Peanut Butter & Reese Cup Rice Krispie Treats

Oh my goodness- these are dangerous! Who doesn't love Rice Krispie Treats?!? Add Peanut Butter & Reese Cups on top & they become insanely delicious!! This is a perfect recipe for little helpers too! My daughter had a blast making them! Ingredients:
6 cups Rice Krispie Cereal
1 large bag of Mini Marshmallows
3-4 tbsp of Butter
2 cups Creamy Peanut Butter
40-50 Mini Reese Cups
1/2 cup Mini Chocolate Chips
I think everyone has forgotten just how easy these yummy treats are to make! Stop buying the pre-packaged ones!! Homemade tastes SO much better & it only takes about 5 minutes! First thing, butter a 9X13 casserole dish. In a large sauce pan, melt 3 tbsp of butter over low/ medium heat. Add the marshmallows & cook, stirring frequently until completely melted.
Add the cereal & remove from heat. Fold gently to incorporate well.
Pour into the buttered dish & press to make even. It will be sticky; the easiest way that I have found to do this is to get a dab of butter on my finger tips & use them press the rice krispies into the dish. Set the RKTs aside.
Open all of the Miniature Reece Cups, this is an excellent job for little helpers!!
Hannah (& Daddy) opened them while I cut them into quarters.
These are going to be SO yummy! (Celebrating while snacking on an extra Reese Cup!)
Put 2 cups of creamy peanut butter into a microwave safe bowl.
This is what 40 Miniature Reece Cups look like, cut into quarters.
Melt the peanut butter in the microwave, cook for about 45 seconds. Gently fold in the Reece Cups to the melted peanut butter.
Pour over the top of the Rice Krispies, spreading to make an even layer. Sprinkle the mini chocolate chips over top. (You could also melt chocolate & drizzle it over the top with a spoon!)
Let sit (or refrigerate) so the peanut butter & Reece Cup layer hardens for a bit. Then cut & enjoy these insanely delicious treats! I originally found these sweet treats on a fellow foodies site here:
