Peanut Butter Rice Krispies Treats

Total Time

My mother was making these treats 40 years ago for her kids. My college age nephew asked me to make a batch for him yesterday and they are so easy and fast to make. Much less time consuming than a batch of cookies. And yummy too.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Measure out the Rice Krispies in a large bowl (I use the largest I can set my hands on).
  2. Combine brown sugar and corn syrup in small saucepan and cook on medium heat until mixture begins to bubble on top.
  3. Take off heat and stir in the peanut butter.
  4. Add mixture to Rice Krispies and stir until all the Krispies are coated, then pour into 9x11 or 9x13 baking dish. Smooth over with a spatula, let set for an hour or so and tada! (You might run a knife through warm water to help cut nice, clean squares).

Dead sweet and delicious. I agree with not enough peanut butter comments below and need of salt. I used natural peanut butter ie peanuts are the only ingredient. I usually don't have corn syrup or rice krispies in the house so I decided to try them. If I make again, I will reduce sugar and increase peanut butter and add some salt.

We thought this was ok - not enough peanut butter flavor for us. We poured melted chocolate on top of these to spiff them up a bit. I used natural peanut butter and next time probably need to add a bit of salt and possibly vanilla as well.

Yum, but soooooooo sweet. Next time I will use 1-1.5 cups total of sugars. I used maple syrup in place of sugar and corn syrup, and I used twice the amount of rice krispies.
