Peanut Butter Rice Crispy Treats

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 20 mins

This is an easy wonderfully tastey treat that is great for all occasions. This is my mother in law's recipe, that my sweet husband had as a child, and my children ask for also. I have also molded these in to little brains on Halloween.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place sugar, syrup and peanut butter in heavy sauce pan and bring to a boil.
  2. Place the rice crispies in a large bowl.
  3. Stir the mixture on to the top of the cereal, til all is covered.
  4. Place mixture on buttered cookie sheet, use hands covered in butter to spread. (I have tried to use a utensil,and always reverted to the hand spreading method).
  5. Place in fridge to cool.
  6. Cut in squares.

Mmmmm these are chewy, rich deliciousness! I halved the recipe since I was making them for just me (and didn't need a whole huge pan of them!) I put the half recipe in an 8x8 pan. Didn't and wouldn't change a thing! Thanks for sharing!

I loved these as a kid! Now a mom I make them for my kids. A few different things I remember...we made (make) them in a lasagna pan using wax paper to smoosh them down. Also we melt choc chips and spread it on top. Oh so good.

Very tasty! I made a ton of other cookies and brownies and other stuff and these were eating right away and way faster than everything else! Everyone loved these and they were not to airy and not to dense, just PERFECT! thanks lori lissa!
