When I make these, I melt the peanut butter and butter together before adding the marshmallows. After pressing them into the pan, I sprinkle about 1/4 c each chocolate and butterscotch chips over the treats, then put the pan into a warm oven for a few minutes to help soften the chips. Swirl the melted chips together to add another dimensions of yumminess to the treats.
DS & DD love these. I made them the microwave way so they were ready in under 10 minutes: in a large microwave-safe bowl, melt the butter, marshmallows & peanut butter for 3 minutes (stir after 2 minutes). Stir then continue as directed. I followed reviewer Dragonfly AZ and sprinkled the top with mini-chocolate chips, stuck it in the warm oven until soft, then spread all over. I normally refrigerate RK Treats but have left them out as they're easier to cut at room temp. Don't think they'll be around for long. Thanks!
MMmmm, these are good! Tired of making ordinary rice krispie treats, I made these tonight and found them very yummy. My only complaint is that they seem drier than regular krispie treats and were harder to mix with the cereal as a result. I would maybe add a little more butter next time but thank you!
Okay, I tried this a second time (after cooking on too high a heat and failing the first time). They taste great, but they don't hold together and are a bit dry (as another reviewer noted). I would have to manipulate the quantity of something to get it right or try a different recipe.
I was looking for a recipe similar to the one I grew up with - and I think this is the one!! I made them exactly as per instructions and mmm mmm mmm
THIS RECIPE ROCKS! I carefully followed the directions, as I have never made Rice Krispie treats before. I wanted to make a different type of treat for Easter, so I made some into a nest and added mini-robin eggs after they had cooled. I also used empty small plastic easter eggs as a mold. My crew of taste test dummies loved the flavor, texture and taste. Thanks' for this recipe.
This is the best Rice Krispie treat I've ever made. My family just loves them. You won't be dissappointed! Renae63
