Ingredients

  • 6 cups Rice Krispies cereal
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup light corn syrup
  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 12 oz chocolate chips

Instructions

  • Coat a 9×13 pan with cooking spray and set aside. Pour the Rice Krispies into a large mixing bowl and set aside. In a medium saucepan, combine sugar and corn syrup. Stirring constantly, bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Remove pan from heat and add peanut butter. Stir until mixture is smooth and creamy.
  • Pour mixture into the bowl with the Rice Krispies and stir until cereal is well-coated. Pour into the prepared pan and press down evenly using a rubber spatula.
  • Pour the chocolate chips into a small bowl and microwave in 30-second intervals, stirring after each, until smooth and creamy. Pour over Rice Krispies and spread evenly using a spatula. Cover and refrigerate for a minimum of 1 hour. Cut into squares and serve!

Notes

  • Consider using a different variety of chocolate to change up the flavor.
  • It’s simple to melt chocolate chips for the topping here. But some people love to blend butterscotch and chocolate chips for a sweet blend. You might fall in love with this option known as Scotcheroos!
  • It’s also fun to toss mini chocolate m&m’s on top of the melted chips if you want to add some color and design.
  • Chopping up toffee bits and sprinkling them over the warm peanut butter rice krispies after you put them in the pan is a delicious idea too!
