Yes another Rice Krispie treat! Again, my favorite cereal that makes amazing treats! Chocolate Peanut Butter Rice Krispie Treats might be the best one by far. I love peanut butter, and chocolate to top it off. Great combo of course! These are another quick and easy recipe to make in a pinch when you don’t have a lot of time.
Surprisingly this recipe doesn’t call for marshmallows. First layer is the peanut butter, corn syrup, brown sugar, granulated sugar and a pinch of salt. Then simply finish it off with the easy chocolate topping.
I took all the Chocolate Peanut Butter Rice Krispie Treats to work and they were devoured within minutes!
Chocolate Peanut Butter Rice Krispie treats
- 1 cup light corn syrup
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 1/2 cup light brown sugar
- 1 cup creamy peanut butter at room temperature (don't use natural)
- 1 pinch sea salt
- 5 cups Rice Krispies
- 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
- 3 tbsp whole milk
- 2 tbsp creamy peanut butter at room temperature (don't use natural)
Line an 8.5x11-inch baking pan with parchment paper. Make sure the parchment paper is hanging over the sides. It will be easier to get the bars out of the pan when they are done. Set aside.
Add the corn syrup, brown sugar and granulated sugar in a large saucepan over medium-low heat and stir to combine. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Once boiling, remove from the heat and immediately stir in peanut butter and a pinch of sea salt. Mix until well combined. Quickly stir in Rice Krispies. Spread into the prepared baking pan. Lightly grease your hands and press the mixture evenly in the pan. The harder you pack the mixture down into the pan the more dense the bars will be. For a lighter bar, press gently.
In a small saucepan over low heat, combine chocolate chips, whole milk and peanut butter. Cook, stirring frequently until completely melted and smooth. Pour over the top of the bars and spread evenly.
Let the chocolate topping cool. Remove the bars from the pan, cut and serve.
