Kickin’ the original Rice Krispie Treats up a couple notches by adding in some peanut butter, then topping them with some Golden Grahams Cereal, some melted Butterscotch Chips, and some mini Reese’s Pieces candies. Ummmm, can you say YUM?!!!
- 1 stick of butter
- 1 cup creamy peanut butter (I used Jif)
- 1 bag of mini Marshmallows
- 5 1/2 cups Rice Krispies Cereal
- Golden Grahams Cereal (about a cup)
- Butterscotch Chips
- Reese’s Pieces Baking Candy Pieces
Prepare an 8×8 brownie pan by lining it with parchment paper. (Or generously spray with Pam Spray.) Melt the butter in a large pot on medium low heat. Add in the mini marshmallows and stir until almost melted. Add in 1/2 cup of peanut butter, reserving the other half. Add in 5 1/2 cups of Rice Krispies cereal, stir to combine. Then swirl in the remaining 1/2 cup of peanut butter.
Pour into the parchment lined pan. Use the back of a large spoon to firmly press the mixture into the pan. Top with Golden Grahams Cereal. Push cereal into top of bars. Next, add Butterscotch Chips and place in a low 200 degree oven until Butterscotch Chips are melted and spreadable. Spread the Butterscotch Chips over the Golden Grahams Cereal. Next, add the mini Reese’s Pieces candies and press them into the Melted Butterscotch Chips.
Let the bars cool, pull them out by the parchment paper, remove the parchment paper, and slice them into squares. Stack them neatly on a platter of your choice and they are ready for serving! Any leftovers, keep them in a sealed container to retain their freshness. Enjoy!
See you next time! Carla XOXO
