Chocolate Peanut Butter Rice Krispies Treats

5 from 1 vote
These six ingredient no-bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Rice Krispies Treats are a fun twist on the classic marshmallow and cereal combo. With peanut butter melted into the marshmallows and a chocolate layer on top, they're truly addicting.
Prep time: 5 minutes
Cook time: 15 minutes
Setting time 1 hour
Total time: 1 hour 20 minutes
Yield: 16 treats

INGREDIENTS 

  • ½ cup unsalted butter
  • ¾ cup smooth peanut butter
  • 10 oz mini marshmallows
  • 6 cups Rice Krispies
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 ½ cups semisweet chocolate chips

INSTRUCTIONS

  • In a large sauce pot on medium-low heat, melt the butter with the peanut butter and vanilla extract. Stir in the salt.
  • Once the peanut butter mixture is melty and combined, stir in the marshmallows until they are melted and only a few little clumps remain.
  • To the PB marshmallow mixture, fold in the Rice Krispies until just combined and sticky.
  • Grease and line an 8x8 pan/dish and transfer the Rice Krispies treats to it. Gently press into an even layer, without pressing too hard.
  • In a microwave safe bowl, melt the chocolate chips in 30 second intervals, stirring after each. You should only need 1:30 total, with a good stir at the end - the residual heat will melt the rest of the chocolate.
  • Pour the chocolate over the treats and either set aside at room temp or place in the fridge until set. Fridge will take about an hour, room-temp will take a few hours.
