Who doesn’t love rice crispy treats? Who doesn’t love peanut butter and jelly? Both remind me of childhood and both are some of my favorite foods. (Childhood food = good food.)
Not only are rice crispy treats a great gluten-free dessert, they’re not too bad for you in terms of desserts and calories. (These won’t set you back as far as a deep fried cupcake.)
I love recipes with few ingredients. Few ingredients means less time spent getting a recipe together and more time for the fun part: mixing and baking and eating.
Try making these fun little rice crispy treats for a great childhood throwback.
Peanut Butter and Jelly Rice Crispy Treats
1 Tablespoon butter
3/4 cup chunky peanut butter
1 10oz package marshmallows
6 cups rice crispies
1/2 cup grape jelly
Grease an 8x8 square pan, set aside. Melt butter in a large stockpot. Add peanut butter and marshmallows on medium heat until melted.
Stir in rice crispies and pour half into the greased pan. Using an offset spatula, evenly spread the grape jam. Then, pour the other half of the treats on top. Chill and cut.
Once the peanut butter and marshmallows are melted, it can be a bit difficult when you add the cereal. Add the cereal in batches instead of all at once to avoid difficulty and a big mess.
