Peanut Butter Cup Krispies

Dear Kate Middleton,

I think you’re super pretty and skinny and I am sure very smart.

It’s awesome you are a Princess now and get to do all kinds of Princess things.

I also think it’s great that you are trying hard to be “regular”.  Like wearing denim and doing your own food shopping.

Because I will tell you..if I became a Princess I would SO not food shop.

Ever again.

I also love the fact that your sister is named Pippa.

It makes me want to have a little girl and name her that.  Because I just like saying it.

But there is something we need to talk about, you and I.

Everyone is loving all your super chic fashion choices…

People are clamoring to dress like you.  You have a lot of power right now.

But I need to say this.

Because it’s been bothering me.

Please…PLEASE stop trying to bring panty hose back.  PLEASE.

I’m not quite sure why you are doing it…your motivation, if you will.

I have read my weekly glossy magazines and it appears that you are trying hard to make panty hose happen again.

No one wants this.

I am sure that I speak for the masses here.

Maybe panty hose are comfortable for you…but for 99% of the women out there they are a torture device.

We have evolved as a gender…Spanx have been invented, as well as tanning creams.

There is no place for the nude pantyhose in 2011.  No place at all.

Especially the shimmery nude ones.

We are not vampires.  We don’t need our legs to shimmer in the daylight.  That’s why God invented glitter.

Please make it stop Kate.

I really want to like you and I am afraid if you continue on this path I will have to disown you as my thinspiration.

Thank you for your consideration on this very importation matter.

Your friend,

Shelly

ps – I will totally fly over to the castle and talk this out with you..you know, if you’re interested in discussing this further.  Hugs.

 

Now, on a completely unrelated note.

Peanut Butter Cups Krispies.

Because it’s a good idea.

 

Start with Peanut Butter Cups.  Like 21 of them.

Unwrap them all and put them upside down in a foil lined 9×9 pan.

Then you’ll need some more peanut butter.  It’s protein.  I’m trying keep you healthy.

Add your protein to the delicious marshmallow and butter concoction.

Then stir in your krispie cereal and dump on top of your unassuming peanut butter cups.

Press the krispies evenly and let them get to know the peanut butter cups.  Their introductions will take about 15 minutes.

Then turn their world upside down.

Carefully peel the foil off and welcome them into your home.

If you’re feeling extra crazy drizzle them with melted peanut butter chips.

You have to wait a few more minutes now.  Let the peanut butter chips set.  It won’t take long.

Then you should eat them.

The end.

Hi! I’m Shelly and I’m an addict. Of the buttercream sort. I started this site a few years ago as a way to justify my sugary, buttery obsession with desserts. It has worked out well for me so far, because as it turns out you guys all love sugary, buttery desserts too! It feels good to know you're not alone, doesn’t it?

Why can’t I pin this??? Not only does the recipe look freaking amazing but I laughed so hard I got funny looks from my family reading your letter to Kate. I’m with you on this. Pantyhose are just ridiculous. It’s inevitable you will get a run in them within the first hour.

Becca

Oh, this recipe sounds wonderful! But, I don’t have the full size Reese’s cups. I only have the mini unwrapped ones in the 8oz. bag. So, how many of those would I use for this same recipe? I want to be sure I have enough, before I’d start making it. Sounds yummy & can’t wait to make it! 🙂

What are pantyhose?For once Google has no answer! I’m from England so I don’t know. Are they tights? Tights are actually pretty big over here. Plus I found out earlier that American Milkty Ways are our versions of Mars bars so I’m still in awe.

I just found your blog and I have to say I heart you! 🙂 I think your writing is fantastic and I want to try every recipe on here! Needless to say I have become a follower of your blog! I am going to try the Whopper Brownies this weekend, I’ll let you know how it goes. Thank you so much for sharing! 🙂

I made these treats for friends and family and they absolutely loved them. Thank you for sharing this great recipe.

I don’t know why I’m just getting around to reading this, but it’s got to be your funniest post yet. I was on the floor reading it. And, on a more serious note, I completely agree.

Shelly, I don’t know you, and yet I love you. That post was brilliant. Your concern for my health is most appreciated, as is your completely correct opinion on pantyhose. I try to justify her choice with the fact that perhaps, it is a rule that the royal must endure, like no gum in public, ever saying the word toilet or having privacy. I must say, for the swap, I’d wear them, but I’d also grocery shop. I heart grocery shopping, it’s one of my simple pleasures. Now if I only had Kate’s budget to do it. Keep sharing the… Read more »

Lol..I tried to catch this after I pushed post. A girlfriend of mine sent me two blogs, yours and Jennie’s Kitchen and I unfortunately got them confused! I’m so sorry! I was overwhelmed by her post of losing her husband and the next day read the next e-mail I was sent, which was yours and just connected them because I couldn’t get it off my mind.

On a much brighter note, I’m instantly a big fan of yours and look forward to keeping up with your posts, and keeping straight who is who!

Thanks for the laugh,
Katie

grace

hilarious letter, shelly, and spot-on. 🙂
this is an outstanding twist on rice krispies treats–ingenious work!

Paula

I’m with everyone else on the raves for this yummy treat. I’m with Danielle on the pantyhose. Since retiring, I’m rarely ever *dressed up* but when I am, I’m in my pantyhose. Feeling my *dressy* outfit is unfinished without them and because I can’t stand wearing heels without hose.

This post made me laugh out loud! So funny…and so delicious-looking. THANKS!!!

Lauren at Keep It Sweet

Ha that was a great letter, I totally agree! No need for pantyhose to come back at all! These are the most delicious looking rice krispy treats ever!

Sue

You’re too funny, and you’ve outdone yourself with these treats! Oh my!

Lisa

I love your letter to Ms. Middleton, but I think I love this recipe even more. In fact, I think I drooled on my keyboard. So much fun!

Ann

I am totally on the side of Kate – pantyhose for my incredibly pale legs is a must….

They are SO pale, I have a five o’clock shadow if I’m not careful! PLEASE bring panty hose back!

Actually, it doesn’t matter – I’d wear them anyway…

Peanut butter cup krispies look amazing!

Kjersti Helberg

Those remind me of scotcheroos but an even more indulgent heavenly version! haha 🙂 This would be fun to try with lots of different candy bars too!

natalie (the sweets life)

thanks for the PSA to Kate–I sincerely hope she stumbles across it 😉

on another note, these are amazing. i want to make them this weekend!!

Dorothy @ Crazy for Crust

Oh my WOW! I want to make these to torture my husband. He hates rice krispy treats (hates marshmallows and the cereal) but he LOVES PB cups. I could make them and eat them in front of him and he could drool and retch at the same time. Priceless.

Emily

I’ve read that she has to wear the pantyhose due to royal protocol. If you look at pictures of all the royals together they all have them on. This recipe looks delicious..can’t wait to try!!

sweetsugarbelle

My brother said the other day, “I’m so glad Kate Middleton is bringing back eyebrows…” Me too. But the pantyhose thing is quickly overshadowing it. And Dear Kate. You are gorgeous, and I would love to be as thin as you are, but it would be okay if you had just a few of these. Since every one is listening, I think it would be perfectly okay for you to start the “a bit of meat on your bones look” Pretty please, for me =)

Seriously though, Shell, YUMMY!

Jill

I am dying here! Too funny!! I agree with you – pantyhose has no place in 2011!

SMITH BITES

i, for one, am soooooooo thankful pantyhose are a thing of the past . . . well at least to the majority of the world . . . have no idea what’s up w/Kate but i’m sure she’ll listen to you . . . btw, did you know that peanut butter cups were one of my favorite candy bars in the universe?? snickers, butterfingers, baby ruth bars, almond joy bars, big hunks . . . huh. it appears that i had quite a few ‘favorites’ on my list . . .

Ouiser

Lord, I love peanut butter. Thanks for that.

Also, I read that it’s a rule…royals are required to wear hose…with certain exceptions. Like the beach. You can find loads of hose-free pictures from before the engagement. Poor girl. She must really love her husband!
