Chocolate Dipped Peanut Butter Rice Krispies

Rice Krispies Treats are a classic childhood dessert. It was a special night in our house when mom pulled out the ingredients to make a batch, and you can bet they were gone by the next day. I wanted to jazz up the classic recipe so I went on a recipe search. Up came this recipe that included peanut butter in the krispies mix, with a dunk in melted chocolate to finish it off. They are deliciously addictive.

Chocolate Dipped Peanut Butter Rice Krispies
Makes several servings

  • 4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, plus more for dish
  • 10 ounces jumbo marshmallows
  • 3/4 cup creamy, common brand peanut butter (recommended: Jif or Skippy)
  • 6 cups crispy rice cereal (recommended: Rice Krispies)
  • 6 ounces semisweet chocolate chips

1. Melt the butter over low heat in a large pot. Stir in the marshmallows and cook until fully melted and no marshmallow white remains. Stir in the peanut butter until combined. Stir in the cereal until distributed evenly through the marshmallow mixture. Pour out onto a lightly greased rectangular baking dish (9" x 13"). Smooth out the top of the treats by moistening your hands with a little water and using the palms of your hand to press down gently. Don't press down too hard or else your treats will be too dense. Set aside to cool.

2. Once the treats have cooled, melt the chocolate over low heat. Cut the treats into even squares and quickly just shallowly dip the top side of the treats into the chocolate. Turn chocolate side up and set in a baking dish or on a rack until set. (I *gently* flipped my batch of treats over onto themselves to create an extra thick rice krispies treat)

  2. Oh my word, those look incredible! Maybe I can make them this weekend when our out-of-town guests are here ...

  3. Looks yummy. Rice Krispie treats are popular around here but I have never tried them with peanut butter.

  4. I figured it out. You are trying to kill me with your luscious food.

  5. I have made these hundreds of times and they are always a humongous hit!
    Glad you posted the recipe with such a great pic.

  6. Mix chocolate chips and butterscotch chips together, pour on top and you have got yourself a real treat!

  7. Oh my gosh, hide these from any kids because these should be rice krispie treats for grown-ups alone. I hope you'll come by and link them up to Sweets for a Saturday #6.

Stick of Butter Rice

This delicious side dish was a hit at my house. The raving over this recipe was intense. To put it mildly, everyone loved it.

Personally, I felt that the amount of butter could be cut down a bit in this recipe. I'll leave that up to you guys to decide what you think is best. I think I would go with 1/3 cup and see how that goes next time around. If you have unsalted butter I'd also recommend that you go with that, instead of the standard salted butter. Between the condensed soup and broth, it can get a bit salty.

Note that for this recipe you want to use standard white rice, not instant rice. Enjoy!

American Flag Strawberry Poke Cake

Get ready for an insanely delicious and patriotic dessert, an American Flag Strawberry Poke Cake. This is a fun one to have the kiddos help decorate. We've made this cake for a few forth of July celebrations now and it is always a huge hit.

An alternative and even simpler way of making this cake would be to use raspberries instead of the strawberries for the decoration on top. You could even use raspberry Jell-o as well. Enjoy!
