There are a few foods from my childhood that I still adore, even though my palette has evolved over the years. Rice crispy treats is at the very top of that list. Love ’em! Can eat a whole pan myself, but I would have to fight off 7 other people to accomplish that feat. My kids love them just as much as I do.
To me, there is nothing as great as the original recipe, but I still enjoy the many variations that are out there. The Cookies and Cream version was very popular with everyone (including my readers!) and they have a show-stopper appearance compared to the original.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Crispy TreatsThis version of rice crispy treats probably ranks #2 for me. Classic combination of peanut butter and chocolate. I use semi-sweet chocolate, but feel free to use milk chocolate if that is your preference.

These no bake peanut butter treats are soft and chewy!  Gluten free because they are made with rice crispy cereal.

  • Yield: 16 bars


  • 1 C peanut butter

  • 1 C sugar

  • 1 C corn syrup

  • 6 C rice crispy cereal

  • 1 C semi sweet chocolate chips


  1. In a large microwave safe bowl, mix together the peanut butter, sugar and corn syrup. Microwave on high for three minutes until the mixture boils fully. Mix well again.
  2. Add the cereal and mix to thoroughly coat. Press firmly into a lightly greased 9×13″ pan.
  3. Melt the chocolate chips in a small microwave safe bowl for 1 minute. Stir until smooth and spread evenly over the bars. Allow the chocolate to become firm before cutting. You can put the pan in the fridge to quicken this process.
