Who knew a Rice Krispie treat could be so rich and decadent? This dessert merges two of our favorite things - Rice Krispie Treats and peanut butter cups. The base is a traditional Rice Krispie treat. But that's where tradition ends. The treats are topped with creamy peanut butter and chunks of mini peanut butter cups. Milk chocolate drizzled on top is the perfect final touch! A bit decadent and really delicious. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen

How to Make Peanut Butter Cup Rice Krispies Treats

Step-by-Step

  1. Butter a 9×13-inch pan and set aside.
  2. Measure the cereal into a large mixing bowl and set aside.
  3. Melt the marshmallows and butter together in a medium saucepan over medium heat (or in the microwave for about 3 minutes, but keep watch so the marshmallows don’t puff over the sides of the bowl!).
  4. Pour the melted marshmallow mixture over the cereal.
  5. Mix well so the cereal is coated.
  6. Pour into the prepared pan and use a buttered piece of wax paper to press evenly into pan.
  7. Cut the peanut butter cups into quarters.
  8. In the microwave, melt the peanut butter until thin, about 1 minute.
  9. Gently stir in the quartered peanut butter cups and then pour over the treats.
  10. Using the back of a spoon, gently spread the peanut butter mixture evenly across the top.
  11. Again in the microwave, melt the chocolate chips.
  12. Using a spoon, drizzle the melted chocolate across the top.
  13. Place the pan in the refrigerator to set before cutting and serving.
  14. Store in an airtight container.
