Peanut Butter Rice Krispy Treats

Does anyone have a Peanut Butter Rice Krispy Treats recipe they would like to share. I remember when i was in highschool they would sell this at the snack cart and they sure were tasty. just trying to relive my younger days!

  1. I make this every Christmas, but they're not like tradional "Rice Krispy Treats" with marshmallow; more like truffles. I don't even know the name of the recipe, someone just told it to me off the top of their head.

    1 cup creamy peanut butter
    1 stick of butter
    2 cup confectioner sugar

    Blend above. Fold in 1 cup Rice Krispies.
    Make little balls and freeze.
    Roll in 12 oz melted chocolate.

    1. I have a tried and true family recipe. I have to find it. I will post it soon. I have been craving them myself.

      1. I've always just stirred in 1/3 - 1/2 cup of peanut butter when I add the cereal to the melted butter and marshmallow mixture. The heat is enough to melt the peanut butter. Works well with Nutella, too!

        1. My mother makes "peanut butter scotchies" from an ancient (early 60s, '61 or '62) recipe clipped by my grandmother from a women's magazine. I don't have it handy for exact proportions, but it consists of a mixture of karo syrup, peanut butter, and butter cooked together on the stovetop until bubbly...then you stir in the krispies and spread in a buttered pan. This mixture is then spread with a topping made of half-semisweet & half butterscotch morsels. They're terribly sweet, but a far sight tastier than the ordinary krispie treat. The resulting bar is firmer and chewier than a standard marshmallow treat.

          1. I add a hefty glob of peanut butter - probably 1/2 to 2/3 cup - in with marshmallows and butter as they melt, but you can use as much or as little as you like. The peanut butter blends thoroughly with marshmallows this way. If you want a really rich and sweet treat, top them with chocolate chips.
