Okay, let's have a little confession time here, folks- how many of you all purposely buy extra bags of candy for Halloween just to make sure you have enough to make some tasty treats with? (Raises hand.) Or maybe you are the one who waits until November 1st, and then picks up a few bags while they are on clearance. (Also guilty on that charge.) I mean, there is just something about having hoards of extra trick or treat candy on hand that makes me want to get into the kitchen and whip up a few goodies. If you find yourself with some extra Snickers on hand after those porch lights go off this weekend, then you will definitely want to make sure that these Snickers Peanut Butter Rice Krispies Treats happen.

Snickers Peanut Butter Rice Krispies Treats
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 5 minutes
Ingredients (9-12 servings)
- 20 Snickers Minis, unwrapped & chopped
- 3 tbsp butter
- 10 oz bag of mini marshmallows
- 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
- 6 cups of crispy rice cereal
- 1/3 cup honey roasted peanuts
Chop your Snickers Minis and set aside. Line a 13x9 glass pan or baking pan with parchment paper. (You can also spray it with cooking spray.) Set aside.
In large saucepan, melt the butter over low heat. Add in the marshmallows and stir until completely melted. Remove from heat, and then quickly stir in the peanut butter.
Add in the crispy rice cereal, & stir until well coated.
Using a buttered spatula or wax paper, evenly press the mixture into the prepared pan. Quickly top with the chopped Snickers and peanuts and then gently press them into the top. Allow to cool completely, and then cut into 2-inch squares.
Best if served the same day.
