No Bake Crunchy Peanut Butter Clusters Recipe
No baking required for these Crunchy Peanut Butter Clusters! An easy-to-make snack that uses ingredients you have in your pantry: peanut butter, while chocolate, Rice Krispies cereal, peanuts, and marshmallows.
- 2 cups Rice Krispies cereal (or any puffed rice cereal)
- 2 cups dry roasted peanuts
- 2 cups miniature marshmallows
- 1 cup creamy peanut butter
- 1 pound almond bark (white chocolate candy coating)
- sprinkles (optional topping)
Grab a large cookie sheet and cover in wax paper or parchment paper. Set aside.
In a large bowl, gently mix together cereal, peanuts, and marshmallows. Set aside.
In a separate bowl, add peanut butter and almond bark (make sure that almond bark is broken up into smaller chunks).
Place peanut butter and almond bark in microwave for 90 seconds. Stir, then place back in microwave for 30 seconds. Continue to cook and stir peanut butter and almond bark mixture at 15 second intervals until smooth and completely melted.
Pour peanut butter mixture over cereal mixture in the large bowl.
Using a large wooden spoon, gently mix together until all cereal, peanuts, and marshmallows are completely coated in melted peanut butter mixture.
Using a tablespoon or small cookie scoop, scoop large spoonfuls onto the prepared cookie sheet. If desired, top with sprinkles.
Let sit at room temperature for 2 hours to set up completely (or place in the fridge for about 30 minutes to set up faster).
