#24 Rice Krispie Treats with Chocolate & Peanut Butter Cups

I’m not sure why, but for the past week I have been craving Rice Krispie treats but felt it was too silly to make. Changed my mind.

Instead of making just regular Rice Krispies, I melted chocolate and chopped up Reese’s Peanut Butter cups on top. When I was a kid my mom use to make Rice Krispie treats with us and would always melt chocolate on top. These remind me of my childhood..plus a little bit of my obsession – Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. So good.

Start with the butter and marshmallows

Melt it down and make sure you are constantly stirring

Add in the Rice Crispies and then immediately put into a pan, so it doesn't stick to the pan you cooked it in.

Melt some chocolate, spread over the top, and sprinkle chopped up candy on top.

Cut up into squares

Don't you just want to bite into it..

 

 

Rice Crispie Recipe

Ingredients:

1/2 cup Butter

8 cups of miniture marshmallows

10 cups of Rice Krispie Cereal

3 cups of melted chocolate chips

A bunch of chopped up candy bars

Directions: (Have a 13×9 inch pan sprayed with cooking spray ready.)

1. Melt the butter in a large pan on the stove.

2. Add in the marshmallows and melt completely. Keep stirring for another 2 minutes.

3. Add in the rice krispies and do a few quick stirs. Then quickly transfer into a 13×9 inch cake pan and pat down with a metal utensil (I used a butter knife but you could use whatever).

4. Melt the chocolate in the microwave in 1 minute intervals, stirring in between each. Pour melted chocolate over rice krispies. While chocolate is still warm, add chopped up candy on top.

 

I hope you all give it a try! It’s super easy and it takes about 10 minutes really. You’ll never want to use the Rice Krispie Box version ever again, trust me.

 

Enjoy!
