Now there are a ton of recipes out there, like Scotcheroos that have peanut butter and butterscotch in the treats and a thick layer of chocolate on the top, or peanut butter rice krispies with chocolate drizzled over the top, but BOTH of those are messy. What I wanted was the peanut butter and chocolate INSIDE the Rice Krispie treat together... living in harmony... sharing the marshmallow-y goodness and easy to transport if necessary.
|Chocolate Peanut butter Rice Krispie Treats!|
1 bag of Marshmallows (I used 21 oz campfire square marshmallows)
9 cups of Rice Krispie cereal
1/2 stick of butter
3/4 cup peanut butter
1/2 bag of chocolate chips (about 1 cup)
9x13 pan (grease with butter or cooking spray)
Start by spraying your large bowl with a bit of cooking spray. Add in 9 cups of Rice Krispie cereal.
|I use my biggest bowl to hold all the Krispie goodness.|
In a pot on the stove, melt 1/2 stick of butter, 3/4 cup peanut butter, and the 1 cup of chocolate chips.
|Melt the good stuff with the butter!|
|If heaven had a smell, it might be this...|
|These are the 21 oz square campfire marshmallows (minus a few my kids ate)|
Bring the chocolate peanut butter mixture from the bottom and fold over the marshmallows.
Eventually you will get a pretty smooth chocolate lava concoction.
|These are a few of my favorite things...|
|Spraying this bowl with a little cooking spray before you add the Krispies will save you a ton of clean up time later|
|Soon you will have a beautiful sticky mess of cereal and yummy-ness.|
|Nothing is more satisfying the globing this big hunk of deliciousness and thunking it down in a pan.|
