Author Joanna Stephens



  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 3 Tbsp salted butter
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 3 Tbsp milk
  • 3 cups rice krispies
  • 3 Tbsp chocolate chips (optional)



  1. Measure out all your ingredients, except for the chocolate chips, and have them ready to make things easier on you.Then, lay a piece of wax paper out on a cookie sheet, and also tear off a second sheet and set aside.
  2. Next, add peanut butter, butter, powdered sugar and milk to a medium sauce pan. Heat over medium-low heat until all the ingredients are smooth.
  3. Then, add the rice crispy cereal to the pan, stiring until fully incorporated. Next, spoon out the peanut butter rice crispy treats mixture onto a wax paper. With the second sheet of wax paper, form out a square from the peanut butter rice crispy treats mixture (wax paper doesn't stick).
  4. When you have a shape resembling a long rectangle (doesn't have to be perfect, unless you want it to), you can let it cool on your countertop for a few mintues.
  5. Next, place 3 Tbsp chocolate chips in a small ziploc bag and seal the bag. Dip the bag in a bowl of hot water until the chocolate chips start to melt. Then, cut a tiny corner off and pipe the melted chocolate on top of the peanut butter rice crispy treats.
  6. Finally, let it cool for about 10-15 minutes in the refrigerator. Then cut your large rectangle into smaller squares.
