How to Make Peanut Butter Rice Krispie No Bake Recipe
Peanut Butter Rice Krispies
Prepare the Pan: Line a 9x9-inch square pan with parchment paper, leaving some excess on the sides for easy removal. Lightly grease the paper with cooking spray to prevent sticking.
In a large saucepan on the stove top over medium heat, melt butter.
Once the butter melts, add the fresh marshmallows in and stir until they are fully melted and combined with the butter. Remove the pan from the heat.
Stir in the creamy peanut butter into the marshmallow mixture until smooth and well-blended.
Pour the crisp rice cereal into the large bowl with the marshmallow mixture.
Gently fold and stir until the cereal is evenly coated.
Transfer the cereal mixture to the prepared pan. Using a sheet of wax paper or lightly greased hands, press the mixture firmly and evenly into the bottom of the pan.
Rice Krispie Topping
In a microwave-safe bowl, melt the semi-sweet chocolate chips and or dark chocolate chips in 30-second intervals, stirring well after each interval.
If your chocolate is not melting smooth, add a tablespoon of coconut oil to the chocolate to help smooth out the chocolate.
Once the chocolate is melted and smooth, pour a thick layer of chocolate over the cereal mixture in the pan.
For an extra touch, sprinkle a pinch of sea salt for a delightful flavor contrast. Allow the treats to cool and set at room temperature or refrigerate them for faster results.
Once the treats have completely cooled and hardened, lift them out of the pan using the excess parchment paper. Place them on a cutting board and cut them into small squares or rectangles. Enjoy each little slice of these delectable Chocolate Peanut Butter Rice Krispie Treats!
