Reese's Peanut Butter Puffs Krispie Treats

If you have been following my blog for a while now you probably know what a huge fan I am of peanut butter. All it takes to deduce this fact is a quick glance at this post, this post, or this post.

Let’s face it, unless you suffer from a peanut allergy, and I apologize in advance for this post to all those who do. Chances are you are also a huge fan.

So, for all those who are peanut allergy-free, here is one krispy treat I’m sure you will enjoy!

Reese's Puffs Peanut Butter Treats

WARNING: These krispy treats are made up of two layers separated by quartered mini Reese’s peanut butter cups. ;)

These bars do look tasty-great idea to use something other than Rice Krispies. I did not even know they made Reese cereal. I do like all things peanut, so these are a winner in my book-yum!

Great, now I’m going to have fantasies about this all day!

As one of my favorite cereals as a kid, I’m pretty sure these would be my favorite ‘krispy’ treats. :-) Yum!

be still my heart!!! I haven’t had reese’s puffs in so many years, but it is my absolute fave cereal ever. This is like my dream come true!

What a clever idea! I would never have thought of that! Cap’n Crunches Peanut Butter Crunch Cereal is a favorite…this reminds me of it!

These look and sound sooo good! I always feel bad for people with peanut allergies because they really are missing out. PB is the best. Thanks for sharing!

Marshmallows can turn almost any cereal into a treat!


19 Evan Thomas August 26, 2011 at 5:03 pm

Growing up Reese’s Puffs were the ONLY cereal I was interested in. I still remember all of the commercials for them. These sound wonderful.

I love the idea of making rice krispy treats with different kinds of cereal. It would also be fun to use different kinds of homemade marshmallows, like chocolate!


21 Kita August 27, 2011 at 1:54 pm

This post totally reminded me of those reeses puff breakfast cereal back in my school days! These treats look sooo tasty! We’ll have to eat all of these up just in case anyone with allergies should happen by. Safety first. ;)


22 Vicki @ WITK August 27, 2011 at 4:00 pm

Delicious, add a layer of chocolate on top and I’m yours! :)


23 Suzanne September 15, 2011 at 10:05 pm

these look wonderful and I know all the people at my house would gobble then down, saving this one :)


24 Vicky May 22, 2012 at 9:49 am
