Chewy Peanut Butter Krispie treats topped with Candy Corn, Peanuts, and Reese’s Pieces.

Peanut Butter Krispie Treats with Candy corn and Reeses Pieces

So yesterday I shared with you a quick and easy Brownie/Cookie recipe (BROOKIES). You know, the kind you can whip together in case your kids sign you up for a holiday party.

Today, why don’t your reward yourself with a batch of Krispie treats. Anyone else LOVE Payday Candy bars? These Krispie treats are inspired by one of my favorite candies.

The salty peanuts with the chewy marshmallow krispie treats alone is rewarding. But then you add on some candy corn, peanuts and Reese’s pieces, and this is definitely a PayDay dessert!

Peanut Butter Krispie Treats with Candy corn and Reeses Pieces

Speaking of “paydays”, I calculated today that there are only 4 more paychecks until Christmas. Usually by now I have done SOME shopping for the holidays. So far, I have nothing. Yikes!

But let’s not talk about Christmas yet. Even though I did buy some peppermint candy to make some delicious desserts for you all…

When is it too soon to start on the Christmas recipes?

I guess I need to work on Thanksgiving first? Yes? Little did you know I’m already playing Christmas music.

For now though, enjoy some Payday inspired Krispie treats!

Peanut Butter Candy Corn Krispie Treats

Rating: 51

Prep Time: 45 minutes

Cook Time: 5 minutes

Yield: 16 large bars

Ingredients

    For the krispie treats:
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 bag (10oz) marshmallows
  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 5 cup crispy rice cereal
  • 1 cup mini marshmallows
  • For the topping:
  • 1 bag (10oz) peanut butter morsels, melted
  • 1/2 cup Reese's Pieces
  • 1/2 cup dry roasted peanuts, salted
  • 1/2 cup candy corn

Instructions

  1. Line a 9inch square baking dish with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. In a large pot, melt butter over medium heat. Add marshmallows and turn to low heat, stirring constantly until marshmallows are completely melted. Remove from heat and add peanut butter, stirring quickly. Add cereal and stir until combined. Fold in mini marshmallows.
  3. Pour krispie treats into baking dish. Using the butter wrapper (or lightly buttered fingers), gently press the krispies into the pan. DO NOT OVER PRESS, this will lead to dry treats.
  4. Top the treats with the melted peanut butter morsels. Sprinkle with candy, peanuts and candy corn. Press those into the melted peanut butter. Cover with foil. Allow to set, about 30 minutes.
  5. Remove from pan, remove parchment paper, and cut into squares. Store in an airtight container at room temperature for 2-3 days. ENJOY.

I love all the flavors in these Rice Krispie Treats. I used to listen to Christmas music this early, but this year I’m trying to wait just a little longer.

Since I crave something salty or sweet every single day, a pan of these treats would go very, very quickly! We need to get together for lunch, I’ll bring the sandwiches you bring the treats!

These look great! I tried making my own Candy Corn Rice Krispie Treats, but wasn’t happy with how they turned out. Will definitely have to try yours, instead! I have a feeling the PB would help to cut the extra sweetness from the candy corn!
