Peant Butter Lovers Crispy treats

 

I am so in love with this recipe. If you are a peanut butter fan, like me, then you will love this recipe too.  These treats are crunchy, ooey gooey, and loaded with peanut butter goodness. I ate an entire row of these babies by myself yesterday… that’s when I decided I needed to get them out of the house before one row became two, then three, then the entire pan. I decided the best thing to do was to take them over to my neighbor’s house. They were having a small pool party, perfect way to get this pan of ooey, gooey, goodness out of the house.

I ate an entire row of these babies by myself yesterday… that’s when I decided I needed to get them out of the house before one row became two, then three, then the entire pan. I decided the best thing to do was to take them over to my neighbors house. They were having a small pool party; a perfect way to get this pan of ooey gooey goodness out of my house. They were a hit! My neighbors loved them and told me they didn’t last long. SCORE! =)

Peanut Butter Lovers Crispy Treats

Ingredients:

4 Cups mini marshmallows

1/2 stick of butter

1/2 tsp. vanilla

6 & 1/2  cups peanut butter puff cereal ( I used Reese peanut butter puffs)

1/2 Cup peanut butter

1/2 Cup semi sweet chocolate chips

Directions

  • Take a stick of butter and peel the paper back. Rub the butter all over the bottom and sides of a 13 X 9 cake pan and the end of a second wooden spoon. Set both aside
  • Get another wooden spoon; in a large saucepan, over medium/low heat,  melt 1/2 stick of butter.
  • Once the butter has melted add 4 cups of mini marshmallows. Stir until butter and marshmallow melt together.
  • stir in 1/2 tsp. vanilla
  •  Add 6 & 1/2 cups of peanut butter puff cereal to the melted butter and marshmallow, mix with a wooden spoon until all the cereal is coated in the melted butter/marshmallow sauce.
  • wait 5 -7 minutes, until slightly cool.
  • Add the entire box of peanut butter candies to the crispy treats, RESERVING 1/4 cup for the top. Gently mix the candies into the mixture with a wooden spoon.
  • Switch to your buttered wooden spoon and scrape the crispy treats out of the saucepan and into a cake pan. Use your buttered wooden spoon to press them evenly in the pan.
  • Once crispy treats have been pressed into the cake pan,  put 1/2 Cup of peanut butter in a microwave-safe bowl and microwave for about 30 seconds, or until the peanut butter has melted ( do this in 15 second intervals)
  • pour the melted peanut butter in a zig-zag shape over the top of crispy treats.
  • Now do the same thing with the chocolate. Put 1/2 cup chocolate in a microwavable- safe bowl and microwave 15 seconds at a time, until chocolate is melted.
  • Pour the melted chocolate in a zig-zag shape over the top of the crispy treats.
  • sprinkle with 1/4 cup of reserved chocolate peanut butter candies
