There is something so simple but indulgent about a krispie treat. A family friendly recipe that you can bake along with the kids but this recipe has more of an adult twist to it with a cheeky layer of peanut butter and topped with rich chocolate.

Method

  1. Prepare a square baking tin by lining it with greaseproof paper.

  2. Measure the Rice Krispie out into a large bowl and keep to one side.

  3. In a heatproof bowl melt the butter and pour in with the Rice Krispies.

  4. If using large marshmallows chop in half using scissors or tear with your hands and place in a microwavable bowl with 2-3 tbsp of water and microwave for 2 minutes, in 30 seconds bursts, stir between each one. Alternatively, you could melt in a saucepan on a medium heat over a hob.

  5. Pour the melted marshmallow into the Rice Krispies bowl, using a spatula to clear any excess off the sides. Mix all the ingredients together until fully combined.

  6. Pour the mixture into the lined square baking tin and use the spatula to smooth down the top. Place in the fridge to chill for 30-40 minutes to set.

  7. Once they have set, spread a layer of peanut butter on the top and leave to one side. 

  8. Melt the chocolate in a heatproof bowl and pour over the top of the peanut butter and leave to cool before moving to the fridge to set. 

  9. To achieve a smooth finish when slicing the krispie squares, heat the knife under warm water before cutting.

    I melt everything except krispies and chocolate together in microwave as it mixes better. I also melt the chocolate and some butter in the microwave to melt for the top.
