Peanut Butter Crispy Rice is a fun dessert for the whole family. I have always loved Rice Krispy boxes, and my daughter has recently fallen in love with the takeaway boxes in the grocery store.
Homemade is always better, so I set out to make the ultimate rice crisp cubes. I started to melt some butter and peanut butter in a large pan. Once it melted completely, I added some small marshmallows to the pot and stirred until they were also dissolved.Print
