Ridiculously Easy Rice Krispie Treat

This was the easiest recipe I have done in quite a long time.  Martin wanted to make this for our Christmas baking day.  Martin2  brought this home over the weekend when he visited his mom for their baking day.  (Confusing, huh?!)  Martin2 gave me the recipe. This is a treat they have made in their family for the holidays for a long time.  Now we will be making it too! (maybe not just for the holidays) 😉  You will want to make it also because it is incredibly simple, fast and DELISH!

Ridiculously Easy Rice Krispie Treat

Ingredients

2 cups Rice Krispie cereal
2 cups salted Spanish Peanuts (yes, the one with the redskins on them.  You could use any nut you wanted though.)
2 cups miniature marshmallows
1 cup peanut butter (spray the measuring cup with non stick cooking spray.  The peanut butter comes out much easier!)
2 pounds white chocolate (I used 3-12 ounce bags of white chocolate chips)

Directions

1.  Line a cookie sheet with wax paper.   In a large bowl, combine the Rice Krispies, peanuts and marshmallows.121813 010

2.  In a microwave safe bowl, melt the chocolate and peanut butter on “high” for 1 minute, take out and mix. 121813 011 Put back in for 30 second intervals.  Take out and mix, until fully melted.  (Martin has great patience for this kind of job.  Last time I was in charge of this the chocolate seized.  He made sure that didn’t happen again!)

3.  Stir chocolate mixture into the cereal mixture.

4.  We used a 1/4 measuring cup and dropped onto waxed paper.  After we emptied the bowl we put the cookie sheet in the cold garage to set. (You can use your refrigerator too.  Mine was pretty full.  Good thing it is 20 degrees here!)  We let them set about 2 hours.  121813 016

5.  Store in an airtight container or storage bag.  Either works.

This took us no time at all!  Enjoy!
