crisp rice cereal
Turned out Perfect, a great alternative to rice crispy treats for people who dont eat gelatin!
I also added in chocolate chips while mixing the peanut butter with the cereal. The chips melted in just enough to make a pretty swirl pattern when spreading it into the pan.
Too sweet. If you have to make this, cut way back on the sugar and corn syrup.
My mom used to make these but she added 1 bag of chocolate semisweet morsels to the top and baked it just until they melted. Then she spread the chocolate evenly over the top.MMMMMM...MMMM good!Taste like a peanut butter cup!
These are GREAT! We made them 3 times in 2 weeks. Very addictive. First batch was just as recipe directs. 2nd we did a chocolate drizzle of melted choco chips and Crisco (melted until I felt texture was right) on top. 3rd batch we put a layer of choco chips on the bottom of the pan then pressed the mixture in the pan. Next maybe some mini chocolate candies....
These taste just like the marshmallow stuff, except it has the wonderful taste of PB. If you do love peanut butter, I'd advise you to go on this recipe rather than the "classical" (marshmallow) one; in my opinion, it stays fresh longer plus you don't have to mess with washing melted marshmallows covered pans...
I decided to make these while for my boyfriend while he was at work. I just tried one, and he'll be lucky if there are any left when he gets home!
great recipe! made a few changes since i didn't have all the ingredients handy. i mixed in some corn flakes with what rice krispies i had. i only had 3/4 cup of karo syrup so i added a 1/4 cup maple syrup. also added m & m's to the mix. it turned out great! you can barely taste the maple syrup and the candies added a little extra kick. they sold in less than 10 minutes at the bake sale. everybody loved them!
My daughter and her friends made this recipe and it turned out great. I had them to add a layer of chocolate chips at the bottom of the pan before they added mixture and they sprinkled red and green sugar on top to make it festive. Everyone loved them. We'll make more today.
