My aunt used to make these when I was a little girl. I think they are a nice change from marshmallow treats.

  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 1 cup corn syrup
  • 1 tablespoon butter

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 In a medium sauce pan, mix together sugar, peanut butter, and corn syrup. Be careful not to let it burn, or it will ruin the recipe. Stir mixture until well melted. Remove pan from heat.

  1. These are GREAT! We made them 3 times in 2 weeks. Very addictive. First batch was just as recipe directs. 2nd we did a chocolate drizzle of melted choco chips and Crisco (melted until I felt texture was right) on top. 3rd batch we put a layer of choco chips on the bottom of the - Read more ...
  2. OMG this is the recipe I have been looking for. 30 years ago I was in love with the pb rice crispy treats they served for breakfast in my school cafeteria. This is it. Chewy, peanut buttery yumminess. THANK YOU!

  5. Too sweet. If you have to make this cut way back on the sugar and corn syrup.
  6. I decided to make these while for my boyfriend while he was at work. I just tried one and he'll be lucky if there are any left when he gets home!
  7. Turned out Perfect, a great alternative to rice crispy treats for people who dont eat gelatin! I also added in chocolate chips while mixing the peanut butter with the cereal. The chips melted in just enough to make a pretty swirl pattern when spreading it into the pan.
  8. These taste just like the marshmallow stuff except it has the wonderful taste of PB. If you do love peanut butter I'd advise you to go on this recipe rather than the "classical" (marshmallow) one; in my opinion it stays fresh longer plus you don't have to mess with washing melted marshmallows covered pans...
  9. My mom used to make these but she added 1 bag of chocolate semisweet morsels to the top and baked it just until they melted. Then she spread the chocolate evenly over the top.MMMMMM...MMMM good!Taste like a peanut butter cup!
