I love Rice Krispies Treats®. Growing up my Mom made them as an afternoon snack and, following in her tradition, I made them for my kids. Actually Rice Krispies Treats® was one of the first things that my Mom taught me how to bake. They are the perfect recipe for young bakers because they are No Bake, really fast and easy to make, and they use everyday ingredients.
If you love the Classic Rice Krispies Treats®, you will definitely want to try this peanut butter version. Peanut butter is a smooth paste made from roasted peanuts. The peanuts are ground, and then salt, a sweetener, and sometimes a stabilizer (to keep the oil from separating) are added. Now, the ones without the stabilizer are usually labeled “Old-Fashioned” or “Natural” and this type of peanut butter will separate so you will have to stir the peanut butter before using. You can use either type in this recipe.
Marshmallows give these treats their deliciously sweet vanilla flavor. You can use either homemade marshmallows or store bought. If using store bought my preference is the miniature marshmallows, mainly because they melt faster. But it is important to use fresh marshmallows (so check the expiry date on the bag) as they melt so nicely.
