Rice krispy treats made with peanut butter and chocolate with an added layer of creamy chocolate and peanut butter ganache.
Chewy, gooey, and super adaptable – a blank canvas for adding in anything and everything your heart desires. I love all the different ways you can dress them up and they make an easy, no-bake treat that you can whip up with little notice.
By adding in some creamy peanut butter and melted chocolate, they are transformed into an even more irresistible and decadent dessert.
If you’re looking for an easy and fun no-bake dessert, rice krispy treats are a perfect family friendly choice to help you feel like a kid again 🙂
- 5 cups Rice Krispies cereal
- 1/2 cup chocolate chips I used semi-sweet
- 1/2 cup peanut butter
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- 1 10-punce package Marshmallows about 4 cups
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- 1-1/4 cup chocolate chips
- 1/3 cup smooth peanut butter
- 1/2 cup peanut butter for drizzling
- Line an 8x8 square pan with a sheet of aluminum foil coated lightly with cooking spray, leaving an overhang on the sides.
- In a large saucepan, melt chocolate chips and butter over medium heat. Add, salt, peanut butter and marshmallows and stir until completely melted. Remove from heat.
- Add crispy rice cereal. Stir until well coated.
- Using a flat spatula, press mixture firmly and evenly into prepared pan. Allow mixture to cool and set for 30-40 minutes.
- In a microwave-safe bowl, melt peanut butter and chocolate chips in 30-second increments until smooth, stirring constantly in between each increment to avoid the chocolate from burning. (Do not over melt). Pour melted chocolate mixture on top of cooled crispy rice cereal and spread evenly using an offset spatula.
- Heat peanut butter in the microwave for about 10-15 seconds. Scoop peanut butter into a small ziptop bag with a tiny hole in the corner snipped off. Drizzle peanut butter over the chocolate. Allow to set up and cool completely for about 2 hours on the counter or place in the fridge or freezer for faster set up time. Cut bars into evenly sized squares.
- Allow bars to come to room temperature before serving.
