Its sad this recipe isnt getting the credit it deserves. It was easy and my family is requesting it again for thanksgiving. I made the recipe as is but didnt make it into football shapes because I'm not that talented.

Made these for a Super Bowl party today and they were a big hit. People not only loved the cute football shapes, but they enjoyed the peanut butter flavor too. I doubled the recipe and it worked well, but I do think that it needed a bit more cereal. The regular Rice Krispie treat recipe calls for 6 cups of cereal for a single batch, not 4. I ended up putting 9 cups of cereal into a double batch and it still wasn't quite enough. I'll probably put in 10 next time.

I didn't think I would like these, because I am not a fan of peanut butter--but I totally did! I brought them to a bar during football playoffs and they were a HUGE hit with everyone. SO easy to make as well. I am making them for a super bowl party, and I am going to try and figure out a way to make them more chocolaty (either chocolate chips or cocoa powder?). Oh also, I used this recipe for the frosting, and just squeezed it out of a ziplock bag that I had cut the corner off of.
