Especially a gluten-free one that you make in one bowl in 15 minutes.

The classic peanut butter & chocolate combination make these a guaranteed success.

These will take you back to that traditional rice krispies treat.

But with a twist. 

Peanut Butter & Chocolate Rice Krispies

  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • About 40 regular-sized marshmallows (10 oz.)
  • ½ cup peanut butter
  • 6 cups Rice Krispies Cereal (I use the brown rice gluten-free variety)
  • ½ - 1 cup mini chocolate chips

Directions:

- In microwave-safe bowl heat butter and marshmallows on high for 3 minutes, stirring after 2 minutes. Stir until smooth. You can also do this over the stovetop in a large pot.

- Add peanut butter, stirring until combined.

- Add rice cereal. Stir until well coated.

- Using a spatula sprayed with nonstick spray, evenly press mixture into 13 x 9 x 2-inch pan coated with cooking spray (Use a smaller pan for thicker squares).  Press chocolate chips into the top.

- Let cool at least 15 minutes. Cut into squares. Store at room temperature for 2 days, or the refrigerator for 1 week, or freeze.
