All I can say is, Quick, Easy and great tasting Rice Krispie Treats for the peanut butter lover! Traditional marshmallow based rice crispy treats are dry and tasteless compared to these...these peanut butter ones are much more of a confection. Not exactly a picture of healthy eating, but the taste is worth it!
Line a 13- by 9-inch pan with foil. Spray lightly with nonstick cooking spray.
Place 5 cups of the Rice Krispies in a large bowl (the largest bowl you have).
Place sugar and corn syrup in a large non-stick saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Continue to boil for 1 minute, no more. (Boiling time is important, it guarantees the perfect texture.)
Turn off burner and remove the pan from the heat. Stir in the peanut butter until incorporated. Add mixture to the Rice Krispies, stirring to coat. Add the remaining cup of Rice Krispies 1/4-cup at a time, stirring and checking consistency before adding more. You want to have some candy mixture remaining without rice krispies. I usually have about 1/4 cup of Krispies left at the end (only adding about 5 3/4 cups). You do not want them too dry.
Spread the mixture evenly into prepared pan. Let cool before cutting into squares. (Warm knife in hot water to help cut nice, clean squares.)
FoodLover2010 3y agoVery easy! Quick! Yummy, very rich in calories! I added Reese's peanut butter morsels.
Marcia331 3y agoVery good, but rich. Great with a cup of good coffee.
MichelleDenece 3y agoSoo yummy. Melted chocolate chips for thin chocolate bottom & it took this recipe to a whole new level. So good.
kelleysbeads 3y agoWe've been making these for years, they are heavenly! Except when we make them, we have a layer of melted chocolate topping on top of them. It's 6 oz of semi-sweet chips plus 6 oz of butterscotch chips melted together in the microwave. Before you say you don't like butterscotch, I'm saying now that it doesn't taste like butterscotch at all! I prefer a light chocolate layer, but do what you feel is right! :). Oh, and they need to set up in the fridge till the topping hardens...enjoy :)
smobrien 3y agoThese were a big hit made per the recipe. Next time I might add some peanuts or add chocolate drizzle to take them to the next level. Thanks for the recipe!

dougpsulkowski 3y agoThis recipe was easy, and the PB treats were awesome! I admit that I'm a sucker for anything with peanut butter, but they are good!
samanthakaysmith 3y agoThese were great! Lots of fun making them with my family and sssoooo good. My only critique would be that next time I'm going to use more than 6 cups of rice crispies.
