Peanut Butter Crispy Rice Treats

These treats are truly ageless!

Everyone loves crispy rice treats. This version uses peanut butter and corn syrup instead of marshmallows. They are really yummy and so easy to make. I would suggest using natural peanut butter, so as to avoid the partially hydrogenated oils that most brand name peanut butters contain.

Peanut Butter Crispy Rice Treats

1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup corn syrup
1 jar natural peanut butter
6 cups crispy rice cereal
1 teaspoon vanilla
cooking spray

Spray a 9 x 13 baking dish with cooking spray.
Bring the corn syrup and sugar to a boil in a large pan. Stir in the peanut butter. Remove pan from the heat. Add the vanilla and rice cereal. Stir the mixture until all the cereal is coated evenly.
Spoon the mixture into the baking dish. Spread the mixture evenly, pressing down into the pan with the palm your hand (
wear an oven mit) using a piece of wax paper. Let cool for about an hour and cut into squares.

I have never made RCT with corn syrup instead of marshmallows. Do they taste a lot different. I personally only like them anymore with peanut butter mixed in.
I guess I will have to try this out.

Your welcome, friend.

Sara, They are kind of addicting. So he probably will freak!

Heather, The corn syrup, in my opinion does not change the taste much. Actually, if you don't tell anyone, they would never know the difference. I think you'll like them.
