Dressing Up with Peanut Butter Cup Rice Krispies Treats

Rice Krispies Treats are a favorite childhood snack. Mom always made them with the recipe from the box with marshmallows, a little bit of butter, and a whole lot of Rice Krispies. But times change and Rice Krispies Treats have grown up. With the addition of peanut butter and a spread of chocolate on the top you can have a beautiful Peanut Butter Cup Rice Krispies Treats in not much more time than it takes to make the originals. But you might want to make a double recipe because Peanut Butter Cup Rice Krispies Treats go fast!

Peanut Butter Cup Rice Krispies Treats in Minutes

I love making Peanut Butter Cup Rice Krispies Treats.  They are ready in about as much time as it takes for them to be eaten.  We have a debate in my house about which peanut butter is best: creamy or crunchy.  So I use both in my Peanut Butter Cup Rice Krispies Treats.  A half a cup of each makes deliciously peanuty Peanut Butter Cup Rice Krispies Treats, and everyone is happy.  I have to admit I cheat on the chocolate top.  I sprinkle chocolate chips on the top then stick the pan under the broiler for a minute to soften up the chocolate.  I then spread it over the top and refrigerate it for 10 minutes to firm it back up.  It makes amazing Peanut Butter Cup Rice Krispies Treats that are a good twist from the original.
