Peanut Butter and Chocolate Cereal Treats

Super fast and easy! Perfect to whip together for your kids and their friends!

Total: 1 hr 45 min (includes setting time)

Active: 15 min

Yield: 24 bars


Nonstick cooking spray, for the parchment and spatula

6 tablespoons unsalted butter

1/3 cup creamy peanut butter

One 10-ounce bag mini marshmallows

One 18-ounce box peanut butter crunch cereal, such as Peanut Butter Cap’n Crunch or Reeseā€™s

6 ounces mini semisweet chocolate chips


Line a 9-by-13-inch baking dish with a piece of parchment paper, leaving 1 inch of paper hanging over each side of the dish. This will help with removing the treats later. Spray the parchment paper with nonstick spray.

In a 6-quart Dutch oven over medium heat, melt the butter, add in the peanut butter till fully incorporated. Add the marshmallows and cook, stirring continuously, until the marshmallows are melted, 3 to 5 minutes.

Reduce the heat to low and quickly add the cereal and peanuts; stir to combine. Transfer the cereal mixture to the prepared baking dish. Lightly coat a spatula with cooking spray, then use it to spread out the cereal mixture evenly.

Sprinkle mini chocolate chips over the top of the cereal treats. Refrigerate, uncovered, until set, 1 to 1 1/2 hours.

Remove the cereal treats using the parchment paper and cut into 24 bars.
