peanut butter rice crispy treats
  • Cooking Time: 10
  • Servings: 16
  • Preparation Time: 6
  • 4 cups puffed rice cereal
  • 1 stick butter
  • 1 package mini marshmallows
  • 1/2 cup chunky peanut butter
  1. melt butter over low heat, add marshmallows and peanut butter to get a smooth mixture.
  2. Add rice cereal, mixing quickly and scooping up from the bottom to make sure that you get an even mix.
  3. Pour into a 9x12 baking dish - and here is my secret - wet your hands, then press the treats down.
  4. I like my treats dense, so I really make sure they are evenly spread and mushed well into the pan,
  5. When cool, cut and enjoy!
I have always loved rice krispy treats, and one day I wondered if adding some peanut butter would work. It actually makes them less sticky and gives them a little more "tooth"
