Classic rice krispie treats are given the one two flavor punch of peanut butter and chocolate. There isn’t just a little in there, this is full on flavor. You are going to love this tasty twist on the classic cereal bar!

Rice krispie treats are one of those simple recipes that can be whipped up almost any time. They have that perfect balance of chewy and crispy and take almost no effort to make.

Add in a heaping pile of peanut butter and plenty of chocolate and what was good is now great! These make a fun lunchbox snack or would be perfect for a party.

I love using an adjustable measuring cup for measuring peanut butter!


The result still gives you that chew and crunch that make the originals so good, but with a ton more flavor. For a peanut and chocolate lover like myself, it’s hard to beat.

With such a high ratio of goodies to cereal they taste fabulous. They are soft and almost feel gooey without being messy.

They almost feel like candy as much as rice krispie treat. All of that peanut butter really shines through!

If you are looking for a plain rice krispie treat recipe, I have one for thick and chewy rice krispie treats that are decorated like mummies. If you want a cute way to decorate these as turkey treats, just wait until Wednesday!

I'm pretty sure the only way to improve upon Rice Krispie treats is to add chocolate and pb. These look so good, Carlee!
