Rice crispy treats NEW AND IMPROVED!!

We all know rice crispy treats. Apparently I already talked about them this year, but I'm going to talk about them again, real quick. I've been eating rice crispy treats my whole life. Butter, marshmallows, crispys.

This time something magical happened. I stirred in some peanut butter. WHAT!! It was awesome. I feel like I've been missing out my whole life. Did you guys know about this?

Chocolate crispys + marshmallows + butter + peanut butter = <3<3

Chocolate and peanut butter crispy treats

2 T butter
1 bag marshmallows
1/2 c peanut butter
5 c rice crispys (I used Erewhon chocolate ones)

Melt butter and marshmallows in whichever method you want. I like to use the microwave, but if you use the stove don't forget to stir constantly. This is hard work. Once your marshmallows and butter are melted, stir in the peanut butter, then the crispys. Press into a buttered pan and let cool, then try not to eat all at once.


  1. I had cripies like this in Bellingham, WA a few months ago, except they had a nice thick layer of dark chocolate on top. And were roughly the size of your average cinder block. Superb.

    Needless to say, I'll be trying this recipe as soon as humanly possible. Thank you!

  2. Whoa, such a good idea!! I'm going to make these this weekend and if I'm successful I'll post them on my blog and link back to you :)
    Wish me luck!!


  3. I've had some like that before, but not GF! OF course, peanut butter makes everything better. This sounds really tasty.

    Anything with peanut butter is a win in my books! And so simple to make! It doesn't get too much better than that! I'll definitely need to make these soon! Thanks for sharing! :)

  5. I have a peanut and corn allergy as well, but found this delicious recipe from Clean Food.
    Melt in a saucepan:
    1/2c cashew butter
    1/2c brown rice syrup
    1/2c maple syrup

    1/4c chocolate chips
    stir and melt together.

    Combine with 4 cups rice crispys. Press into an 8x8 pan.
    Refrigerate and enjoy.

  6. Oh my goodness, that looks so yummy! I bet my kids will love them!
