Peanut Butter Rice Kripsie Treats

My friend made these for a playdate we had a few weeks ago. I love Rice Krispie treats and love recipes that they kiddos can help me with. These are sweet, and yummy! They were absolutely incredible the first day, but a little stale tasting the next day. Not sure if that was the store brand Rice Krispies I used, or that just happens to these. I did make the chocolate topping, but my daughter requested some without chocolate topping, so we had it both ways. I really liked the chocolate, personally, but they were good either way. Get in the kitchen with your kiddos and have fun!!

Peanut Butter Rice Krispie Treats
1 cup sugar
1 cup KARO syrup
1 cup Peanut Butter (I used creamy)
5-6 cups Rice Krispies

Chocolate topping (optional)
1/2 cup butterscotch chips
1/2 cup semi sweet chips
1 tsp. vanilla
1 Tbsp. milk
Measure 5-6 cups of Rice Krispies, and grease a 13x9 dish.
Put sugar and KARO syrup in a saucepan and bring to a boil.Add peanut butter and stir to combine. Take off heat.
Combine Rice Krispies and peanut butter mixture in 13x9 dish and stir together. Spread evenly

Make chocolate topping. Melt chocolate chips in microwave at 30 second intervals. When melted, add vanilla and milk to chocolate. Pour over Rice Krispie treats, and let cool and set up. I didn't put mine in the fridge because I really don't like cold Rice Krispie treats, but you definitely could do that to get a firmer bar.

We call these babies Scotcharoo Bars and they are the best things ever. After my cookies of course. = )

Do you think I could substitute melted marshmallows for the syrup and sugar? another good thing to do with rice krispie treats is add coco puffs to the mix.

I love the Cocoa Puffs idea, that would go great with the peanut butter, too!!!
On the marshmallows, I guess that would work. Just melt them the same way you do with original Rice Krispies, then add the PB. Let me know if you try it!!
