Peanut Butter Chocolate Rice Crispy Treats

The following is a guest post from Lynn, who shares her many wonderful recipes at Lynn’s Kitchen Adventures.

This is one of those unhealthy, but fun and easy recipes that kids will love. This recipe is a version of your basic rice crispy treat. This version, however, is a little fancier, if a rice crispy treat can be fancy.

This rice crispy treat has peanut butter and chocolate in it. What goes better with marshmallows and rice crispy than peanut butter and chocolate? Rice crispy treats on their own are good, but add peanut butter and chocolate, and they are even better.


Peanut Butter Chocolate Rice Crispy Treats

  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1- 10 ounce package of large marshmallows
  • ½ cup peanut butter
  • 6 cups of chocolate rice crispy cereal
  • 1 ½ cups of chocolate chips
  • 1 ½ tablespoons of peanut butter

Lightly grease a 9×13 pan and set aside. In a large pan melt butter over medium heat. Add marshmallows and stir constantly until melted. Remove from heat, add peanut butter, and stir well. Add rice crispy cereal and stir until well combined. Carefully press into 9×13 pan.

Mix together chocolate chips and 1 ½ tablespoons of peanut butter and melt. I do this in the microwave stirring every 30 seconds until melted. Spread over rice crispy treats. Let sit until chocolate is set. Cut and serve.

  1. My husband makes this every so often and we STUFF ourself. It is so darn tasty!

    I love your title… an affair with the kitchen. I am off to look around your site now.

  2. My MIL’s friend makes a version of these for all of their tailgates and I LOVE them and have always wanted the recipe! Regular rice crispy treats, meh, but these . . . these are so good.

    Thank you! I can’t wait to finally have my hands on the recipe!


  3. Interesting recipe with the marshmallows and chocolate rice krispies. My family’s all time favorite recipe is similar but doesn’t have marshmallows–it uses corn syrup to bind the cereal (plain, not chocolate) and peanut butter together. And you use 1/2 a bag of chocolate chips and 1/2 a bag of chocolate chips. Seriously the best cereal bars EVER!

  4. My family’s favorite rice krispie treat goes as follows:

    Peanut Butter Rice Krispie Treats

    Combine 1 cup peanut butter, 1 cup light corn syrup, and 1 cup granulated sugar in a large pot. Heat over med-high heat and bring to a low boil. Let boil for about 30 seconds, then remove from heat. Stir in about 7 cups Rice Krispies. Pour into pan. Then top with chocolate chips. Let them melt, then spread over the top. (They are just as delicious without the chocolate, too.)

    Try them today. If you’re like me, you’ll never go back to the marshmallow kind!

  5. I know two little boys who will think these are wonderful. The only thing better than chocolate is peanut butter and chocolate with a little crunch.

  6. Is there a particular kind of marshmallows that are right for this recipe? I was really excited when I came across this recipe, because my husband loves rice krispie treats. I tried it, and the marshmallows would not melt. They softened, stuck together in a big gloop, and then started to caramelise. Rather than stopping (which would probably have been the wisest thing to do), I added the peanut butter and rice krispies. Now I’m eating big lumps of warm, sticky marhmallows with chocolate krispies attached off a fork!
