Tips, Tricks & Common Questions

– Can I use natural peanut butter?

– I wouldn’t recommend using natural peanut butter for this recipe, as it may cause the bars not to set correctly. Stick to regular peanut butter for best results.

– Can I use chunky peanut butter?

– Absolutely! Feel free to use chunky peanut butter if you prefer a bit of texture in your treats. Just reduce the amount to 3/4 cup for the perfect balance.

– Can I freeze Peanut Butter Rice Krispie Treats?

– Yes, you can freeze them! Place the treats in an airtight container with wax paper between each layer to prevent them from sticking together. They can be frozen for up to 2 months. Thaw them in the refrigerator before bringing them to room temperature and serving.

– My treats turned out too hard; what should I do?

– If your Rice Krispie treats end up too hard, the marshmallows will likely be burned. Next time, melt everything together over low heat or use a lower heat setting. You can also reduce the amount of cereal to 5 3/4 cups. If you already have a batch that’s too crunchy, warm them up in the microwave for about 15 seconds before enjoying.

– My Rice Krispies didn’t stick together. What went wrong?

– Try pressing them down firmly into the baking dish to ensure your treats stick together well. If your kitchen is warm, let them chill in the fridge to firm up before cutting them into squares.

Avoid storing these treats in the fridge, as they can become too complicated. Enjoy the chewy, peanut buttery goodness at room temperature!
