Each Sunday we have family movie night and I whip up a special treat to share. Peanut Butter Oreo Rice Krispie Treats was the result of one of these sugary sweet experiments. We have some favorites that we make often, but every once in a while we go a little wild and invent something new. We love Oreos dipped in peanut butter, but that is a messy treat to take down to the theater room with little ones so mixing them with a handheld treat was the perfect solution!
The best part is they are so easy! You can whip them up in a matter of minutes. Just use your standard Krispie treat recipe, but replace a cup of the cereal with a cup of crushed Oreos and add in a scoop of peanut butter. Adding peanut butter adds protein which makes them a better snack, right? Ha!
My hubby gave his stamp of approval so I suppose everyone is happy! I hope you’ll try this Peanut Butter Oreo Rice Krispie Treats recipe and let me know what you think. Having a big glass of milk handy is the best way to enjoy them! Cold and creamy with sweet and crunchy, yes please!
