Peanut Butter Cup Stuffed Rice Krispie Treats

You can’t call yourself a peanut butter lover until you’ve tried these over-the-top rice krispie treats. Not only did we stuff them with a surprise layer of chocolate peanut butter cups, we stirred in plenty of PB with the marshmallows.

Then the only thing missing was more chocolate, so we topped the whole thing off with a swirl of melted chocolate chips.

Plus these bars are no-bake, and so easy to make when you need a quick dessert. Really the hardest part is waiting for them to set up in the fridge.

Peanut Butter Cup Stuffed Rice Krispie Treats
Prep: 5 Mins | Total: 1Hr 20 Mins
Serves: 12-16
Difficulty: Easy
Ingredients
3 Tablespoons Butter
1 (10 ounce) bag Marshmallows
¼ Cup Peanut Butter
5 Cups Crisped Rice Cereal
16 Snack Size Peanut Butter Cups, unwrapped
1¼ Cups Chocolate Chips (semi-sweet, milk, or dark) (melted)
Directions
Line an 8-inch × 8-inch baking pan with parchment paper or foil and spray it with non-stick cooking spray.
Melt the butter over low heat in a large saucepan. Add the marshmallows and stir until they're completely melted. Stir in the peanut butter and mix until it's smooth.
Add the cereal to the marshmallow mixture and stir until it's completely combined. Working quickly, press half of the cereal mixture into your prepared baking pan.
Arrange the peanut butter cups on top of the cereal layer in a 4×4 grid. Add the remaining half of the cereal mixture over the peanut butter cups and press it into an even layer.
Pour the melted chocolate on top of the cereal and use a spatula to spread it into an even layer. Place the pan in the refrigerator until the chocolate is set, about 1 hour.
Once set, remove the treats from the pan and cut them into individual squares. Store in an airtight container.
