Chocolate Peanut Butter Krispie Treats
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!

For the topping, you’ll need:
- Milk chocolate: You can also use semi-sweet chocolate.

How to make Chocolate Peanut Butter Krispie Treats
To make these squares, simply grab a large microwave-safe mixing bowl and add the marshmallows.
Heat in 30 second intervals, stirring after each one, until completely melted.
Add the melted butter, peanut butter, and vanilla extract, and whisk until combined.
Add the Rice Krispies and mix until completely coated. Throw in a few extra mini marshmallows if desired.
Spoon the mixture into an 8×8-inch square baking pan lined with parchment paper or foil, and spread out.
Press firmly into a packed, even layer.
For the topping, add the chocolate and peanut butter to a microwave-safe bowl and heat in 30 second intervals, stirring after each one, until melted and smooth.
Pour the chocolate over the Rice Krispie layer and spread out evenly.
Refrigerate until set – about 30 minutes. Cut into squares, serve and enjoy!

NOTE: For best results, I highly recommend using the gram measurements (with a digital scale), rather than the cup measurements.
Cup measurements are simply not accurate enough, and I cannot guarantee the best results if you use them.
