Chocolate Peanut Butter Rice Krispie Roll

It’s December!
December 1st.
Ready to gain 5 pounds?

Okay, hopefully not.
Buttttt (sorry), let the countdown to Christmas begin!….with something gooey, chocolatey, and freaking good.
This is my sister Camille’s go-to recipe.
And last month I was totally craving a slice.
So I asked her to for the details, made it that day, and almost finished it off that night (with the help of a few friends).
Seriously, it’s soooo good……
Are you sold?

Chocolate Peanut Butter Rice Krispie Roll

Line a cookie sheet with wax paper. Generously spray it with non-stick spray and set aside.

In a large bowl, microwave for 2 min:
1 package mini marshmallows – 10.5 oz or 297 grams (appx 6 and 2/3 cups)
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup peanut butter

Stir ingredients and add:
5 1/2 cups Rice Krispies

Mix well and spread mixture on the greased waxed paper. Coat hands with non-stick spray and flatten out Rice Krispie mix until it is even and compressed. Set aside.
Melt together in microwave, in 20 second intervals:
1 1/3 cup Chocolate Chips
3/4 cup peanut butter chips (if you don’t have PB chips in your area, use more chocolate or mix it up with butterscotch chips?)
Be careful not to overmelt the chips or they will burn.

Spread the melted peanut butter and chocolate onto the rice crispie mixture. Roll the Rice Krispie mixture horizontally into one log–lift the wax paper at one end to help. Refrigerate for appx 30 minutes. Slice and serve.
I can’t decide if I like them better cold from the fridge (so the chocolate is chunky)….or at room temperature (so the chocolate is gooey).
Either way I can’t help but eat about 3 slices, in one sitting.

In case you missed the intro, we’re counting down the days till Christmas with a new recipe each day–that’s 25 sweets and treats from me and other blogging friends. I’ll be adding recipe links as the month goes by on the archives page HERE. See you tomorrow!

    Made these and they are sooooo yummy! And easy too! I like that I didn’t have to heat up my oven to make a tasty cookie-like treat ;). I’m hoping to have everyone eat them when I take them to a party tonite……they are tooooo dangerous to have at my house…!

    Hate to admit my age but over 40 years ago at work, a fellow employee’s mother would make these for our pot luck affairs. I always intended to this myself and still haven’t but they are sooooooo simple and tasty!

    She just forwarded the recipe, so I’m gonna make some for my niece’s birthday party this weekend. Thanks for paying it forward!

    SO yummy! Do they freeze well or have a good shelf life? I have a bake exchange next weekend and would love to take all 10 dozen of treats with just these haha!

      Oh yes! You can definitely make this a week ahead or longer and just keep it in the fridge or freeze it!

    i have tried these they are good to eat…but i would definitely cut back on using 1 1/3 cups of chocolate chips
    i the peanut butter chips were fine,but using too much choc chips..mayby try using the same amount of choc chips with the peanut butter chips,,
    when i went to roll the rice crispie roll..the choc & peanut butter chips,melted together were oozing out the other end of the roll,making hard to work with…the rolls were big..i wanted to try to make it medium size,
    but it didn’t happen..but i made the best of it..i made 2 of them,regardless of the chips oozing out the other end,,

    when i did make these,in the recipe it should have said~let the chocolate,peanut butter chips that,that is spread over the rice crispies,let cool for for a bit but not to let cool too much so you can’t make a perfect pinwheel..i ran into issue’s like it said it my previous comment..

    I just made these today, and I was surprised by how easy they were. I didn’t have wax paper, yet they were very easy to roll. I cut them into 9 slices, and I did limit myself to only 1. Very good, although I might increase the ratio of peanut butter chips on my next attempt.

    I’ve made these numerous times and they are always a hit! When I take them places I am always asked for the recipe. So yummy!

  14. 17) Neisha

    What size of pan do you use?

  15. 18) Jaime

    I’ve been making these for the past 10 years and they are my go to Rice Krispie recipe. They’re a huge hit, so easy and so yummy. I think I love them cold from the fridge the best!
