Crabby Krispies - Erin

It is a well-known fact that I am slightly crabby and less pleasant to be around when I haven't eaten anything in a while, so I have to make sure I always have food available.  Mostly for the safety of the people around me...  But these are delicious, and have healthy stuff mixed in too, so they're perfect!  It's basically a combination of a granola bar recipe from my grandma (Tutu) and rice krispies.  I just make a batch, and then individually wrap them and keep them stashed all over the place to prevent any outbursts.  And really, you could substitute basically whatever you want in here, so give it a shot!

what you will need

1/4 cup butter
1/3 cup peanut butter (crunch or creamy)
1 bag (10 oz.) mini marshmallows
3 cups rice krispies
1 cup shelled pistachios
1/3 cup dried blueberries
1/3 cup dried cranberries
1/3 cup dried cherries
1/3 cup rolled oats

Melt the butter in a large pot or sauce pan.  Once it's melted, add the peanut butter, stir around until it's smooth, and add the marshmallows.  Keep the mix moving until the marshmallows are completely melted, and everything is mixed together evenly.  Remove from the heat, then add in everything else, and mix it up as quickly as you can, before the marshmallows cool too much.  Dump it onto a baking sheet, or even just some parchment paper, and press it out flat, to the thickness of your choice.  Once it cools, cut it up into squares or bars, and enjoy!
