  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup White Karo Syrup
  • 1 1/2 Creamy or Chunky Peanut butter.
  • 5 1/2 cups Rice Krispies
  • 1 cup milk chocolate chips
  • 1 cup butterscotch chips


  1. Cook the sugar and karo syrup together until it boils.
  2. Then remove from heat. Add the peanut butter and stir til well blended.  Then add your rice krispies.  (You'll want to use a BIG bowl).   Stir in and press into a greased 9 x 13 pan.
  3. Melt and spread on top- 1 cup milk chocolate chips and 1 cup butterscotch chips.  I just melt them in my glass measuring cup in the microwave.  Don't over melt them or it will turn sugary.

Happy Memorial Day! I first want to start by thanking all those who fought and are fighting for our country. We wouldn’t be called the Land of the Free without you. Thank-you for all you do!
A lot of people get together with family and not only remember, but celebrate this day. I know how stressful planning the BBQ is so I have a solution for those who don’t have a BBQ treat yet.  These peanut butter rice krispies are super fast and taste amazing! My mom made these all the time when we were little. Being away from family I always get a little home sick – especially on holidays. But making these made it feel like my Mom had been cooking in my kitchen! I hope you all have a wonderful and safe Memorial Day!

  1. My Mom has made a variation of these that are ice cream sandwiches.

    You mix the peanut butter and Karo syrup in bowl, no extra sugar. Then add the Rice Krispies. Spread in a 13 x 9 pan that has been sprayed with PAM. Let them chill for a bit in the fridge.

    Once cool slice the treats into rectangles. Take a carton of ice cream and slice it in to rectangles to fit the treats. Place ice cream between 2 pcs of treat. She would wrap them in foil and keep them in the freezer.

    Now we just make the mix up for the treats and add it to the top of a bowl of ice cream.

    I think they would be good dipped in chocolate too.

    Might have to make some today :) Thanks for the inspiration.
