Peanut Butter Cup Rice Crispy Treats

peanut butter cup rice crispy treats 1 2 Peanut Butter Cup Rice Crispy Treats

I am absolutely hooked on rice crispy treats. My newest obsession is creating new rice crispy flavor varieties. They are yummy, totally easy, and quick to whip up a big batch. (And, as a mom to five kids, I also appreciate that they are not messy!)

This past weekend, I experimented with a few new tastes, and of course I had to try a peanut butter and chocolate variation. I love the combination of peanut butter and chocolate, and they worked perfectly with the crispy rice cereal bars.

This recipe can be easily modified – want a stronger peanut butter flavor? Add a Tablespoon or two more peanut butter. Like a gooier rice crispy treat (is gooier even a word)? Add a few more marshmallows. Crave more chocolate? Melt a little more chocolate (no one would ever complain of more chocolate, would they?).

Ready for a delightful treat? Get out your saucepan and cereal…and enjoy!

Author:
Recipe type: Dessert
Ingredients
  • 3 Tbsp butter
  • 32 regular marshmallows (or 3 cups mini marshmallows)
  • 2-4 Tbsp creamy peanut butter
  • 5 cups crispy rice cereal
  • 4 oz melting chocolate
Instructions
  1. Melt butter in a large saucepan over medium heat.
  2. Add marshmallows and melt, stirring frequently.
  3. When the marshmallow/butter mixture is fully melted, remove the pan from the heat and peanut butter. Stir until combined.
  4. Pour rice cereal into the pan and stir gently until completely covered.
  5. Press rice crispy treats into a lightly buttered 9x13 baking dish and press firmly into pan (I like to use a sheet of wax paper to press the treats down so my hands don’t get too sticky).
  6. Melt chocolate (I melted my chocolate in the microwave) and pour over rice crispy treats in pan. Let cool for at least 30 minutes and cut into bars.
  7. Store rice crispy treats in a covered container. If you have any left-overs….

    • Thanks Jo-Lynne! :-) Of course they are yummy, why wouldn’t they be? Krispie peanut butter and chocolate – how can that NOT be good? LOL!

  3. Rice Crispy Treats hold a soft spot in my heart. We made them at Girl Scouts a lot and had to make them at home. The pb and chocolate flavor rocks my socks! Thanks Lolli. And thanks Kelli for sharing.

  4. I’ve come across a butterfinger rice krispy treat recipe that I think is from Lolli too? I’d have to look it back up in my bookmarks. I’ll have to try these for my boys.
