This recipe was handed down from my great-grandmother. I'm not sure when traditional marshmallow krispie treats came on the scene, but this recipe could have preceded it! These are what I grew up on. I do not like marshmallows, so I find this recipe to be perfect. You can also top with melted chocolate if you like. Original recipe calls for 1 cup sugar, but I found it to be too sweet, so I cut it in half. You may wish to add more.

Thanks for posting a very quick and easy to make treat that my entire family enjoyed! Peanut Butter Krispies are a great alternative to no-bake cookies. I used 3/4 cup sugar and was happy the level of sweetness. Hint: Wet your hands slightly when pressing these treats into the pan.
