Chocolate Peanut Butter Rice Krispie Treats


My kids love Rice Krispie Treats and peanut butter, so this combination was an instant hit! Chewy squares of marshmallow and peanut butter covered rice cereal are covered with a rich layer of peanut butter chocolate ganache. My kindergartener's exact words were, "Mom, you for SURE need to put this recipe on the computer so ALL the people of the world can know how to make these. They are so GOOD!" She's right. It doesn't get much better than this!

Chocolate Peanut Butter Rice Krispie Treats
Makes 20

4 tablespoons butter
5 cups mini marshmallows
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
6 cups crispy rice cereal

Topping:
1 cup peanut butter
2 cups chocolate chips

1. Grease a 9x13 pan with cooking spray. Measure out the rice cereal into a large bowl and set aside.
2. In a medium saucepan, over low heat, melt the butter and marshmallows. Stir in peanut butter until melted and smooth and remove from heat.
3. Stir in vanilla, then add cereal and quickly stir until completely coated.
4. Use a buttered spatula to gently press the cereal into the greased pan and allow it to cool while you prepare the chocolate layer.
5. Place chocolate chips in a microwave-safe bowl and heat at 30 second intervals, stirring each time, until melted and smooth. Mix in peanut butter completely, then smooth evenly over the top of the cooled rice krispy treats.
6. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until firm, then cut into small squares and enjoy!
