If you love chocolates and peanut butter, this treat is for you! I always make sure to whip up a big batch and just keep the rest in the freezer. Before freezing, place the bars in an airtight container with wax paper in between each layer. Then, store in the freezer for up to 2 months. Before serving, thaw these bars in the fridge and bring them to room temperature.
8 ounces chocolate chips about 1 ⅓ c.
1 10-ounce bag of mini marshmallows about 5 c.
¼ c. unsalted butter
6 c. Rice Krispie cereal
2 tsp vegetable oil
½ c. peanut butter
How to make Peanut Butter Rice Krispie Treats
Step 1: Using nonstick cooking spray or butter, lightly grease a 9 x 13-inch pan.
Step 2: Melt the butter, mini marshmallows, and peanut butter in a large saucepan over low heat, gently stirring. Take the pan off the heat once melted and whisk in the Rice Krispies.
Step 3: Into the prepared pan, press the mixture.
Step 4: Into a medium-sized heatproof bowl, add the chocolate chips or chopped chocolate. Place in the microwave and heat on medium power for 45-second intervals, stirring in between each burst.
Step 5: Whisk once almost melted until smooth, then stir in the vegetable oil.
Step 6: On top of the bars, pour the chocolate and set aside for about 2 hours at room temperature until it hardens.
Sep 7: Once set, cut into squares. Keep the Peanut Butter Rice Krispie Treats in airtight containers at room temperature.
Use only 5 ½ cups Rice Krispies, for softer, gooier bars.
You can keep these bars for up to 3 days. Just store them in an airtight container at room temperature.
