Peanut Butter Chocolate Fudge Rice Krispy Treats

That’s a mouthful of a name, I know. But these are worth it. Worth every bit of time and effort, worth every calorie and extra mile on the treadmill.

Worth. It.

I can’t take credit, these are all Joy (the Baker)

Rice Krispy Treats

  • 3 tablespoons butter or margarine
  • 1 package (10 oz., about 40) regular marshmallows
  • – OR –
  • 4 cups miniature marshmallows
  • 6 cups Rice Krispy Cereal (or any puffed rice cereal)

1. In large saucepan melt butter over low heat. Add marshmallows and stir until completely melted. Remove from heat.2. Add Rice Krispies cereal. Stir until well coated.

3. Using buttered spatula or wax paper evenly press mixture into 13 x 9 x 2-inch pan coated with cooking spray. ( You may want to line your pan with parchment paper or waxed paper large enough to have flaps hanging over the sides. This will make it easy to pull the giant block of goodness out of the pan when it’s done. I just forgot this step. But as recorded in the comments below, some people had trouble with the wax paper sticking to the Krispie treats.  A well sprayed pan might just be your best bet!) Cool. Make Peanut Butter Fudge.

Peanut Butter Fudge

recipe from Alton Brown

  • 1 cup butter, plus more for greasing pan
  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 pound powdered sugar

Microwave butter and peanut butter for 2 minutes on high. Stir and microwave on high for 2 more minutes. Add vanilla and powdered sugar to peanut butter mixture and stir to combine with a wooden spoon. Pour over the Rice Krispy treats in the pan and spread evenly. Let cool in the fridge while you make the Chocolate Fudge.

Cut into 1-inch pieces or smaller and give to your friends. They’ll thank you, sort of.

    Perfect! I was looking for a way to use up some marshmallows leftover from a camping trip and some minis that were stuck together! This sounds like a really yummy treat! I think I’ll try a choc buttercream frosting though. Thanks for sharing!
