Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Rice Krispies Treats – Great for Back to School!

Print Friendly

Rice Krispies Treats were always a kids favorite lunch box dessert.  I can remember when my mom would make a batch and unwrapping the crunchy square from my lunch pail with such joy.  I loved the chewiness from the rice krispies mixed with a hint of sweetness from the marshmallows.

Today, there are pre-packaged rice krispies treats which I would not recommend. But, what I do encourage is making a fresh batch of treats and adding a few familiar ingredients like peanut butter and chocolate chips and embrace your inner child.  Chocolate and peanut butter together in one rice krispies treat makes back to school seem much easier to swallow.

 

Ingredients

5 1/2 cups rice krispies

50 large marshmallows

3 tablespoons butter + more for pan and fingers

1/2 cup creamy peanut butter

1/2 cup chocolate chips

 

To Prepare:

1.  In a medium saucepan over low heat, add the butter and peanut butter.  Melt on low for 2 minutes.
