I did this recipe for my show when I had a few kids over.

I thought I was making this for them, but I wound up eating more than all the kids combined!

I guess you're never too old for Rice Krispies Treats. It's the chocolate and peanut butter that make these completely irresistible.


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

    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 9-by-13-inch rectangular baking dish. 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.

    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 place in a baking dish or on a rack until set.
