Peanut Butter Squares

Peanut Butter Squares

Those chocolate peanut butter cookies I had at the Picnik Party on Saturday really set me off on a peanut butter binge. I finished off the remains of a jar I had in the cupboard, and when I was at the grocery store ended up buying 2 fresh jars - I couldn't decide between a jar with just ground peanuts or one with peanuts and a little bit of sugar. In the end, I decided that it would be best to stock up.

These squares seemed like a good place to start using up my peanut butter stockpile. They're really just a peanuty variation of a rice krispy treat, with peanut butter and karo syrup taking the place of the butter and marshmallows, and I'm fine with that. They took practically no time to make, and are quite tasty. Next time, I might have to spread a little nutella on them though!

1 cup peanut butter
1 cup karo syrup (lite or dark)
1 cup sugar
6 cups rice krispies

Mix together the peanut butter, syrup and sugar in a saucepan.

Stir over medium heat for about 5 minutes, until smooth and bubbling.

In a bowl, pour the warm mixture over the rice krispies. Mix well.

Press the mix in to a lightly greased pan.

Let cool, then cut in to squares.


  1. This seems like a very simple quick treat! I'm gonna give this a try soon! :D

  2. My family has made this recipe for years. Works well with Special K cereal, and with Cheerios too. We take them camping :)
