PEANUT BUTTER RICE KRISPIE TREATS

We had a cookout after Sunday night service this past week. Everyone was asked to bring a side dish to share. I had a ton of Rice Krispie's for some reason and figured I'd throw together a batch of Rice Krispie treats (which I did). But I still had a ton more cereal! So I whipped up a batch of peanut butter rice krispie treats. They were gone in a flash! One minute the platter was full, I turned my head and a minute later it was empty! LOL Who doesn't love a Rice Krispie Treat?

PEANUT BUTTER RICE KRISPIE TREATS

4 Tblsp butter
1 cup Peanut Butter
1 whole bag mini marshmallows
8 cups Rice Krispie Treats

1 cup chocolate chips
1 Tblsp oil

M & M’s


1. In large saucepan melt butter over low heat. Add marshmallows and peanut butter and stir until completely melted. Remove from heat.
2. Add rice krispies cereal. Stir until well coated.
3. Using buttered spatula or wax paper evenly press mixture into 13 x 9 x 2-inch pan coated with cooking spray. You could also wet your hands and pat it down into the pan good and tight.
4. Place the chocolate chips and the oil into a microwave safe bowl and heat for 15 - 30 seconds at a time, stirring each time, until melted. Spread evenly over peanut butter rice krispie treats.
5. Sprinkle with M & M's
Optional: Melt 1/2 cup white chocolate chips w/ a teaspoon of oil in the microwave and drizzle over the top.
Cool. Cut into 2-inch squares. Best if served the same day.

Starr,
On Portugal rice rispies are VERY expensive because they are imported, however, there are tons of plain corn flakes. In huge boxes for very cheap. I tried this recipe with corn flakes and got a great result....nice change to family favorite recipe....

Have a great week!

Nina, that's crazy that rice krispies would be so expensive! But I know what you mean. Althea (my sister-in-law in Brazil) has to modify recipes all the time too.

This is so neat! When I was a young girl, my grandmother would make these and take to church fellowships (made with peanut butter) They are yummy! This made me want some. Thanks for the recipe.....might just have to whip up a batch myself!
