  • In microwave-safe bowl heat butter and marshmallows on HIGH for 3 minutes, stirring after 2 minutes. Stir until smooth. Add peanut butter, stirring until combined. Follow steps 2 and 3 above. Microwave cooking times may vary.
  • Note
  • For best results, use fresh marshmallows.
  • 1 jar (7 oz.) marshmallow creme can be substituted for marshmallows.
  • Diet, reduced calorie or tub margarine is not recommended.
  • Store no more than two days at room temperature in airtight container. To freeze, place in layers separated by wax paper in airtight container. Freeze for up to 6 weeks. Let stand at room temperature for 15 minutes before serving.
  • Kellogg's has reduced the sodium content of Rice Krispies to meet current consumer flavor- and nutrition-preferences. Rice Krispies Treats made with the lower sodium cereal taste great without any added salt, but, if you desire, add 1/4 teaspoon salt to the butter before melting. Continue with recipe as directed.

Add some Chocolate Chips or a chocolate layer to this recipe and it is just great!

These didn't turn out quite like I was expecting. They were much drier than what I prefer Rice Krispie treats to be so next time I would add more marshmallows. They didn't have all that much peanut butter flavor either. I did drizzle melted chocolate on the tops after they had cooled. Thanks :)

These RK treats were delicious! To make them extra gooey (which everyone loves), I added another 1/2 cup of marshmallows!

I took these to a cookout and they were devoured. I didn't change any ingredients but I did melt the peanut butter along with the butter (on low/med low heat to avoid scorching) and it worked just fine. I think it probably makes it easier to stir than when you add the peanut butter after. I also melted some chocolate and put a coating on the top, refrigerated for a few hours, and cut into squares. I find the squares hold their shape better if you press the mix into the pan pretty firmly.

I made these for a school event. Everyone loved them. Will definitely make them again.

These were way to dry, not moist and sticky like regular rice crispy treats. I think I'll stick to the original.

I made these for a family gathering since Rice Krispies Treats are always a hit with people of all ages. The peanut butter flavor was good, but I would suugest using more marshmallows since it did come out a bit drier than the original rice krispies treats. Enjoy!

I used a HEAPING 1/2 cup of chunky peanut butter and an entire 10 ounce bag of mini marshmallows. To microwave which is much easier, put butter and marshmallows in large microwave safe bowl and cook on high for 2 minutes. Warning the marshmallows do expand and the whole mixture will rise so use a large enough bowl. Stir after the 2 minutes and stir in the peanut butter while mixture is still hot. Stir in Rice Krispies and pour into prepared pan. Easy and delicious!
