Peanut Butter Rice Crispies - A Little Bit of Heaven

“Is this Heaven?”

“No, it’s Iowa.”

If you ever want to see a grown man cry, watch Field of Dreams with him. You’ll get to the very last scene with Kevin Costner and his father finally meeting in the famous cornfield baseball field. After their short, slightly awkward conversation, he and his father say goodnight and shake each other’s hands, referring to each other by their first names. But as his father walks away, Kevin’s character says, in a near tearful voice, “Hey Dad, you wanna have a catch?” His father replying with a nod, “I’d like that.” With James Horner’s scored music playing in the background, a father and son finally play catch together.

Gets me every time. But if you’re going to make your guy cry (or even yourself), please make these heavenly peanut butter rice crispies to make up for it :)



Ingredients -

  • 1 Cup Sugar
  • 1 Cup Karo Syrup
  • 1 Cup Peanut Butter (Creamy)
  • 3 Cups Rice Crispies
  • 1 to 1 ½ packages of Guittard Milk Chocolate Chips

Directions –

  • Combine Sugar and Karo Syrup in pan and heat until it boils. Allow to boil for 1 minute.
  • Remove from heat and add Peanut Butter and Rice Crispies.
  • Mix together and put in 9x13 or 11x17 pan (or any size around those measurements – depends on how thick you want them).
  • Spray pan with Pam (or use oil or butter) before pouring Crispie mixture in.
  • Melt Chocolate chips in microwave or heavy sauce pan.
  • Pour chocolate over Crispies and place in fridge or freezer until chocolate has set up (I leave them out on the counter which works as well).

*If you want moist rice crispie treats, add less cereal than the 3 cups (2 ½ cups).

**Melting chocolate in the microwave - Heat it on medium high for about 1 minute to start with. Remove from the microwave and stir. Repeat heating at shorter intervals, 15 to 20 seconds, stirring in between, until the chocolate is completely melted and has a smooth consistency.
