Chocolate-Peanut Butter Treats


     If you like Rice Krispy treats you are going to love this kicked up version.
     Spring Time M&M's are the best. I took this pic when they were still warm
     and gooey. I'd like to tell you I made these for my kiddies but, I'm the biggest
     kid of all. It also would be a perfect Easter Treat! I can't believe my Birthday
     is on Easter this year. I think that's a first for me. =)

                                    Chocolate-Peanut Butter Treats

     1 bag of large marshmallows
     3 tablespoons butter
     2 tablespoons peanut butter
     6 cups of peanut butter Cap "n Crunch
     1 bag of M&M's

     1) In a large saucepan, combine the marshmallows, peanut butter and butter.
     Cook and stir over medium-low heat until melted. Remove from the heat.
     Stir in cereal and M&M's.
     2) Pat into a 9x13 pan coated with cooking spray. Cool and cut into bars.

  1. Thank you for this recipe! We just moved into a furnished home with no oven...just a stovetop! What great "baked" goods for me to try :)

    P.S. We are headed to Southern California next week and can't wait...I hope the weather stays warm!!

    Love rice crispies treats...yours adds the flavor of peanut butter and chocolate...love Captain Crunch cereal. I also have a recipe for Almond Bark Christmas Balls with Captain Crunch cereal and peanut butter. I made it for a high school band bake sale fundraiser...they went away quick. I'd be glad to forward you the recipe.

    Val, my daughter's 18th birthday is on Easter this year!!! Since our Texas Blue Bell Ice Cream is being sold in Colorado stores now, she plans to have an ice cream party with Blue Bell ice cream flavors. The new Colorado ice cream flavor is called Rocky Mountain Road which has chocolate ice cream with swirls of marshmallows and pecans, almonds, pecans and peanuts...yummy.
