I saw these Peanut Butter Krispy Bars on several food blogs and HAD to make them. They are basically candied rice krispie treats with a layer of peanut buttery goodness and a chocolate topping. Yum, right? They are very, very rich, but I think I would make a few adjustments next time. I actually am a big fan of rice krispie treats, and I think these would benefit from having MORE of the rice krispie treat. With the current recipe, the rice krispie layer is very thin. I think it’s overpowered by the peanut butter layer. Also, I believe the original recipe calls for milk chocolate. I used bittersweet instead, because I thought the milk chocolate and peanut butter combination would be too sweet. I think this was a good call. All that said, Peter, who is NOT as big a fan of rice krispie treats as I am, thinks the bars were fine as is and would not increase the rice krispie treat to peanut butter and chocolate ratio. So, do what you must.
I am too lazy to type out the recipe, so please go to Smitten Kitchen’s post about it, which is here. Her photos and everything are way better than mine, anyway!
