a thing, by the way.

I hear people when they are talking about finding a boyfriend or a husband, “He needs to be spontaneous”….why?

Trust me you do not want a spontaneous husband…one who is always going to be the “fun” parent while you are stuck doing homework and dishes.

I am still a fun person.  At least that’s what I tell myself.  I just like to plan my fun.

So back to predictability…

You come here and you know what you are going to get.  That’s comforting.

I mean, what if I got all spontaneous and decided to make a cake out of beets or something.  You would be disappointed…

And my goal is not to disappoint you.  Along with being completely non-spontaneous, I am also quite needy, apparently.

So in keeping with tradition around these parts, I have made another krispie treat for you.

It’s a good one.  Really good.

Nutter Butter Peanut Butter Rice Krispie Treats.

I nailed it.

First get you some Nutter Butter cookies.  These are my husband’s most favorite store-bought cookie, behind the Golden Double Stuf Oreo and the Samoa Girl Scout.  Man loves him some preservatives.

You will need a whole pack of these lovies.

And then it might hurt your heart a little, but you have to chop them to smithereens.

A large knife lays on top of chopped Nutter Butter cookies on a cutting board.

Now go about making rice krispie treats as you normally would, but mix in the cookies…

Crushed Nutter Butter cookies are added into a mixing bowl with a rice krispie marshmallow mixture.

Once you have your cookies, krispies and marshmallowy mix together, press it into a prepared pan…

When it is ready, go ahead and cut it into squares.

The edges are trimmed from a slab of Nutter Butter peanut butter rice krispie treats.

And it’s very important to taste test.

    The idea of a pop-in scares me. Seriously. Our doorbell rings and I “shush” everyone and run to the peephole to assess the situation. Who ARE these pop-in people?

    I’m pretty sure my son would faint if I made these. You are the QUEEN of the KRISPIE!!!

    I have never had nutterbutter cookies before, but the next time I’m in the states, it looks like I’m going to have to try to find them! Looks delicious!

  3. I just made Rice Krispie Treats the other night and am ready for another batch. I’ve got to try these. I love nutter butters.

    Good God, woman! Will there EVER come a day that you post something and I DON”T want to lick my computer screen??? Love this!

  5. Erika @ The Teenage Taste

    I am the exact same way. I am such a planner that when my set schedule is thrown off I go a little crazy. Rice Krispie treats are good – they just so happen to be my old stand-bys! My favorite part is definitely taste testing the end pieces. Mmmmmm! ๐Ÿ˜€

  6. Alysha @Shesontherun

    Oh my goodness, these look heavenly! I love nutter butters, so I’m sure these taste even better than they look. It does seem like 2 bags of marshmallows is a lot, but I trust you!
