Learn how to make soft and sweet peanut butter rice krispie treats!! Topped with milk chocolate, these are not your ordinary rice krispie treat recipe. Including tips on how to keep them soft and sticky. Enjoy!
Recipe: 1 cup light corn syrup 1 cup granulated sugar 1 Tbsp water 1 cup smooth peanut butter 1 tsp vanilla extract 1/4 tsp salt 6 cups rice krispies (a.k.a 'crisp rice cereal') 2 cups milk chocolate chips (or chocolate of your choice)
Line an 8" x 8" baking dish (for thick treats) or a 9" x 13" (for thin treats) with foil. Grease foil with vegetable oil, butter or shortening. Set aside. In a medium saucepan over medium-high heat, combine corn syrup, sugar and water. Stir constantly until the mixture JUST bubbles around the edges of the pan. Remove from heat immediately and stir in peanut butter, vanilla and salt. Pour over cereal in a large bowl and fold gently to coat the cereal. Transfer mixture to prepared baking pan and let cool. While mixture is cooling, melt chocolate in a bowl over barely simmering water while stirring constantly until half way melted. Remove from heat and continue stirring until chocolate is smooth. (alternatively melt chocolate in microwave by nuking in 30 second intervals, stirring between each just until chocolate is melted. Continue stirring until smooth). Pour melted chocolate over treats and spread out to a uniform layer. Let cool and cut into pieces. Makes 16-24 treats. Enjoy!
