Peanut Butter Chocolate Rice Krispie® Treats
Who says crisped rice treats are just for kids? I made these treats with a chocolate-peanut butter topping today – cut small and served on a tray, they would be appropriate for any grown-up gathering.
- 3 tablespoons butter
- 1 bag large marshmallows (10 ounces)
- 1/2 cup peanut butter, plus 1 1/2 tablespoons, divided
- 6 cups crisped rice cereal
- 1 1/2 cups chocolate chips
- 1 1/2 tablespoons peanut butter
Lightly grease a 9-inch x 13-inch pan and set aside.
In a large pan, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the marshmallows and stir constantly until melted. Remove from the heat, add the peanut butter and stir well. Add the cereal and stir until well combined. Carefully press into the pan with wax paper or buttered fingers.
Mix together the chocolate chips and 1 1/2 tablespoons peanut butter and melt (easiest in the microwave, stirring every 30 seconds until melted). Spread the chocolate over the crisped rice treats. Let sit until the chocolate is set. Cut and serve.
