Rice Krispie treats are always a crowd-pleaser. I like to take a twist on the original and make something delicious. I have previously made these Fruity Pebble Marshmallow Treats and now these! I still have a few more up my sleeve, which is perfect. This are easy to make for a crowd and easy to eat; adults and kids love them.
There is just something about the combination of chocolate and peanut butter that makes me swoon. It is my favorite combination and it is delicious in a rice krispie treat. These are easy to make and you don't even have to turn on the oven, just the stove for a few minutes. I hope you have all of these ingredients in your pantry, so you can make these right now!
1 cup of Sugar
1 cup of Corn Syrup
1 1/3 cup of Creamy Peanut Butter
4 1/4 cups of Rice Krispies
1 pinch of Salt
1/2 cup of Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
6 regular-size Peanut Butter Cups, chopped
First, in a large saucepan, melt the sugar, corn syrup, and peanut butter over medium heat until melted and well combined.
Now, remove this mixture from heat and immediately stir in salt and cereal. When the cereal has been coated, add the chocolate chips and stir again. Wait one minute, fold in the peanut butter cups, carefully, so you don't smash up the candy.
Next, line a few baking sheets with parchment paper. Drop rounded tablespoons onto the sheet. Let them cool to set up or enjoy them hot and gooey!
Store in an air-tight container.
