Total Time 50 minutes

Chewy Peanut Butter Krispie treats topped with Candy Corn, Peanuts, and Reese's Pieces. This adaption of everyone's favorite childhood treat is here just in time for Halloween!

Ingredients

For the krispie treats:

  • ¼ cup unsalted butter
  • 1 bag (10oz) marshmallows
  • ½ cup creamy peanut butter
  • 5 cup crispy rice cereal
  • 1 cup mini marshmallows

For the topping:

  • 1 bag (10oz) peanut butter morsels, melted
  • ½ cup Reese's Pieces
  • ½ cup dry roasted peanuts, salted
  • ½ 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.

Notes

  • There are a few common mistakes that can lead to hard, tough Rice Krispie Treats. Make sure to use fresh cereal and marshmallows and keep the heat on low when adding the marshmallows to the butter.Most importantly, do NOT press too too hard when spreading the treat mixture in the pan! The harder you press, the harder the bars will be.
  • Do rice krispie treats need to be refrigerated? Big NO! Chilling rice crispy treats will make them hard.
  • Can you freeze rice krispy treats? Another no. Some say they have good results with freezing rice krispie treats but I find freezing makes them taste stale and less than appealing.
