Chocolate Peanut Butter Rice Krispies Bars ~ Delicious Chocolate Peanut Butter Rice Krispie Treats are a Family Favorite! These No Bake Bars are Easy to Make and Always the First Ones Gone! 


No Bake Bars with Chocolate, Peanut Butter, Rice Krispies and Marshmallows

Your favorite childhood treat, Rice Krispies Bars, just got a makeover and if I do say so myself, they are even better! Theses chewy, soft no bake bars are loaded with Peanut Butter and Chocolate to take them to a whole new level. They come together in a blink and are sure to please the masses. Do I dare even say they might be the first gone if you bring them somewhere? I think so!

My, not so big of a fan of chocolate and peanut butter, husband couldn’t keep his hands off them, so I think that says something right there. He’s more of a fan of Monster BarsFudgy Marshmallow Brownies, or Frosted Banana Bars!

Dig into this Chocolate Peanut Butter Rice Krispies Bar Recipe!

I was first introduced to these delicious no bake bars at the cabin this summer when my mother-in-law brought them. I instantly asked for the recipe because I kept going back for another little slice.


Obviously, when you eat little slices the calories don’t add up like if you ate one big bar, right? That’s my rationalization anyways. It makes me feel better when I snitch a bite out of the pan!

When I got the recipe from her it was a copied recipe card, which means it’s been around for a while. I just love those recipes because they are family favorites that have been tested, tried and made over and over again. Always the best!

Of course, me being me, means I twisted it up a bit. I can never follow a recipe just the way it was wrote. I doubled the amount of cereal in them because I like a higher cereal to chocolate ratio. These are THICK Chocolate Peanut Butter Rice Krispies Bars and that’s just how I like them!

I’m guessing you have most of the ingredients right in your pantry if not all of them! I mean there’s only FIVE ingredients so that’s pretty awesome!

Chocolate Peanut Butter Rice Krispies Ingredients!

  • Creamy peanut butter
  • Semisweet chocolate chips
  • Butter
  • Mini marshmallows
  • Rice Krispies cereal

These are quickly become an old staple and my go to recipe when I’m in a pinch and need to bring something to a last minute party or when someone asks you to bring bars to a community dinner! I mean No Bake Bars are always a winner because they are fast and easy!

I usually make Scotcheroo bars because they are an old favorite and always the first to go. Why is that? If I make something fancy and delicious they sit there. I make an old favorite no bake bar and it’s the first gone! You’d think people would want to explore and get something they don’t always get, but nope, they stick to the tried and true recipes.

I think it’s because you might have “buyers remorse”. You know that feeling when you go out to a restaurant for dinner and order something new and exciting, only to get it and it’s not nearly as good as you thought. You sit there and end up wishing you would have ordered your old favorite. Or at least I do! I’m pretty boring like that!
