I absolutely LOVE Rice Krispie Treats and they were always my favourite as a kid.

I’ve already shared with you The BEST Rice Krispie Treats (the best in my opinion anyway!), and now I’ve just made them even better.

I threw in some peanut butter and topped them with a thick layer of chocolate.

These Chocolate Peanut Butter Krispie Treats are thick and chewy, they’re loaded with peanut butter, and topped with a generous layer of chocolate that has also been melted with peanut butter!

Cup measurements are simply not accurate enough, and I cannot guarantee the best results if you use them.
