Chocolate Peanut Butter Rice Krispie Treats

Chocolate Peanut Butter Rice Krispie Treats

We had the teenagers from church over again the other night, so Bear whipped up his famous treats for the occasion. He makes these whenever a bake sale comes around, and they go almost before he can even put them out on the table. He let me share the recipe with you, so get ready to be the hit of your next fundraiser.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Rice Krispie Treats

4 T butter
45 large marshmallows
1/2 C peanut butter
6 C rice krispie cereal
5 oz milk chocolate
3 T butter

Melt the 4 T butter, then add the marshmallows and melt together. Add the peanut butter and stir until fully incorporated. Add the rice cereal a few cups at a time to really get the cereal covered. Spread into a greased baking pan.

Melt the chocolate and butter together in a double boiler so the chocolate doesn’t scorch. The butter will make the chocolate softer so it’s easier to spread. When melted and stirred together, spread like frosting on top of the rice krispie treats.

Rice krispie treats seem to be one of those things that nobody ever grows out of. No matter how sophisticated your palate becomes, you’ll always come back home for rice krispie treats. This version takes that yummy nostalgic treat, and makes it decadent.
