peanut butter crunch chocolate treats

One day while perusing food blogs, because I’m always on the hunt for the next yummy thing to make, I stumbled across a post on ValSoCal’s website for chocolate-peanut butter treats that stopped me in my tracks.

I stared.

I fantasized.

I drooled.

I coveted.

I. Must. Make. These.

Thankfully Val published the recipe so I was able to recreate this genius. I knew hubs was gonna love me for this! The treat are really quite simple to make; just like Rice Krispie treats, only with different ingredients. And Val is right – the springtime pastel M&Ms really make this a beautiful treat… don’t you agree?

Chocolate-Peanut Butter Treats

(affectionately known by me as Peanut Butter Crunch Chocolate Treats)

1 bag of large marshmallows
3 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons peanut butter (you can add up to a tablespoon more if you’d like)
6 cups of peanut butter Cap ‘n Crunch cereal
1 bag of pastel colored plain M&M’s

In a large saucepan (or pot), combine the marshmallows, peanut butter and butter.  Cook over medium-low heat while stirring until melted. Remove from the heat and stir in cereal. I stirred in half of the cereal first to make sure it was well coated, and then I poured in the second half of the cereal. Then stir in the M&M’s.  Pour and pat mixture into a 9×13 pan coated with cooking spray. Let it cool completely and cut into bars.
