Peanut Butter Rice Crispy Treat Truffles #SundaySupper

What do you usually bring on a picnic? I’m almost always in charge of dessert. Cupcakes, cookies, brownies, usually dessert that can hold up without refrigeration or needing two hands to serve. After all, you don’t grab dessert until your plate is already piled of hot dogs, macaroni salad, potato salad, and other picnic classics (I’m not very good at balancing my plate). These Peanut Butter Rice Crispy Treat Truffles are the perfect size to squeeze dessert onto your plate for today’s #SundaySupper picnic.

I’m pretty much obsessed with rice crispy treats. It was only natural for me to make them into little bites. I strongly believe you can’t have a picnic without something chocolate and peanut butter; however, if you are worried about peanut allergies, they are still addictive without the peanut butter.

Since tomorrow is Memorial Day in the US, I decorated with patriotic sprinkles. You can dress up these truffles for any occasion – red and green for Christmas, blue or pink for a baby shower, rainbow for a birthday party, or your favorite color just because. You can even decorate with chopped peanuts or simply leave them plain.

Of course the one downfall to these peanut butter truffles is the chocolate may melt if left out in the sun too long. Keep them in the shade, in a cooler, or keep them in the refrigerator right before serving to ensure minimal melting.

Oh I almost forgot to mention these are no bake truffles, so no need to turn on the oven when it’s a million degrees outside. There is some heat from the stovetop, but it’s only long enough to melt the marshmallows then later to melt the chocolate. And they can be made ahead of time so you aren’t stressed on picnic day.

Peanut Butter Rice Crispy Treat Truffles
 
Author:
Serves: 6 - 6 1/2 dozen truffles
Ingredients
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 10 ounce bag of regular-sized marshmallows (roughly 40 marshmallows)
  • 6 cups rice crispy cereal
  • 1 1/2 cups creamy peanut butter
  • 16 ounces semisweet chocolate, chopped
  • Sprinkles
Instructions
  1. In a large pot, melt the butter. Add the marshmallows and stir until melted and smooth. Add 1/2 cup peanut butter and stir until smooth. Turn off the heat and add the cereal. Mix until everything is coated. Roll the cereal into 1-inch balls and place on parchment paper (be very careful - the cereal mixture may be hot). Let cool completely.
  2. Bring a pot of water to a boil then turn down to simmer. Add chocolate and remaining 1 cup peanut butter to a heat-proof bowl. Place the bowl over the water, being careful not to let the bottom of the bowl touch the water. Stir until the chocolate and peanut butter is melted and smooth. Remove from the heat.
  3. Using a fork and a spoon, take one treat and roll it into the chocolate until completely covered. Pick it up with the fork, let the excess chocolate drip off, then place it on parchment paper. Repeat with the remaining treats (if the chocolate starts to harden, you may need to reheat it). Decorate with sprinkles then cool until the chocolate hardens.

  3. Of course you take rice crispy treats up a few notches with these truffles. Seriously goodness with peanut butter and chocolate. Little bites of yummy!!

  4. I love that you kicked up plain old Rice Krispies treats! These look super awesome and would be a hit at any party!

  5. I have a feeling these wouldn’t be sitting out too long! They look like they’ll be eaten up first. Yum!

  6. Gorgeous! I’m pretty sure I could eat about ten of these yummy little things. Or more. ;)

  7. What a surprise – peanut butter and rice crispy treats. I agree, this will be the best dessert for us all this weekend.

  8. It’s really hard to sell me on dessert but I LOVE THIS! Thank you for sharing!

  9. Also, will the chocolate coating work without the peanut butter?

  10. So pretty, Carla…and equally delicious! I adore pb Rice Krispie Treats and making truffles out of them was genius :)

  11. So cute, Carla!

  12. I am always the one doing the cooking so desserts are often the job of other people. But lately I have been getting a break from cooking and been bringing more desserts. This sounds like a great idea, especially with kids.

  13. Diana @GourmetDrizzles says:

    ADORABLE!!! What a fun treat ;-)

  14. I’ve never seen rice crispy treats look like that before. YUM!

  15. Sprinkles make everything so festive. I love that you took these classic bars and made them into truffles. Even better for a picnic!

  16. I looove the crunch of rice crispies in just about anything – these look awesome, and so simple! Pinned – I know I’m gonna love these :)

  17. They could always be left in the cooler until ready to serve but I know they wouldn’t last too long so there would be no fear of the chocolate melting!!!

  18. Heck, you can’t go wrong with chocolate and peanut butter at any get together! I’m sure these delicious little truffles are a crowd pleaser.

  19. They are to cute to eat, but i can try :)

  20. Awesome! Actua;;y had an old teacher of mine ask if I knew this recipe… now I can say I do!

  21. Seeing your recipe put a smile on my face! Great recipe

  22. i had to laugh when you said that the chocolate would melt outside. You really think these would last that long? I don’t. Beautiful, Carla!

  23. Ahhhh YUM YUM YUM!!! I love how simple and spectacular these are-they would def. wow at any party!

  24. Ohh man, these are just beautiful! And not just that, they are adorable and I love the poppable size. Yum :) Great recipe!

  25. Carla, I would always appoint you to make dessert at any event – you’re the queen of sweets! I’d be all over these rice crispy treat truffles and I love the patriotic sprinkles on top. The last time I made something similar to these, I kept them all in my freezer and ate every single one by myself. SO dangerous – keep me away (but don’t)!

  26. I wish I had these right now. That is all.

  27. These are so cute! They remind me of the classic Midwest treat – Buckeyes. But these have a little crunch to them from the Rice Krispies, so I think I’d like these even more than Buckeyes!

  28. Rice crispies in a truffle! Great idea.

  29. I made similar truffles to look like Buckeye truffles awhile back, they are so good!

  30. I love the addition of crispies for a nice crunch. I can see why you’re obessed with crispie treats–they’re fun and delicious. These look wonderful!

  31. Oh yeah… truffles! I am so there. My favorite combo – peanut butter and chocolate – add some crispy rice crispies and I’m there. You have the best recipes Carla.

  32. Yum. Just… Yeah. Yum.

  33. These are so cute and I love that they’re bite sized. So yummy!

  34. For some reason I was thinking the PB was mixed in the marshmallow, don’t know why I didn’t think it was the other way around. However it’s made. YUMMM!!

  35. Love truffles and this yummy version with Peanut Butter and marshmallows will surely be a hit with my kids :) Thanks for a great recipe! I’m going to try this for sure :)

  36. OMG, I love these. . I have an over abundance of marshmallows right now (bought way too many bags for my daughter’s birthday marshmallow cupcakes). Totally going to make this! LOVE!

  37. Chocolate & peanut butter is ALWAYS a winning combo :)

  38. I love these A LOT!

  39. These are brilliant! Pinning!
