This recipe has been a favorite in my family since I was a child...a long time ago! The original recipe was called Special K drop cookies, but when my kids were little, they could never remember all of that, so they started asking for "that peanut butter stuff you make." From that time on, Peanut Butter Stuff meant the Special K drop cookies with a few alterations. I changed the cereal to Rice Krispies, and I usually make them as a bar cookie instead of dropping by teaspoonful. Either way, they remain a favorite, take less than 10 minutes to make and are a favorite for pot lucks.
