And I set out to make the PERFECT peanut butter chocolate rice krispie treats.
First I melted the butter and peanut butter together
And then added in the marshmallows. I added a few extra to make them gooey.
I had the chocolate chips added to the cereal
and pour the gooey marshmallow / peanut butter mixture in. And proceeded to make a DISASTER! Ugh! The chocolate chips melted (duh! what was I thinking?) so I created a heavy, gooey mess. So much so that I didn't even want to take a picture and put it up.
So I decided to start over, I again mixed the melted butter and peanut butter together. Added the marshmallows. I didn't add any extra this time. Added the mixture to the rice krispies and put into the pan. All good so far
Instead of chocolate chips, I cut up Hersey chocolate bars and melted them down. I only did this because I didn't have any chocolate chips and didn't want to go to the store. I had the bars to make S'mores, which now I have to go get bars!
I then poured the mixture on top of the krispie treats.... and it promptly soaked thru. Maybe because they were bar form? not sure....
I put it in the fridge thinking it would harden into a chocolate layer on top.... It sadly did not
These treats were good, just not what I was attempting to make at all.
Here is the recipe if you are curious....
3 tbsp butter
1 bag (10 oz) large marshmallows
6 cups rice krispies
1 cup peanut butter
4 Hersey chocolate bars
Melt butter and peanut butter together. Add marshmallows and melt down. Add mixture to 6 cups of rice krispies and stir until incorporated. Press mixture into a 9x13 pan. Allow to cool.
Melt chocolate bars in pan on low heat. Pour mixture on top of bars.
I can't figure out for the life of me why it didn't work. I googled it, and found a lot of recipes used corn syrup but not marshmallows. Not really a rice krispie treat then is it?
If anyone has a better way to make these I would love to hear it!
